Comments General Manager, Louis Strauss: “It’s humbling to know that our guests have taken the time to vote for us and we have their stamp of approval for offering exceptional family safari experiences here at Jock Safari Lodge. Our younger guests really do benefit from the Kids on Safari activities and in providing this educational experience we hope that it enriches them with a deeper understanding of the environment on all levels.”
The concept of Jock Safari Lodge was born by the descendants of the Sir Percy Fitzpatrickand Niven Family. They used the funds of the trust of Sir Fitzpatrick, to build the lodge in the area close to where the history of Sir Percy Fitzpatrick & his dog Jock, took place. The Southern boundary is the old Voortrekker Road, which was the transport route for supplies from the Delego bay which is now Maputo, up to the gold fields at Pilgrims Rust areas. The Jock concession is the exact side profile of Jock the dog.
