3 x Luxury Suites


Fitzpatrick’s Lodge is the newest addition to Jock Safari Lodge. With only 3 suites, Fitzpatrick’s Lodge will ensure that personal service is always a priority for the lodge's friendly staff. Each of the 3 luxurious suites will be equipped with their own public areas and amenities, including both indoor and outdoor showers. While the dining and entertainment area will offer both alfresco and indoor dining facilities allowing guests the unique opportunity to experience the gracious style of old world elegance surrounded by unspoilt wilderness.
Fitzpatrick’s suites boast beautiful views into the unspoilt Kruger bushveld and guests can also relax in the comforts of the central lounge overlooking the banks of the Biyamiti River. This new lodge can either be booked as a whole lodge with its own personal chef & game ranger or as individual suites.

As with Jock Safari Lodge, Fitzpatrick’s Lodge will have exclusive traversing rights in an area that is regarded as one of the best in the Kruger for its "big five" sightings. Friendly and professional staff will cater for all guests requirements from specialised game drives or game walks - with every sound, scent, footprint or broken blade of grass - as sign waiting to be interpreted and understood. The main lodge spa will also be available for Fitzpatrick’s Lodge guests should they request spa facilities.
Guests at Fitzpatrick’s Lodge will be able to enjoy snacks and meals in the privacy of their suites or join other guests to sumptuous meals under the African sky while the chef and his dedicated team conjure up traditional dishes inspired by this unique location.

Jock Safari Lodge is a proud member of the Shamwari Group.

The Kruger National Park is the primary destination in South Africa for many international tourists. Each year more than half a million visitors are registered.

The National Park was opened in 1898 at the instigation of then-president Paul Kruger. After hunters had considerably decimated the originally rich game stock, all the land between the Sabie and the Crocodile Rivers was put under the protection of Nature Conservation to ensure the survival of the remaining animals. Only as recently as 1961 was the extended Kruger Park fenced in.
The park stretches from the Crocodile River in the south up to the Limpopo River , which is the international border in the north. Altogether it is 350 km long, 65 km wide and comprises an area of about 20,000 sq km.

A web of roads of 1863 kilometres leads through the National Park, 697 km of them being tarred. For the visitor there are numerous differently equipped rest camps, most of them scenically positioned. Within the park boundaries, travel is only allowed between sunrise and sunset. After dark one has to stay in one of the fenced restcamps.
The best time for observing the animals is the dry winter season. Then the grass is low and bushes and trees don't have leaves, so that one can have an unobstructed view. Because it virtually doesn't rain in winter, the animals come to the waterholes to drink in the mornings and evenings and can easily be watched from the car.
