AndBeyond Kirkman's Kamp

Sabi Sand Game Reserve


AndBeyond Kirkman's Kamp Location Map

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.

AndBeyond’s WILDChild programme, designed especially for children visiting safari lodges and camps in Africa, is filled with fun, interactive activities that offer opportunities to learn and discover new experiences and cultures. Deeply rooted in the love for the African bush, it not only creates a series of unforgettable moments for the whole family but forges strong bonds between young guests, the planet and its people.

Expeditions may involve activities such as tracking and fishing, making traditional bows and arrows, beading, crafting and painting, as well as fun in the lodge garden or kitchen and more. Each expedition is carefully selected according to the interests and ages of the children and will be carried out in the care of friendly staff, from rangers and trackers to child minders and cooks.

To add to each child’s experience, the Safari Shops at AndBeyond’s participating lodges and camps also stock a range of WILDChild goodies, including scrapbook stickers and clothing.
