Kirkman’s Kamp, located within the Sabi Sands Game Reserve of South Africa, shares an unfenced border with Kruger National Park. A fully restored 1920’s Transvaal homestead with beautiful grounds, Kirkman’s Kamp is steeped in history and surrounded by the serene landscape of the African bush and the Sand River valley.
Twice daily game drives, interpretive bush walks, and bird watching all allow guests plenty of opportunities for fantastic wildlife viewing. The Sabi Sands Game Reserve is home to the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino), making it a great destination for first-time or veteran photo safari tours. Kirkman’s Kamp is famous for leopard sightings. Game drives cover an area of 26,000 acres, and vehicle limits paired with careful off-road driving offer guests intimate wildlife viewing experiences.
Camp amenities include an infinity pool, safari shop, library, bar, wifi, and complimentary laundry. The 18 charming cottages are classically furnished in Transvaal colonial style with a nod to the property’s history and finished with modern comforts including air-conditioning, private verandas, claw-foot tubs, standalone showers, and wifi. Enjoy first-class cuisine indoors and outdoors, daily sundowner happy hours, and mid-afternoon tea and dessert. 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.
