Voyage Privé members will receive 2 Game Drives and 20% discount on all relaxation retreat treatments.
Game Drives can last up to 3 hours each and are conducted twice a day in open vehicles. Enthralling sightings of elephants, a sea of buffalo horns rising from the grass as they lie resting in the growing heat and a pride of lions not far away are just some of the examples of what is waiting for you.
At dusk, a vantage point is chosen overlooking one of the many breathtaking vistas of the Kruger National Park. Sundowners are enjoyed while tales of the bush are told and a glimpse of what this unique wilderness has to offer is seen while being entranced by the ever changing colours of the sky as the sun slips into the timeslot of tomorrow. En route back to the lodge, nocturnal animals such as leopard, hyena and lion are often spotted.
Walking Safaris are encouraged after breakfast, moving through the veld enjoying vistas of unsurpassed beauty, the diversity of fauna and flora truly comes alive when viewed on foot.
Rock Art - Throughout the concession, rock art sites dating back more than 3,000 years are found depicting the spiritual beliefs and lives of the San. During their travels, members of the tribe would congregate around a communal fire, weaving stories and celebrating the gift of life while the Shaman would meditate through rhythmic dancing, singing and clapping and while in a trance, receive visions and guidance.
Frogging Safari - With an estimated 34 different species of amphibians in Kruger, Jock Safari Lodge ranks as one of the best places for Frogging Safaris. Froggers are issued head lights, nets and gum boots and set out after dark. Frogs are caught and identified, and then released back into their habitat. The rainy months of November through March are the best months for Frogging Safaris.
Bird Watching - abundant species of bird are regularly seen on the concession including raptors such as the Martial, Tawny and Fish Eagles as well as Steppe Buzzards. A wide variety of Bushveld Birds are spotted from the comfort of one's room or whilst lying next to the Rock Pool. Most commonly seen are Hornbills, Starlings, Boubou’s, Shrikes and Woodpeckers to name but a few.
Pilgrims Rest Spa - Pilgrim’s Rest, named after the quaint historical mining town featured prominently in “Jock of the Bushveld” and still in existence today, was a place to rest, rejuvenate and restock. So too is the Relaxation Retreat at Jock Safari Lodge.
