Jock Safari Lodge

Nestling in one of the most breath-taking settings of the world renowned South African Kruger National Park lies a special Lodge named after a special dog – Jock Safari Lodge. Sir Percy Fitzpatrick and his dog, Jock, are legends who trekked to Pilgrims Rest to find gold.
The eco-conscious Niven family, Sir Percy’s descendants, established the lodge close to the area where Sir Percy and Jock made history. The Southern boundary is the old Voortrekker road which was the transport route for supplies from Delagoa Bay (now Maputo), up to the gold fields at Pilgrims Rest areas. It is amazing to note that the Jock concession is the exact side profile of Jock the dog!
Jock Safari Lodge lies at the confluence of the Mitomeni and Biyamiti River, at the southern tip of Kruger, on 6 000 hectares of untouched bushveld, kept exclusively for the enjoyment of Jock guests.
Luxurious accommodation in 12 individual thatched chalets is tastefully screened by a thick grove of indigenous trees, planted by the Nivens, and reed walls, to maintain a deep sense of privacy for all guests. Nine king bedrooms and three twin bedded rooms are all elegantly furnished, with deluxe facilities.
Harking back to South African colonial days when gold mining was all the rage, the chalets also reflect their rich African setting and cultural influences. Enjoy air-conditioning, mini bars, tea and coffee facilities, telephones, safes, ceiling fans, private plunge pools and salas (outdoor day beds) with riverfront views, plus en-suite bathrooms and outside showers.
Jock Safari Lodge encourages guests to relax and soak up the history and beauty of the Kruger National Park. The Pilgrim’s Rest Retreat is a lavish spa designed to pamper all guests with wellness treatments in serene surroundings including a steam room, sauna and exercise room.
