andBeyond Kirkman’s Kamp in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve shares an unfenced border with the world-renowned Kruger National Park, allowing guests outstanding opportunities to view African Game, including the Big Five. Leopard sightings occur frequently enough for these big cats to remain composed and relaxed in the presence of humans.

Wake up to the sounds of nature in one of eighteen luxurious cottages that overlook incredible views of the African bush.
Morning heralds the beginning of an adventure and though game such as vervet monkeys and warthog are regular callers at the camp, rangers like to set out early on game drives to catch the African wildlife at their best – but not without fortification in the way of rusks, coffee and tea. With the excitement of the morning’s game spotting behind them, guests are welcomed back with a hearty breakfast, leaving them at leisure for the rest of the day.
For those who like to keep busy, rangers guide walking safaris, imparting the age-old art of tracking, as well as general bush knowledge. “Twitchers” and novice bird enthusiasts are assured of an abundance of birdlife and the camp offers its own specialist birding ranger. If photography is your thing, the wildlife and magnificent vista’s create unique photographic opportunities. The rim-flow pool provides a respite from the days activities, refreshing guests for their evening game drive when the habits of nocturnal African game are revealed.
Homely, fine dining and a typical relaxed African mood around the fire in the boma encourages guests to linger and relax, savouring the sounds of nature over a glass of wine with fellow travellers.
