Lodge style Victoriana delight

1920s vintage style safari lodge

To experience the truly authentic feeling of African history, stay at one of the lovely eighteen guest suites located in &Beyond Kirkman’s Kamp. This beautiful lodge has an incredible view because of its remarkable location high on a ridge. The lodge is named after section ranger Harry Kirkman who served Kruger between 1933 and 1958. &Beyond Kirkman’s Kamp is situated in the beautiful Sabi Sands Game Reserve which means that you will definitely meet the spotted hyena, buffalos, white rhinos, elephants, various antelopes and the elusive leopard.

The guest cottages all have a private verandah which will give you the chance to enjoy the view in the privacy of your own space. To warm up and relax, there are fireplaces in every room as well as claw-foot bathtubs. To freshen up, comfortable stand-alone showers can also be found. It goes without saying that the lodge also has a wonderful rim-flow lodge swimming pool with an amazing view of the Sand River valley. It’s a journey back in time, far away from all the modern time stress and noise. &Beyond Kirkman’s Kamp is the place to find peace and quiet and get the feel of the 1920s in Africa. Kirkman's Kamp features a large sitting room with a 1920s ambience, breakfast and lunch are served on shady verandahs and dinners enjoyed in a boma or candlelit bush setting.

Tripadvisor comments Kirkman's Kamp

Kirkman’s Kamp was my first African safari experience. I absolutely loved the 3 nights I stayed there. From my arrival in the beautiful setting over looking the river beds, and the sympathetically and carefully restored historical buildings and grounds. The staff were very friendly and happy and the food was delicious.

From the pick up from the airport to the ride back to the airport, this lodge did EVERYTHING right. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and knew our names from the moment we got there. The service and food were impeccable, lodging superb and the game drives met all our expectations and more. First class all the way!
