Magnificent experience

Ramsey, New Jersey

Impossible to express in words just how magnificent Jock Safari Lodge is. Louis and his team will make you feel welcome within seconds of arriving and it just keeps getting better. The food is wonderful, you going to need a diet after you leave. The rooms are bucket list worthy, out door shower and bathtub. Totally privacy with a million dollar view. The rangers are incredible and their love of nature, the bush and the animals is self evident. Everyone here is proud of what they do and it shows. My ranger Mayneth was brilliant. You will forget about all your troubles and be totally relaxed within 10 minutes of your arrival. Go!

Safari and golf

We bookend the smaller dependence lodge Fitzpatrick. Only 3 rooms, very personal, we loved it. Benedict our dinner waiter and David our Safari guide were absolutely professional. We also managed to book through the lodge tee times at Leopards Creek and the golf course was just a dream.
