andBeyonb Kirkman's Kamp - A Truely Marvelous Safari Experience
Kirkman's Kamp is everything one hopes for in a luxury Safari experience. The food is absolutely delicious and extensive in terms of choice. The evening cocktail hour is a great way to meet friendly people from all over the world over tasty and creative cocktails in the lodge's wonderful living room. The service is very attentive and friendly. The accommodations are perfect (warm and cozy) after your morning and afternoon game drives. And speaking of the game drives, which is why you visit Sabi Sands, Kirkman's Kamp gets the highest marks possible. Under the expertise of Bret, our exceptional and delightful guide, and Lucky, our amazing and charming tracker, we were able to track down the "Magnificent Seven" during our 3 night stay. And I do mean "track down." These 2 guys have super powers when it comes to tracking and spotting all the wildlife that Kruger has to offer. I can't thank Bret and Lucky enough for their efforts to make sure we had the most amazing safari, nor can I compliment them enough for their skills in the bush. We were so lucky to be paired with Bret and Lucky. If you have the opportunity to experience Sabi Sands, definitely consider Kirkman's Kamp. It was a magical experience.
3 nights - incredible animal viewing luck, and a fantastic experience
Our group (one couple around 60) and us, (30ish) stayed 3 nights - and had a 10/10 experience. The customer service here was next level. Every single person was so friendly and happy to help out. The chef's food was much better than our expectations, and we felt very safe walking around at night. We had the pleasure of having Warren as our guide, and tracker Eckson. Warren and Eckson absolutely crushed it for us. We were able to see the big five, + African dogs, and cheetahs. Our family had so much fun, literally the experience of a life time. There isn't enough kind words to describe how much fun our entire group had. The rooms were very clean and tidy, and we would definitely stay here again.

A truly wonderful experience. I received a very warm welcome especially lovely as I remembered Gift (The lodge manager) and Eckson (who I had requested to be on my game drive truck as he was our Tracker when my husband and I visited in 2019). The Communal areas and bedrooms had all had a makeover since my last visit in 2019, beautifully done. I am a vegetarian, nothing was too much trouble, the food and hospitality were exceptional. Eating in the Boma with other guests on a starlit night was wonderful. Rich my Ranger joined me for most of the meals, I was very fortunate to have someone of his experience join me - hopefully I didn't interrogate him too much about his game drive experiences! We had a visit from elephants one evening. I also had some cheeky little dwarf mongoose playing on my patio. The game viewing is second to none here much helped by having a very experienced Ranger - Rich and Tracker - Eckson. I was very privileged and humbled to see some very rare and special sightings which I always wished I may some day see. Leopards are my favourite, I was lucky enough to see two leopards each with two cubs on several occasions. It was magical just sitting and watching these two different leopard families lazing and playing . If people love cats then this is the place for them with lots of lion sightings - we tracked and saw them with a kill. It was the most memorable experience, a BIG thank you to everyone at Kirkman's. I will visit again. :)
Luxurious Safari Experience
Kirkman's is a beautifully appointed and well staffed lodge from which to watch game of all types and sizes. The staff is friendly, welcoming and the location and accommodations are flawless. My only small lament is that guides while being so dedicated to providing close views of large game, spend a good deal of time off road, plowing through bush and getting so close to the game, that at times we felt we were encroaching. However, for a mix of luxury and game viewing, Kirkman's is an excellent choice.
Perfect Safari Getaway
My wife and I traveled to Kirkman's Kamp on the back end of our honeymoon for 3 nights and we cannot say enough good things about our experience. We were picked up at the Skukuza Airport by Jade (who turned out to be our guide for the whole stay) and took a 15 minute drive through Sabi Sands to Kirkman's Kamp. Right from the get go we were already seeing a ton of animals! Of course, the highlight of any safari trip is the game drives and this is where Kirkman's truly excelled. Our guide, Jade, and our tracker, Jerry, were absolutely phenomenal. We saw the big 5 in our first 3 drives along with a countless other flora and fauna. We were incredibly blessed to be paired up with Team JJ and would highly recommend them! The facilities are not as luxurious or extravagant as some of the other lodges in the area, but what they lack in flash they make up for in personal service. Our "butler" Friday was always around to bring us a snack or a fresh gin and tonic. The food was all fantastic and the menu varied a lot day to day given how remote the location is. Thank you to all of the Kirkman's Kamp staff - we hope to be back again!
