Jock Safari Lodge in the Kruger National Park has been working on a major refurbishment programme which will be complete by July 10 for Main Jock, while Fitzpatrick’s will be closed in September and October, reopening November 2018.
Guests can expect a fresh new look including Victorian ball-and-claw bathtubs which will be moved onto the deck, offering outdoor shower and baths. Internal bathrooms will be fitted with double showers.
The dining area will receive stacking glass doors and a pergola roof structure. The upstairs bar will be redesigned and offer a fire pit where guests can relax pre- and post-dinner.
The lodge will also offer a new riverbed dining experience every third alternative evening (game and weather dependent).
The day salas on the suite decks will be enclosed to offer an exclusive sleep-out experience.
In other news, effective immediately, Jock will include a selection of house beverages during guests’ stay without any changes to the rates. Stays will now be inclusive of two game drives per day, guided wilderness walks, all meals, high tea, a selection of house beverages, VAT and tourism levy. A premium list of beverages will still be available.
