Surrounded by 15000 acres of the natural landscape, Jock Safari Lodge offers one of the best Big Five game viewing experiences in South Africa.

our highlights

The Kruger National Park is home to prolific birdlife. We had a magnificent sighting of a mating pair of Bateleurs and later a magnificent Martial Eagle. Around every corner, you find magnificent bird sightings. 

 

We found a beautiful leopard in a tree with an impala kill. We watched in awe at the magnificent sighting of this leopard adjusting and got incredible images. 

 

One afternoon we came across a  crash of white Rhinos, who wanted to leave the river bed, but a male Rhino standing on top of the riverbank would not let them as he wanted them to stay in his territory.

our highlights

We highly recommend Lukimbi to our clients who wish to stay inside the Kruger National Park. Not only are they allowed to off-road in their concession they are located in the South of the Park and the sighting are out of this world. 

We had three incredible sightings of two separate lionesses with their cubs. We were off-roading and got stuck in a ditch with a well known aggressive female to the left of the vehicle. 
We were within a few meters of her and she growled and snarled at us until we eventually got unstuck and moved away from her.

On another occasion, we had two cubs with lionesses they walked towards the vehicle and sat right next to it. They looked at us and we watched on as they played. And this is one thing I love about the Kruger how close you get to predators. 

We visited a  Hyena den on Lukimbis concession a few times, and we had the absolute best sighting of the sweetest little hyena pup! There were a few older pups who were very curious and came up close to the car and even nibbled on the tyres and boots of our tracker. And any sharp movement and they all disappeared back into the bush. 

Our first sighting of Wild Dogs was at Lukimbi, they were hunting and we followed them and eventually caught up to them with their pups. They were big enough to join the pack in hunting but was such a special sight. Not only had we not seen wild dogs. We had found them and their pups it was truly special. 

We also saw the lappet face vulture which is a rare sighting, and the Southern Ground hornbill which is always a great sight! The South of the Kruger National Park is known for a plethora of birds so if you are a birdie you won't be disappointed. 

One thing you must do whilst stay at Lukimbi is the walk down to the crocodile river. Where you sit on the rocks and are able to see hippos, crocodiles and so much more.

There is also a resident leopard that resides close to the lodge, while we were there he stayed under the last chalet all the way to the end. We had a sighting of him and he was magnificent. We also had the pleasure of seeing around three hundred plus buffalo cross all around us, and we watched as a red-billed oxpecker had a mud bath. 
 

On our return to Lukimbi, we were able to see two lionesses with three cubs. When we found them the three cubs were across the riverbed perched on a boulder the lioness contact called and they came running over across the river bed. We watched them play in the riverbed and feed. 

We had a sighting of a male leopard on a kill when suddenly out of nowhere two hyenas came and stole the kill from him. The leopard watched on for a few moments and eventually moving on as more hyenas showed up. We watched as the hyenas fought over the meal and eventually both ran off in different directions.
