Many years ago Harry Kirkman lived in this old homestead and hunted wildlife with a keen conservation ethic. Today, &Beyond Kirkman’s Kamp Kruger Nationa Park is the restored version of this homestead and this lifestyle, only today, instead of hunting safaris, guests are taken on awe-inspiring safari drives, safari bush walks and enjoy beautifully prepared safari meals all which showcase South Africa’s important biodiversity. Impeccable lawns roll down to a rim-flow swimming pool which then drops down towards the Sand River below. Situated in the picturesque and wild Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, part of Kruger National Park, Kirkman’s Kamp still retains the historic aura of the real 1920s Transvaal homestead, reminiscent of a living museum with its antique furniture, ball and claw baths, mounted animal heads and revealing artworks. Warthogs and antelope graze on the lawns and views dominate from the elevated position across the conservation area.

Old fashioned beds, private patios offering great views and tasteful en-suite bathrooms with claw-foot bathtubs add to the colonial feel of the accommodation with modern comforts like separate showers.
Despite the very relaxed and social atmosphere at this Kruger National Park lodge, service, meals and facilities are world-class.
