&Beyond Kirkman's Kamp
Luxury Safari Lodge in the Sabi Sand Reserve
The Sabi Sand Reserve
Greater Kruger National Park
Located high on a ridge of the world-famous Sabi Sand Game Reserve, overlooking the magnificent Sand River, lies Kirkman's Kamp, a lodge with a rich history and a safari experience like no other in the world.
Sharing an unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park, South Africa’s largest and most well-known game reserve in the world, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve benefits from a great diversity of wildlife. The reserve is, however, world-renowned for its prolific leopard sightings that are just unmatched to anywhere else in the world. Guests staying at Kirkman’s Kamp have the privilege of traversing 10,500 hectares (26,000 acres) of exclusive-use land that is home to, not only the Big Five but other rare and iconic species. Safaris are led by expert &BEYOND-trained ranger and tracker teams, that ensure sensitive off-roading practices and vehicle limits at sightings ensure the exclusivity of an up-close game viewing experience.
Back at the lodge, one steps back in time, into the classical ambience of an original 1920s homestead. &BEYOND Kirkman’s Kamp has spectacular views of the unspoiled landscape that surrounds the Sand River from each of its 12 guest cottages. Here, old meets new; with antique-styled beds seamlessly blending with modern comforts, while private verandas creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.
A library offers a sanctuary filled with interesting reads, while the classical sitting room provides the ultimate setting to enjoy a pre-dinner drink. Immersed in the bushscape is a rim-flow swimming pool with views of the Sand River. Guests enjoy tea on the rolling lawn, while breakfast and lunch are served on the shady and picturesque verandas. Dinner is a magnificent affair, where mouth-watering Pan-African menus can be enjoyed in a boma, on the lawns, or in a candlelit bush setting.
Choose from a variety of exciting activities such as twice-daily game drives, interpretive bush and nature walks, private, family, birding or photographic safaris, or even a game of croquet or tennis (complete with Pimms and strawberries). Our WILDchild programme is designed especially for children visiting our safari lodge and is filled with fun, interactive activities.
