About Kirkman's Kamp
Step back in time with a stay at Kirkman's Kamp, a beautiful old homestead with a green tin roof synonymous of this area.
This charming property welcomes you to experience yesteryear with all the modern comforts desired. Kirkmans Kamp was named in honour of W. Harry Kirkman, one of South Africa's foremost conservationists, who began his illustrious career as a ranger in 1927. With gracious staff the service is exceptional in keeping with the luxurious and historic surrounds of the property.
The suites at Kirkman's Kamp are beautifully appointed all with a wide verandah and an ensuite bathroom with a free standing bath designed with clean lines and mementos from the 1920's. Old-fashioned bedsteads combine with modern luxuries to create the perfect safari atmosphere.
The main area of the lodge hosts a beautiful lounge area and elegant dining area, with a large swimming pool looking out to the dry river bed. Massages are available at the lodge.
An ideal lodge for families and children of all ages are welcome; children under the age of 5 years old are not able to join in the game drive activities.
