How Do I Get There?

From Johannesburg:

Take the N12 national road to Witbank which becomes the N4 national road. Follow the N4 through Nelspruit and Malelane. About 2 km outside Malelane, take the turn-off to enter the Kruger National Park at the Malelane Gate where an entrance fee is payable. Please have your confirmation or voucher with you.

Once you enter Malelane gate, drive straight on the H3 road, for about 37 km and turn left at the “Jock Safari Lodge” sign. Then a 3 km dirt road and you are at the lodge. Distance from Johannesburg: +/- 458 km

Note: The camp is situated half way between Skukuza and Malelane gates approximately 35 km in both directions with only 3 km of dirt road. Due to the rules and regulations of the Kruger National Park, nobody is allowed on any Kruger National Park roads during the period of gates being closed. Therefore, guests must be at their destination by the time the gates close.

Nestled amidst the lush vegetation in the South-Western corner of the majestic beauty that is the Kruger National Park lies Jock Safari Lodge. Jock Safari Lodge emerges at the pinnacle where the Mitomeni and Biyamiti rivers flow as one – a space for breath-taking wildlife sightings. The lodge with a natural wildlife terrain of 6000 hectares and exclusive riverbed traversing rights, offers guests one of the best Big 5 game viewing experiences in the country.

Traverse through this exceptional landscape on twice daily game drives as well as wilderness walks with highly experienced game rangers and witness an abundance of bird life and a staggering diversity of wildlife, including the endangered wild dog.

Rich in historical heritage, Jock is the first private game lodge within South Africa’s largest national park and was inspired by the well-known tale of Jock of the Bushveld by Sir Percy Fitzpatrick, a story of courage and loyalty set during South Africa’s first gold rush era.

This colonial styled safari lodge offers guests a unique stay, showcasing elements of history, fauna and flora, tranquility, conservation and fine cuisine in the 12 individual thatched suites at the Main Lodge or 3 luxurious suites at the nearby Fitzpatrick Lodge.
