What could be more romantic than spending your honeymoon in the African bush?
At Jock Safari Lodge, we are fortunate to be in the midst of our own private concession, which offers absolute privacy, surrounded by Mother Nature, in one of the most pristine wilderness areas remaining today. This is Big 5 territory at its finest and steeped in South African history with the legend of Jock of the Bushveld.
The sleep-out option is something unique that we proudly offer at Jock. A large oversized bed, with fine linens, positioned under a Sala, is situated on your own private deck with a plunge pool, and has been created to truly immerse and embrace yourself with the sights and sounds of the Kruger. Slumber under a pristine blanket of stars with little or no light pollution – it’s perfect for honeymooners or when celebrating anniversaries. Sip Champagne whilst falling asleep to the sounds of the bush coming alive at night.
On return to the lodge, after the afternoon game drive, which stretches into early evening, you find your private deck subtly lit with lanterns and a private dinner table has been set to feast on the culinary delights created by our team of Chefs.
The mesh-enclosed tent is set up under the Sala structure, not just a mosquito net that you sleep under, which provides ample space. As it’s part of your own private suite, you have the option to move indoors should you wish.
We cannot think of a better way to sleep outside while listening to the sounds of the African bushveld, all the while in the safety of your private room area. This will surely create memories to last a lifetime as well as the extra special turndown surprises placed on your pillows.
For pure indulgence and pampering, guests can simply exhale, unwind and enjoy the extensive menu of spa treatments at the Pilgrim’s Rest Relaxation Retreat.
