Jock Supports Further Anti-Poaching Organisation in Africa

Blog by Jock Safari Lodge

Three respected and passionate non-profit organisations (NPO’s) making strides to protect and safeguard our national wildlife heritage benefited from a fundraising and awareness evening attended by Louis and Belinda Strauss on the 29th June at the Morningside Country Club on behalf of Jock Safari Lodge, which sponsored a prize in the fundraising raffle draw on the evening.

Key NPO’s at the forefront of wildlife conservation in Africa shared their work with attendees. These included: the ‘Pit-Track K9 Anti-Poaching and Conservation Unit’,  devoted to the preservation of all water, flora, fauna and animals with prioritisation to endangered species; ‘Captured in Africa’, which aims to mitigate and safeguard lions and other wildlife in the wild and ‘Saving the Survivors’, which cares for rhino that have fallen victim to poaching.

One of the event organisers Alexandra Parkins said, “We felt there is strength in numbers so the idea of joining a few like-minded NPOs, raising funds for them, while getting the word out there about key conservation issues seemed like the thing to do.

It’s a war out there for our wildlife, anti-poaching rangers, along with anyone going to extreme lengths safeguarding animals – and people need to know this. It’s not an arbitrary newsworthy item, we are losing our heritage and we do not want that to happen on our watch, added Parkins.

Our best experience of Kruger was at Jock’s. You can feel the love for nature in the heart and soul of the wonderful owners. The rooms are practically in the wild. We saw elephants just passing in front of the room. Sleeping in matras under the stars (if you want), amazing food in the river bed. Will never forget this experience!

We spent several days here in early March — simply, the best! Very comfortable room and excellent food, with a warm staff. Highlights are the twice a day game drives. This definitely is not “pre-packaged” stuff — your guide (ours was Jacob) has a keen sense of where to find the animals, and drives over river beds and down back trails to find them -in a respectful way. We eagerly anticipated this part of our trip, and it exceeded expectations. You must go to have this experience.

I visited Kruger and Jock Lodge in 2017 and all I wanted to do is come back. That happened in Jan 2022 and once again it was wonderful in every way. The location is on a normally dry river bed so you can see wildlife from your window or terrace. The staff is so gracious and helpful. The wildlife guides are the most knowledgable and enthusiastic I have ever met. I come for the beauty and the animals and Jock Lodge delivers every time.
