The original homestead of Harry Kirkman has been beautifully restored; 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. The moment you walk into the main guest area at Kirkman’s Kamp, 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 ambience of this 1920s South African homestead.


Impeccable and gracious service completes the old world atmosphere, as the spirit of safari comes alive at this evocative camp, set in one of the most renowned wildlife regions in the world.



Kirkman's Kamp consists of twelve charming cottages overlooking the bushveld, each with king size beds, air-conditioning, fans, indoor showers and a personal bar. 


Enjoy a massage on your private veranda listening to the sounds of the African bush.



Slip into the leisurely pace of yesteryear at the charming and historic &Beyond Kirkman’s Kamp. Located high on a ridge, the camp overlooks the Sand River like a stylish matriarch gazing down upon the landscape. The green tin roof and manicured grounds carve out a soft and cultured niche in the wild and tumbling bush. Enjoy the ritual of afternoon tea served on the spacious veranda or rolling lawn, perhaps in the company of a wild but friendly visitor or two.


Indulge in private time in the fascinating library or while away a few hours in front of the roaring fireplace in the guest sitting room. Leisure hours can be spent by the pool admiring the bush landscape and enjoying a special wildlife sighting in the river valley.



Early morning and late afternoon game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles traverse an area of 10 500 hectares (26 000 acres) and strict vehicle limits at sightings ensure the exclusivity of the game viewing experience. Sensitive off-road driving ensures that guests have the best possible view of any exceptional sighting and rangers are constantly in touch with each other to keep track of animal movements.


Interpretive bush walks are also available to guests wanting to experience the African bush on foot.
