andBeyond Kirkman’s Kamp

Much-loved Kirkman’s Kamp earns its accolades as much from its Big 5 game viewing as it does from its charming 1920s atmosphere & personalised service.

Named after a legendary Kruger figure, Kirkman’s Kamp draws its inspiration from the golden age of safaris. Lying in the game-rich Sabi Sands Private Reserve, this much-loved lodge radiates a 1920s charm, offering peerless game viewing as well as all the luxuries. You’ll stay in an air-conditioned cottage with unspoilt views and can relax by the sparkling pool or in the well-cushioned shade of the main lounge.

Set on a ridge overlooking the Sand River, Kirkman’s Kamp is well placed to deliver the quintessential Sabi experience. Sightings of all members of the Big 5 are virtually guaranteed on a two or three day visit – indeed, Kirkman’s has something of a reputation for leopards. The general game viewing is always excellent. You’ll enjoy day and night game drives with expert guides, punctuated by treats such as mid-morning coffee and sunset drinks.

Kirkman’s is also a place where warthogs graze the camp’s lawns and where table-for-two suppers appear in candle-lit glades. It’s also good for families – triple rooms and private vehicles can be arranged, and there are fun activities and minders for younger children too.

Lodge Highlights:

  • Beautiful homestead-style lodge
  • Excellent Big 5 game viewing
  • Air-conditioned en suite cottages
  • Superb service & family-friendly

Activities at Kirkman’s Kamp

  • Day & Night Game Drives
  • Guided Nature Walks
  • Bird Watching
  • Specialist Guides

Prime position on the banks of the Sand River puts Kirkman’s Kamp at the heart of Big 5 country. The day starts early with a drive into the sunrise, on the lookout for big cats on the prowl. Leopards are something of a speciality here and you may well see one along with lion, elephant, buffalo and rhino within the course of single drive or two. The general game viewing is excellent all year round, none more so in the dry season when animals are concentrated around remaining waterholes. Specialist photographic and birding guides can be arranged.

An afternoon game drive returns to camp with a spotlight, your guide picking out unusual and seldom seen animals such as genets, bush babies and serval cats. Between drives you can enjoy the thrills of walking in big game country. Together with your guide and tracker, you’ll explore the Sabi landscape on foot, discovering the smaller details of this beguiling environment.

Faultless service, attention to detail and quality of accomodations.

The communications and service from Walter was excellent, and we were continuously fully informed. The information package and book received on arrival were excellent. We felt that we had been allocated carefully selected lodges at each camp and every detail met or exceeded our expectations.
The safari tour was wonderful, and a particular feature was the variety offered at each location which combined perfectly

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver. She responded to our requests promptly and gave us several options with links to each option; we ultimately chose Lukimbi. She then coordinated our flights to and from the property, arranged the drivers necessary to get us from the airport to the lodge and back again, and sent the appropriate paperwork to each of us to verify each step of the process. We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Experience of a lifetime and wonderful service!!

Our extended family (16 travellers, including 8 children under ten years of age!) went on a wonderful safari adventure curated and organised by Walter Kohrs of Safari Online. It could not have been any better than we experienced. From our time in Cape Town, to visiting Victoria Falls, all the way through Zimbabwe and finally wrapping up at the amazing Chobe Safari Lodge, all the locations chosen by Walter were amazing.

His attention to detail, willingness to fine-tune and excellent responsiveness (over a period of several months!) could not have been better. He took time to visit us personally upon our arrival in South Africa, with lovely gift-packs and shared a wealth of advice, recommendations and tips. I cannot recommend Safari Online (and Walter Kohrs in particular) any higher. Absolutely amazing.

Oisin (AU)
The trip was sensational and tailored to our needs. Simply fantastic!

The care by Walter was great from planning to leaving Johannesburg. The accommodations were perfectly chosen. If after a few days you thought it could not be better, you were told otherwise. It was an increase every day, with the 3 days safari in the Kruger, including overnight in tree house, the grand finale.
I would book a trip anytime again at Safari Online.

Exceptional service ensuring a wonderful holiday. Highly recommended

Attention to detail & service provided was first class, from our very first email to the last day of our trip. Walter went above and beyond to ensure that we were notified of any changes, even up to our last day with a change to our flight time, at short notice. The safari was so much more than expected, from the rustic to the exceptional, every camp was different in it’s own way and our highlights are hard to single out just one as each camp was great.

Cyndi and Dave (AU)
Outstanding experience!

We have booked at the Elephant Plains Lodge. We stayed there for a few nights and went on safaris. The lodge, the guide, the food and all the animals we have seen were fantastic. Really an outstanding experience. We can recommend Elephant Plains to everybody. Maybe you will not be as lucky as we were, becaucse we have seen the Big 5! But however you will not forget your stay at Elephant Plains.

Trip of a lifetime: Five countries, six camps, Vic Falls, Big Five plus more game

In June/July 2016 we undertook a trip to Southern Africa to fulfill a lifelong intention. We stayed at six camps, safari style, and had a great time. All of our expectations were met or even exceeded. For example, we never expected to see honey badgers or sitatunga, given the secretive nature of those species, but we did! All travel arrangements and connections worked smoothly, which is astonishing since we had several dozen transfers and meeting points; all of the connecting personnel were prompt, professional, and welcoming.

Michael (USA)
Absolutely Perfect

I was already last year in South Africa and Zambia organized by Safari Online. It was a absolutely gorgeous trip. Everything was perfect. This was the reason I booked this year in May and June an new trip to South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. I got everything I expected. It was a dream again. I know I´m coming back.

Bernard (DE)
Best experience ever!!

They provide us the most taylored and customized honeymoon possible! everything was much better than we expected. We loved the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere and everyone made us feeling so incredibly special and gave us a unique insight. Over our game drives we managed to see all the big five plus some!!

Salvatore (IT)
We had a wonderful holiday with no hitches, perfectly planned for us and so professional.

Though we live in Australia, Safari online made planning for our family holiday so easy. Walter understood our requirements and nothing was too much trouble. The holiday was everything we wanted it to be and so much more. Every camp was ideally suited for our family and we loved each day, every early morning and evening game drive. Thank you to Walter for his attention to detail and his friendly, professional and caring manner. It was a trip of a lifetime and one that we will talk about forever.
