Contemplating your next family trip? Why not take a Big 5 safari adventure and join us at Jock Safari Lodge nestled in the heart of the Kruger National Park?
Steeped in history of the famous Jock of the Bushveld guests can choose between two exceptional lodges – Main Jock Lodge or for families, Fitzpatrick’s at Jock. En route to Jock, why not make it fun for the kids and try to spot all the animals along the way? Your safari adventure begins here…
Make Fitzpatrick’s at Jock your home while on your Big 5 safari, with 3 perfectly appointed rooms, a private swimming pool for fun in the sun, which will offer your family quality time in an intimate atmosphere surrounded by the unique sounds of the bush. Drop your bags and allow a lodge host and ranger to discuss activity options with you, taking your family’s size, children’s ages and the weather into consideration to create the perfect bushveld experience.
Once settled and unpacked each child will receive a safari pack containing small gifts, most of which they can use during their stay with us at Jock but also to take home and continue their learning and pass on their new found knowledge of the bush. Hop on a morning and afternoon game drive and journey as a family through the Kruger bush with our knowledgeable rangers, spotting not only the Big 5 but the Little 5 too. Visit the Stevenson Hamilton Museum in Skukuza and stop off in this idyllic location for cold refreshments while you take in your surroundings. Your safari journey continues after dark, under the stars, with our guided night walks within the camp.
For kids looking to have the adventure of a lifetime, they too can enjoy game drives within the Jock concession and the Kruger National Park. On day’s they don’t wish to participate, we have fully supervised activities for them to enjoy at the Kids on Safari Programme such as, arts and crafts, puzzles for all ages, educational books and a vast selection of board games to make their stay at Jock Safari one they won’t forget.
Knowing your children are safe and entertained mom and dad can take time for themselves and choose from a unique selection of spa treatments at our Relaxation Retreat, surrounded by the lush bush settings while being serenaded by the prolific birdlife. As the sun sets over the Kruger, dine as a family under the Kruger skies in our unique boma setting, share the stories of your day and simply exhale.
