"big 5" luxury safari - SOUTH AFRICA

Enjoy a Big 5 Luxury Safari to Sabi Sands and Kruger National Park private game reserves 

SABI SAND GAME RESERVE is situated in the southwestern corner of the world-famous Kruger National Park and is world renowned for having some of the best Big 5 game viewing in South Africa. There are no fences and the animals roam freely through this pristine African wilderness. The Sabi Sand region is particularly well known for its incredible close-up leopard sightings. The reserve boasts many extraordinary luxury safari lodges.

KIRKMAN'S CAMP is one of these, regarded as one of the best loved lodges in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Kirkman's Camp is a well known historic camp, originally built in the early 1920’s, and celebrates the atmosphere of an early South African lowveld homestead. 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. Each of the 18 guest cottages has a private veranda and is furnished in the same charming style with ensuite bathrooms. 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 lantern lit bush settings.Surrounded by un-spoilt wilderness, 18 guest cottages face incredible views where the light, sights and sounds transport you back in time. You can’t help but be swept away by the allure of natural beauty and fascinating history of Kirkman’s camp.
