We had a wonderful stay at Jocks. Staff were very friendly and helpful, it was also great to see the manager coming to speak to guests and helping out during meal times. As for the food and wine, these were first class, such variety considering the location
The rooms themselves are very comfortable, our only negative was the outside bed which was ant infested (not surprisingly given the location) and there was nowhere to sit in the shade. A large hammock would have got around the ant problem. The rooms themselves were wonderful and very comfortable. A big plus was that this part of the Kruger did not seem to have a mosquito problem thus even though we took our Malarone we probably could have got away without.
As for the drives, they were amazing, the guides are extremely knowlegeable and passionate. We had Lyle for our 8 drives and had a fantastic time, thanks for a great experience. We saw the Big Five and much more. All the rangers are in radio contact and report good sightings to each other. We would definitely consider going back and would like to thank all the staff at Jocks for a wonderful time...
