Kirkman's Kamp

Explore South Africa

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.

While not as luxurious as Ngala, the setting is lovely, the lodge warm and comfortable, and the staff fantastic. They are updating the rooms, which would address most of the things we didn't like about the room---inadequate outlets, lighting, ceiling fan operation.
