My friend and I stayed at Jock in April as part of a wider trip to SA (which included several safari stays), and had a truly unforgettable experience.
Everyone, from the friendly welcome staff, the brilliant GM, the wonderful cook and the amazing rangers, contributed to making this a truly special experience. Each went out of their way to make our stay (and that of all the other guests) special, and there is a true family atmosphere at this lodge which makes it unlike any other we have experienced.
I could give many details as to why we found it so special - but I recommend people go with an open mind and make their own experiences!
As for me, I am saving in order to go back in 2 years time, this time with the hope of being able to share the experience with my family!
