Wildnerness is vital for Wellness

Wellness is described as an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life.  Wellness can be described in many dimensions, where we strive for physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, environmental and social balance.

Dr Ian Player, the legendary conservationist, felt that we lose a sacred gateway to ourselves and our wellness if we don’t spend time in the wilderness. Nature reminds us that the world we live in can be harsh and cruel, but also beautiful and awe-inspiring.  But most importantly, it reminds us, that for anything to survive and thrive, balance is essential.

As worldwide, wilderness areas are shrinking at an alarming rate, Dr Player felt strongly about the conservation of protected places where we can still find this balance, like at Jock Safari Lodge in the Kruger National Park.

Jock Safari Lodge offers a warm welcome to one of the largest protected areas in Africa, the Kruger National Park.

Luxury accommodation offers you a choice most comfortable for you. At Main Jock you will find secluded thatched suites that offer privacy and uninterrupted views of the riverbed teeming with wildlife. The private and intimate Fitzpatrick’s Lodge is perfectly suited for friends or families travelling together seeking to unwind amongst the natural beauty of the Kruger National Park

Fine dining gives you delicious options, from those that feed your health to those indulgences that feed your soul.  Fuelling your body with fresh locally sourced produce, as well as a selection of inspired delicacies, all made in-house by our skilled team of chefs.

Our relaxation retreat takes its name from Pilgrim’s Rest, named after the historical mining town that featured so prominently in “Jock of the Bushveld”, and was a place to rest, rejuvenate and restock.  The retreat is a tranquil space where expert therapists nurture and pamper your body and senses.  An array of treatments are offered, using natural products that enhance a magical relaxation journey for rekindling your energy.

It is between thrilling game drives and wilderness walks where you find the space to listen to the sounds of mother nature. Moments of complete connect that open up the opportunity to find inner clarity that so many of us miss in our daily lives.

The seasons are a reminder to us that there are cycles in the balancing act of life. Winter is a cycle than can make us weary, where we hunker away from the cold and grey outside and lose touch with the nature that is vital for our own nature to flourish.
