Kirkman's Kamp

Sabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa
Luxury Safari Lodge Accommodation

Kirkmans Kamp
The original homestead of Harry Kirkman has been beautifully restored; the 12 charming cottages overlook the bushveld and beautiful lawns surround the lodge and swimming pool, with spectacular views of the unspoiled landscape surrounding the Sand River. The moment you walk into the main guest area at Kirkman’s Kamp, you’ll think you’ve been transported back in time. The fact that the lawn has warthog grazing on it instead of a neatly dressed party playing croquet does nothing to dispel this illusion; in fact, it all adds to the ambience of this 1920s South African homestead. Impeccable and gracious service completes the old world atmosphere, as the spirit of safari comes alive at this evocative camp, set in one of the most renowned wildlife regions in the world.

Accommodatation at Kirkmans Camp
Slip into the leisurely pace of yesteryear at the charming and historic &Beyond Kirkman’s Kamp. Located high on a ridge, the camp overlooks the Sand River like a stylish matriarch gazing down upon the landscape. The green tin roof and manicured grounds carve out a soft and cultured niche in the wild and tumbling bush. Enjoy the ritual of afternoon tea served on the spacious veranda or rolling lawn, perhaps in the company of a wild but friendly visitor or two.

While gracious style abounds at &Beyond Kirkman’s, the landscape beyond is never forgotten. Wander through the spacious guest areas and admire the many mementoes of a time gone by. Clean lines and authentic furniture transport you to the 1920s, while sheer creature comfort is never compromised.

Indulge in private time in the fascinating library or while away a few hours in front of the roaring fireplace in the guest sitting room. Leisure hours can be spent by the pool admiring the bush landscape and enjoying a special wildlife sighting in the river valley.

Private verandas attached to each cottage offer a secluded spot to drink in the breathtaking views. Old-fashioned bedsteads combine seamlessly with modern comfort and souvenirs of bygone years to create a nostalgic safari atmosphere. Generous claw-foot bathtubs complete the picture, while stand-alone showers in each room provide an up-to-date touch.
