Jock of the Bushveld 3D

Jock, our hero, is confident, enthusiastic, curious and fearless. He’s our pugnacious and loyal runt of the litter that wins against all odds. Set in the Bushveld near what is today the world famous Kruger Park region of South Africa, the story is about Jock’s adventures with Fitz, his master. Jock escapes death, builds crazy friendships and displays his unrivalled loyalty to Fitz.

As the runt, nothing comes easy to Jock, but with his mother Jess’ love and guidance he turns into Africa’s great hero. The thought of failure never enters his mind. 

The story is set in the late 1880s when Africa’s mineral richness, teeming animal life and incomparable natural beauty drew and captivated explorers and adventurers from all over the world. A place where big game roamed in their thousands and the wildest tales were true! 

The storyline focuses on the animals, and it is from their point of view that the story unfolds…..some of the characters you will meet are: Jess, Jock’s mom who is fiercely loyal and protective; Fitz, Jock’s human partner and friend; Pezulu, the colourful rooster, a comic character who’s over the top, noisy and who ‘shoots from the hip’; George, the antagonistic baboon – a villain with a mission to destroy Jock; Basil, a flamboyant, gossiping monkey who’s one liners epitomize his wit; Jim, a powerful Zulu warrior who respects and admires Jock’s loyalty and bravery; Snarly, an opportunistic witty mongrel; and then Polly, a beautiful French poodle who, although she can be rather snobbish, is the desire of both Jock and Snarly.

Jock of the Bushveld is a great story and the only animal classic to come out of Africa.
