Having just made another Angolan trip from Monday to Thursday, a long week-end (Friday to Tuesday) at Kruger was just what the doctor ordered. We (the family - my wife and 3 boys) stayed at Jock's Lodge last year and we had such a good time that we decided to make a return trip. We were not disappointed. Private Game Lodges are expensive and Jock's is no exception but the staff are great, rooms are fine and the food - well, there's just too much of it. Expect to add a kilo or two during your stay!! Best of all, alcohol and cold drinks are included in the price, so there are no extras to settle up on departure. The game viewing was spectacular. Didn't think we could do as well as we did in 2011, but we saw virtually everything again. Our Ranger, Lazarus, is the best game spotter in the business. I swear he can see a flea on an elephant's backside from 50m - in the dark!! Apart from being passionate about his job, he is knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour. When you book your stay, book Lazarus as your Ranger! Will we be back? finances allowing, I think so.
