We enjoyed the warm hospitality and wonderful service in Jock Safari Lodge. The food was varied and tasty and the accommodation luxury and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The wildlife were incredible. It was an unforgettable experience. Jock Safari Lodge was a good decision.
Andre
We had a great time. We were treated like royalty from the time we arrive. Our Guide (Jakob) went out of his way in finding the game we wanted to see. The food was fantastic and the staff great. Will be back for my next anniversary.
Andre Duvenhage
We were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived. The staff were very friendly, and the food was great. Hope to be back next anniversary.
Penelope
We stayed 3 nights and had a wonderful time. Staff were fantastic -- all went the extra mile to make our stay comfortable and memorable. If there was a fault - too much delicious food as I now have to work it off!
Hilary
Had an amazing experience at Jock Safari Lodge. The staff were wonderful, especially our ranger whose father had been a ranger before him, and the comfort and luxury of the rooms and the food were incomparable. The wildlife were incredible - I especially enjoyed watching a family of elephants eat their afternoon snack right from my room's private viewing deck. Not sure what to say about "value for money," since I lucked out and was able to stay here at a discounted price (couldn't have afforded it otherwise). What I can say is that it was an unforgettable experience and I'm so grateful to have had it. One thing to be aware of - internet access there is very poor, so just go in expecting that and enjoy being offline!
Maureen
Very good. Staff were always very pleasant and helpful. Accommodation - would have preferred an inside. Food _ good variety. Game drives - excellent driver and game spotter in Micah.
Debbie
WE thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jock Safari.The room was exceptional, staff amazingly courteous and food and wine above par. Our ranger went out of his way to give us the animal experience we were looking for without compromising any of his standards or rules(Micah). We will highly recommend this lodge to others.
Jenny
Very authentic safari experience, with first class guides, great game viewing, good food and lovely staff. Lodge could do with a bit of a face-lift, but that was the least of our concerns.
Steve and Narelle Saladine
We loved Jock Safari Lodge. The facilities were great and the service and food were first class. The thought in grouping guests so that similar ages traveled together on safari was an unexpected benefit. The actual safari and animal hunting was informative, and fascinating, Ben our allocated guide had a wicked sense of humor and his knowledge of the land and all of the animals, from smallest to largest was astounding. We would not hesitate to recommend Jock Safari Lodge!
Elly
Jocks was an absolutely fantastic place and the staff were brilliant, they went out of their way to make us feel very welcome and help us get the most out of our safari experience - will definitely stay again on a return visit to Kruger! Thanks guys!
Kalindi
We had a wonderful 3-day safari experience at Jock Safari! A big thank you to all staff who made our trip so memorable. The accommodation in the middle of wilderness is remarkable, the food is very nice and sumptuous and the most important, the rangers who take you on safari are extremely knowledgeable and patient. I would highly recommend this place in Kruger.
Brian & Colleen Snelling
An excellent stay. Attentive staff, luxury accommodation, good food and a fantastic location.
Sone de Bruyn
We are regular visitors to the Kruger Park. However, this was our first stay at Jock Safari Lodge. What a great experience! Stunning Lodge, Friendly staff, excellent service from everyone. We were so spoilt through out our stay. We had wonderful game drives everyday with a great ranger. I will highly recommend to anyone. Definitely worth it!
Chris Quayle
I cannot speak highly enough of Jock! From the warm welcome we received right down to the warm towels handed to you after each game drive, our every need and want was tended to with a broad smile! The game viewing was outstanding as well, but what amazing service and value for money... We can't wait to go back!
DEBBIE THWAITES
Jock Safari Lodge has a well deserved reputation for being really fantastic, their food, friendly service and attention to detail is awesome. But what I enjoyed most is that you have the best of both worlds. You can either relax and enjoy game drive with an experienced guide or take your own vehicle and go on your own safari.
Rose McGaw
Jock Safari Lodge was a great experience. We loved our accommodation and the setting. The food was not exceptional, we had better at other lodges but the overall atmosphere and facilities at Jock were above average.The staff were all very attentive.Pity it rained a lot during our staff so our game viewing was not that great but that just means I will have to return.
Roger Case
It can look a little tired but look through that. Great people and very attentive. Very relaxing.
Susara Johanna Susanna Bithrey
Excellent service and accommodation! The field guide was very professional and went out of his way to teach us about the wildlife. Truly a treat!

The person who was helping me with the booking, Carien, was exceptionally helpful and she made it very easy to get information and to get my booking sorted. The website was very easy to navigate and receive good information about which spots offer which amenities

Unorgettable trip in South Africa
We have spent 12 days as a family in South Africa with my 3 children and my wife who is in a wheelchair. Thanks to Pascal, Safari.com consultant, we were able to spend an unforgettable moment with a great program while being well accompanied despite our constraints. I recommand particularly the "Monwana game lodge" for a safari in Hoedspruit. It's an amazing place with very nice people and a real family atmosphere. Thank you to the entire Safari.com team for this unforgettable trip.

Superior service, knowledgeable, transparent, amazing can-do attitude
These guys get 10/10. I have booked with them a few times. To Kruger National Park, including both public and private(concession) camps, flights and car hire. Their senior agent, Dolan is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail, transparency, and 'can-do' attitude are out of the ordinary. I recently came into contact with Tanya at safari.com as well. It looks like all their agents are similarly well trained. Thank you. I cannot recommend Dolan and his team highly enough.

Cape Town miracle
I was in Cape Town, South Africa recently for an athletic competition and had allowed myself a week of personal time to relax and properly conclude the trip, but had not bothered to plan a safari to occupy the time. I was skeptical of the cost and whether I would enjoy the experience, however a couple days into that final week it occurred to me, in a bit of a panic attack, what a waste it would be not to take advantage of this opportunity. I hopped online and started looking at flights to Johannesburg (almost all the safaris in SA start there with an early morning pick up), but it was basically impossible to get a flight early enough and/or to coordinate with the multiple safaris operating in or just outside of Kruger. With no apparent options available to turn my remaining 4 1/2 days into even a 3 day safari I stumbled on the most obvious website one could imagine, Safari.com. I'd completely given up negotiating all the variables on my own but here was a safari travel agent that might be able to help me .. and they were based right out of Cape Town, literally a stones throw from my lodgings. Serendipity, or so i hoped. I immediately sent out an email and crossed my fingers .. for roughly an hour and a half, at which point Dolan from Safari.com responded to me requesting I give him a call so that we could expedite potential arrangements. My in country phone plan wasn't able to make calls, but we arranged for him to call me and not 3 hours after being in the grip of despair Dolan got through to me and far from notifying me of how absurd it was to hold out hope for a literally, last minute safari adventure with barely 4 days available to me, he had already worked out all the details I'd sent and created a preliminary safari trip that would bypass Johannesburg airport for a flight the next morning to a closer, much, much smaller airport where I would be picked up taken, not to a 3 day safari, but a full 4 day safari, then back to the tiny, tiny airport for a return flight to Cape Town with 2 hours to spare for my return leg all the way home. It almost feels like an afterthought, after the minor miracle Dolan was able to conjure up, but the safari itself at Simbavati Lodge was just an absolutely stunning experience. The single "tent" he booked me was as luxurious as any 4 star hotel I've stayed in, the game drives, one every morning, one every evening were more amazing than I could have ever imagined, and the food, 3 meals a day with snacks and an open bar was sublime. I could go on about the wonderful staff, or the wonderful other safari goers you can meet and grab a drink with, or the different animals walking through the open lodge facilities daily .. but I've gone on long enough. I'll simply conclude by saying .. safari, absolutely, yes, do it, it is amazing. And when you do decide, Safari.com will do you right and if you have the pleasure of working with Dolan, do give him my thanks .. the entire experience was the best part of my trip :)

A great company
What to say! We planned a South African Safari for 2020 with Safari.com. We researched companies and took a chance on one we had never heard of before. Henry Franklin was our agent, we gave him our budget and wish list. He came up with a wonderful looking trip and we made our choices! Then came Covid, preventing us from going. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Henry rebooked everything for the next year. He kept us updated on how things looked there. When in 2021, we decided it still looked iffy, he rebooked us a second time for 2022. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we had in a rough time for all. We had a wonderful experience on our trip when we finally got to go!! Henry had everything so well organized and gave us a detailed list of what transfer companies would be meeting us and when. When Airlink bumped us and put us on standby returning from Victoria Falls, we called the concierge number Henry had given us and Catherine worked hard on this and got us back on our flight. The Safari.com team had our back and we have no regrets. Would definitely use them again. Our lodging was wonderful, saw the big 5 within first 2 drives. Henry definitely knew the territory and did a great job matching what we wanted with where he suggested we go and stay. Thanks Safari.com, Henry and Catherine!

I've recently interacted with Dolan and hands down he's been the best travel agent that I've every worked with. He was a wealth of experience and knowledge which shows volumes. He took into consideration my budget and my individual needs to tailor make a package with recommendations for my preference,he knows Kruger and Greater Kruger like the back of his hands and I will wholeheartedly recommended his services. He is truly an asset to his institution.
