Jock was amazin!!! I have always wanted to go on Safari. My husband and i stayed in Jock for the second leg of our Honeymoon and we weren't disappointed! We were treated like royalty from start to finish! Our room was at the edge of the lodge and i think we were given this as we were honeymooners as it was out of the way. The only issue with this was that the surrounding trees and shrubs were over grown and so the view wasn't what it could of been. Our guide was so much fun and we enjoyed every drive. We were lucky enough to see the BIG 5 in the 5 days we were there. We really enjoyed exploring and seeing animals you would only ever see on TV or in a zoo.Management did daily walk abouts to check guests were happy which i appreciated. It was a very sociable lodge as you eat with everyone who is on your truck. The food and wine didnt stop flowing and the staff make you feel like part of the family. Jock safari caters for everyone as it has little jock for families and big jock for couples and small groups. We will definately be back some day!
