Kirkman's Kamp

Old school colonial charm bathed in luxury..
Sabi Sands Reserve
Greater Kruger Area

Part of the prestigious &Beyond Collection, the moment you walk into the main building at Kirkman’s Kamp you’ll think you’ve been transported back in time. The fact that the main 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 ambiance 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.

Each of the 18 guest suites boasts spectacular views of the unspoiled wilderness surrounding the Sand River.

Slip into the leisurely pace of yesteryear at the charming and historic 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 Kirkman’s, the wilderness beyond is never forgotten. Wander through the spacious guest areas and admire the many mementos 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.
Private verandas attached to each suite 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.  

Experience the thrill of a safari aboard specially designed safari cruisers armed with highly trained rangers and trackers, in search of South Africa's famous Big 5..
