Kirkman's Kamp

Sharing an unfenced border with Kruger National Park, Kirkman's Kamp, with its spectacular views of the unspoilt wilderness and the Sand River, is regarded as one of the best loved lodges in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. A well-known historic camp, originally built in the early 1920's Kirkmans Kamp celebrates the atmosphere of an early South African lowveld homestead. The colonial atmosphere of gracious style and luxury has been retained, and guests step back in time upon entering the original homestead, which now houses the Lodge's sitting, bar and dining areas.

Surrounded by unspoilt wilderness, 18 guest cottages with private verandas, separate showers, free standing baths and air conditioning face incredible views where the light, sights and sounds transport you back in time. The area surrounding the lodge is world famous for its leopard sightings and renowed for having the best Big Five game viewing in the country.

It was a trans-formative experience and now our favorite hotel. The decor and 1920's setting with real artifacts from the past was incredible, the food exceeded all expectations, and the animals!! Saw the big 5 on our very first drive. Will tell…

What an absolutely incredible place. We loved Kirkman's Kamp. The staff was incredible. Our ranger Joel, tracker Vusi, and butler Simon were just fantastic. We had great couples with us on our game drives. Joel said that in his 10 years working at Kirkman's this was one of the best game driving weeks he's ever had. We saw it all.... the Big 5 plus so much more. A leopard and…
