Sabi Sands Game Reserve, Greater Kruger, South Africa
Kirkmans Kamp
  • The most access to the Sand and Sabi river out of any camp in the Sabi Sands which ensures some of the best game viewing in the region.

  • Spend some time in the exceptionally social bar looking out over the expansive landscape.

  • The guides are trained to the high &Beyond standard so you can expect incredible guiding. 

  • Settle in to your beautifully appointed colonial style room. Fantastic for families with its friendly feel and rooms which are perfect for a family set up.

Overlooking the Sand River, Kirkman’s Kamp is a historic camp, which was originally built in the early 1920s. The camp was named in honour of W. Harry Kirkman, one of South Africa’s foremost conservationists, who began his illustrious career as a ranger in 1927. A colonial atmosphere of gracious style and luxury has been retained, and one steps back in time upon entering the old homestead. The camp is situated in the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve, which is part of the Greater Kruger National Park.

Kirkman's Kamp offers 12 gorgeous suites with spectacular views of unspoilt wilderness, surrounding the Sand River. Old-fashioned bedsteads and souvenirs of bygone years create a nostalgic safari atmosphere. Bathrooms boast inviting claw-foot tubs and stand-alone showers for complete comfort and luxury.

Undoubtedly the most prestigious game park in South Africa, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve is renowned for having the best ‘big five’ game viewing in the country. Located on the southwestern corner of the Kruger National Park, there are no restricting fences, thus enabling the animals to roam freely just as nature intended.
