AndBeyond Kirkman's Kamp

Sabi Sand Game Reserve: 3 Nights

AndBeyond Kirkman's Kamp in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve was named in honour of its former owner, W. Harry Kirkman, one of South Africa's foremost conservationists. The original 1920s South African homestead has been beautifully restored and the moment you walk into the main guest area you’ll think you’ve been transported back in time. The fact that the 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. Spacious sitting, dining and bar guest areas contain original mementos of a time long past.

Undoubtedly the most prestigious game park in South Africa, the 65,000 hectare 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 Greater Kruger National Park, there are no restricting fences, thus enabling the animals to roam freely just as nature intended. Experienced rangers and trackers will lead you on morning and afternoon/evening game-drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles. You will also have the opportunity to explore the Sabi Sand Game Reserve on interpretive wilderness walks led by experienced rangers or expert Shangaan trackers, and learn more about the area's intriguing fauna and flora.

The 12 charming cottages overlook the bushveld and beautiful lawns surround the lodge and swimming pool, with spectacular views of the unspoiled landscape surrounding the Sand River. 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.  Impeccable and gracious service completes the old world atmosphere. 

Example Details For AndBeyond Kirkman's Kamp

Nights: 3 Nights
Adults: 2 Children: 0
Room: 1 x Cottage
Includes: 3 meals; tea/coffee; house wines, local brand spirits and beers, soft drinks and bottled water; 2 scheduled shared game drives daily; interactive bush walks; the Guest Conservation Contribution; Skukuza airport transfers and associated Sabi Sand entrance fees; and a laundry service are included. IN ADDITION: For guests arriving/departing via Skukuza Airport, the Kruger National Park fee will be added to your room account, for settling directly with the lodge upon departure.

Children under the age of 12 years are not permitted on guided bush walks in the reserve.

Please Note: As the animals are wild, it is not possible to guarantee what you will see during your safari.

Important Travel Information For South Africa

Passport, Visa and Entry Requirements

As of the 18th March 2020, passport holders from certain countries are now required to obtain a visa before travelling to South Africa - including the United Kingdom; United States of America; France; Germany; Italy; Spain; Switzerland; and New Zealand.

All international travellers are therefore advised to contact their local South Africa High Commission or Embassy to establish whether they need to apply for a visa. There may be a fee charged for issuing a visa. Please note that some visas may take a long time to be processed so please do take this into consideration, as it is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct visa in place before you travel. Visas are not issued at South African ports of entry and airline officials are obliged to insist on visas before allowing passengers to board.

Please note that anyone travelling to South Africa should have a valid return ticket and a valid passport. Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 30 days from the date of exit from South Africa. However, some immigration officials still request that a passport should have at least 6 months validity from the date of entry to South Africa so to avoid problems on arrival, we advise that your passport meets this requirement instead. The passport must also have sufficient pages for entry/exit stamps if you require a visa to enter the country - AT LEAST 2 BLANK PAGES. If you do not need a visa, one page is sufficient.

TRAVELLING TO/FROM SOUTH AFRICA WITH CHILDREN YOUNGER THAN 18 YEARS OF AGE AT DATE OF TRAVEL: It has been recently announced that the immigration laws for children travelling to South Africa who do NOT require a visa are to be relaxed, however not all airlines have updated their systems at the moment to reflect this amendment. Therefore, until we have received notification that all systems have been fully updated with the new relaxed rules, we are strongly advising that all passengers still adher to these following guidelines: Parents travelling with children must produce an unabridged birth certificate for the child, showing full details of the child's parents. If the birth certificate is in a language other than English, it must be accompanied by a sworn translation issued by a competent authority in the country concerned. If the child is adopted, the adoption certificate must be produced. If only one parent is travelling, said parent must also show consent in the form of an affidavit from the other parent named on the birth certificate authorising the child to travel (the affidavit must be no more than 3 months old from the date of travel - a blank Parental Consent Affidavit can be downloaded from http://southafricahouseuk.com/documents/parentconaff.pdf), or a court order granting full parental responsibilities to the travelling parent, or (where applicable) a death certificate for the deceased parent. Legally separated parents should also provide a court order when the other parent does not give consent. Where a person is travelling with a child who is not their biological child, he/she must produce an unabridged birth certificate for the child supplemented by affidavits from the child's parents/legal guardian giving consent for the child to travel and copies of the identity documents or passport of the parents/legal guardian PLUS their contact details. There are also additional rules for unaccompanied minors - available on request. PLEASE NOTE: All documents must be original - PHOTOCOPIES ARE NOT ACCEPTED. In the case of foreign countries that do not issue unabridged birth certificates, a letter to this effect issued by the competent authority of the foreign country should be produced. For more information, contact the South African High Commission via http://southafricahouseuk.com/ or the South African Department of Home Affairs via http://www.dha.gov.za/.

PLEASE NOTE: Countries can change their entry requirements at any time. Travel Butlers try to ensure that the information displayed here is correct, but the onus remains with the traveller to verify the information with the relevant High Commission or Embassy and ensure that they can comply with current passport and visa requirements.

Medical

You are advised to contact your doctor or clinic around 4-8 weeks before your trip to check whether you need any vaccinations and to get their professional medical advice regarding travel to South Africa.

To help avoid heatstroke, drink plenty of bottled water/fluids, and keep out of the midday sun.

There is a risk of malaria in and around the Kruger National Park/Mpumalanga Province, the Limpopo (Northern) Province, and the north-eastern part of KwaZulu-Natal - check with your doctor about suitable antimalarial tablets. Try to avoid mosquito bites wherever possible - wear loose long-sleeved clothing and trousers, and use a repellent on clothing and exposed skin.

There is no risk of yellow fever in South Africa, so a yellow fever vaccination is NOT required for travellers whose sole destination is South Africa. However, in accordance with International Health Reguations, South Africa requires all travellers over one year of age arriving from a yellow fever risk country, or having been in transit longer than 12 hours at the airport of such a country, to have a yellow fever certificate. These countries include Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda.
