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, if not the world. 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. The 65 000 hectare Reserve offers a spectacular African safari experience. Kirkman’s Kamp, with its spectacular views of the unspoilt wilderness and the Sand River, is regarded as one of the best loved lodges in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. A well known historic camp, originally built in the early 1920’s Kirkmans Kamp celebrates the atmosphere of an early South African lowveld homestead.
Spectacular views of unspoilt Sabi Sand wilderness • 18 cottages with private verandas • En-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning • Rim flow swimming pool The colonial atmosphere of gracious style and luxury has been retained, and guests step back in time upon entering the original homestead, which now houses the Lodge’s sitting, bar and dining areas. Each of the 18 guest cottages has a private veranda and is furnished in the same charming style. The large sitting room, with a 1920’s ambience, leads through double French doors onto rolling lawns that provide a velvety contrast to the wild and tumbling bush surrounding the Lodge. Breakfast and lunch are served on shady verandas, and dinners are shared in the dramatic boma or in romantic lanternlit bush settings.

Twice daily game drives – early morning and late afternoon / evening game drives in an open 4×4 safari vehicle traverse an area of 6 300 hectares (15 500 acres). Track the Big Five, as well as a rich variety of other game, in the company of an armed ranger and tracker. Strict vehicle limits at animal sightings ensure the exclusivity of your wildlife experience and careful off-road driving positions you for the best photo opportunities. Rangers are constantly in touch with each other to help keep track of game and the sensitive approach methods used mean that the wildlife has become accustomed to the presence of vehicles. Interpretive bush walks – in between game drives, take a leisurely walk within easy reach of your lodge and experience the sights, smells and sounds of the African bush. An armed ranger will accompany you and will share his vast knowledge of the local fauna and flora. Take in the intimate details of your surroundings, from the intricate patterns of a spider’s web to the bright plumage of the local birds and the sharp alarms calls of a dozen small creatures. Find out how the potato bush got its name, who lives in a termite mound and which berries taste so good that they can make a jackal turn vegetarian.
