AndBeyond Kirkman’s Kamp

AndBeyond Kirkman’s Kamp Kruger safaris

There is nowhere on earth like Kirkman’s Kamp, the star of the &Beyond family of safari lodges in the thriving Kruger National Park bushveld. Where ethereal colonial history blends in with an exquisite sense of timeless drama, and where premium Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve safari accommodation sets the highest levels. 

Many years ago, the legendary Harry Kirkman lived in this old 1920s homestead and hunted wildlife with a keen conservation ethic. The spirit of those colonial safari days comes alive at the historic yet restored &Beyond Kirkman’s Kamp. All you have to do to experience such grace is to book online for the best deals and rates because our fully inclusive packages for Andbeyond Kirkman’s Kamp include honeymoon specials, family fun and leisure breaks for groups. 

Gaze in awe at the sepia photographs adorning the walls and the memorabilia throughout the lodge, harking back to those days when Harry lived here. Antiques suit the old home, renovated to a modern glory that still retains the classical ambience of that time in the wilderness. Imagine how Harry would have sat ton this this very veranda, marvelling at his view, his bushveld, his wildlife. 

And now, 12 deluxe suites, also designed to retain the aura of long-gone colonial safari outings, are spread out along a raised bank above the Sand River where hippos wallow and elephants come to down to rink.  Old style Victorian beds and baths, silent verandas where trees flutter in the breezes and maybe a silent buck will stroll past. Warthogs graze the lawns and exotic bushveld birds flitter here and there. 

Kirkman’s Kamp loves to host families and children will be enthralled by the entertaining WILDchild experience – they can play tennis, bake cookies, play croquet and see animals in the wild with experienced game rangers and trackers. They will also learn about the communities and how these people are part of the wilderness here and the ecotourism ethics.

Sustainable Tourism Activities in Nature at Kirkman’s

Come to this premier lodge for sightings of leopard, lion, elephants, rhino and buffalo, but also come for the beauty of being out there in nature and you will always see plenty of antelope, warthogs, raptors, vultures, hyenas, reptiles and birds galore. Beautiful bush walks introduce guests to all the tiny interactions in nature that we miss in our busy city lives. The things that matter. Share your findings and thoughts around the boma fire at night when game rangers entertain and regale you with their many hilarious and real stories for the bush and its wildlife.

Delight in the early morning and late afternoon game drives, interpretive bush walks, birdwatching and impressive viewing of endangered animals, all reliant on human conservation programmes. The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is famed for its leopard sightings and you may well spot one of these elusive cats resting after a successful night hunt. 

Simply by booking our special safari package deals for the mythical Kirkman’s Kamp, you contribute to vital sustainable tourism initiatives in the mighty and scenic Sabi Sand Nature Reserve. You will be helping the anti-poaching missions and supporting special projects, like the Southern Ground Hornbill Monitoring and Support Programme, and The Leopard Conservation Project, which focuses on the active research, monitoring and identifying of leopards by our guides, in partnership with Panthera.

What would we all do without wildlife, the biggest drawcard for most travellers thanks to our innate love of Africa and everything alive and wild. Humans come from the land and we seek out the solitude of safari holidays for a reason. Choose Kirkman’s Kamp this safari vacation and book a few cottages for you and your friends or family. Kirkman’s will host you like no one else, and you will meet like-minded people around the fire.

Appreciate night game drives in the Sabi Sand when you go off-road in search of lions on a hunt, or honey badgers getting honey, antbears finding termites. Trackers turn on the spotlight and you see owls, nightjars and other wonderful creatures doing what they do best in their habitat.
