The room hails from the 80's. The TV is ancient and tiny, the sound on it not very good. The place was cleanish but it smelled really stale when I entered the room and opening the window just let a terrible noise in from the KFC located behind my room. The bathroom was in poor condition. The shower tap was... More

Such a perfect experience! We saw all 5 animals the first afternoon out in the bush! The food, the service, and the accommodations were top tier! My boyfriend and I got engaged and they even brought us a bottle of champagne and did all these romantic extras for us! If I get back to South Africa again, I will definitely... More

Dated lodges, yet with functional rooms. Our room # 22 was big, with 7 beds, two bathrooms, a full kitchen and a sitting room. Everything is old but clean. The restaurant is small but the quality is good.

We had a big apartment. It's really outdated. In the sleeping room a fan hangs from the ceiling. That's very pleasant, also against musquito. After dinner we found a very big cockroach in the kitchen ( we didn't use). The bathroom is very old and a bit dirty. The shower is a big problem. Water comes out, but that's everything....... More

Will never go back to Jock Sabie Lodge. At first the lady at reception was very friendly. When we got to our room it smelled like smoke... When it was a non-smoking room. The bathroom roof was covered on mold. The bedside table was covered in cigarette ash. We then complained and got a "better" room. The bathroom was again... More

The place is of normal quality. Our room itself was of a very good size! Plenty of room for your stuff/luggage etc. Bathroom was outdated and needs an upgrade! Breakfast was good, dinner (buffetstyle) was of normal quality. the fireplace near the bar is a nice feature to sit around and have a nice drink. staff friendly and helpfull.

Jock Sabies website falsely advertises their venue and does not meet up to the level of a 3star. It's on the main road with noisy trucks and locals near Spar tops bottle store. We got there 5:30pm in the evening after we got lost and I phoned reception for directions and we had been travelling for 4 hours. Lu-Jenny just... More

Please see my photos. Our room was very large and was clean - enough. Staff was very helpful in obtaining the weather report for the next day and the breakfast buffet was standard South African - which is to say that is was very good, with excellent selection of fruits, meats, omelettes, juices etc. Note that you enter the property...
