Kirkman’s Kamp can be found in the south western corner of the Kruger National Park in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, overlooking the famed Sand River. This historic and famous colonial camp was originally built in the early 1920’s and named in honor of W. Harry Kirkman, one of South Africa’s foremost conservationists. The colonial atmosphere of gracious style and luxury has been retained upon entering the old homestead, which now serves as the recreational hub of the camp. The large lounge, decorated in 1920’s style, leads through double French doors onto rolling lawns that provide a velvety contrast to the wild and tumbling bush surrounding the camp. Breakfast and lunch are served in the main house or on the shady surrounding verandahs while guests enjoy exquisitely prepared dinners in the traditional boma or any number of other fabulous bush settings.
Each of the 18 guest cottages boasts a private veranda with view of the Sabi Sand as well as en suite facilities, separate shower and free standing bath and air conditioning. The lodge also offers a rim flow swimming pool for a bit of rest and relaxation. The lodge enjoys traversing area of 6300 hectares (15 567 acres), the perfect setting for twice daily game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles as well as exhilarating guided bush walks.
