Kirkman's Kamp, with its spectacular views of the unspoiled wilderness
and of the Sand River, is regarded as one of the best-loved lodges in the Sabi Sand Reserve. It is a well known historic camp, originally built in the early 1920's, and celebrates the atmosphere of an early South African lowveld homestead, with a colonial style and gracious ambience.
Star rating: N/A
Each of the 18 guest cottages has a private veranda overlooking the Sand River and is furnished in the same charming style with en-suite bathrooms.
Children of all ages are welcome at Kirkman's Kamp. Certain restrictions do exist in terms of game drives and bush walks.
The kitchen team of Kirkman's Kamp is tasked with creating meals that exude the essence of Africa's richness, its history, its soul. "We want our food to celebrate our continent rather than copy Western fads or fussiness".
The freshest of fresh food is purchased from surrounding communities - lemongrass, mint, sun-ripened tomatoes, wild rice, bananas of every shape and hue, and mangoes by the treeful. Africa's pantry is endless. Our food is wholesome, natural and generous - never drowned in sauces or served grandly stacked in tiers. Our food is like our continent - it is exciting, fresh, robust, vibrant, unadorned, bursting with flavour, and very precious.
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, dining and bar areas. 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.
The camp also includes a rim-flow swimming pool and a Safari Shop.
