SABI SAND PRIVATE GAME
The moment you walk into the main building at Kirkmanís
Kamp youíll think youíve been transported back in time. The fact that the main
lawn has warthog grazing on it instead of a neatly dressed party playing croquet
does nothing to dispel this illusion; in fact, it all adds to the ambiance of
this 1920s South African homestead.
Impeccable and gracious service completes the old world atmosphere, as the
spirit of safari comes alive at this evocative camp, set in one of the most
renowned wildlife regions in the world.
Each of the 18 guest cottages boasts spectacular views of the unspoiled
wilderness surrounding the Sand River.
Slip into the leisurely pace of yesteryear at the
charming and historic Kirkmanís Kamp. Located high on a ridge, the camp
overlooks the Sand River like a stylish matriarch gazing down upon the
landscape. The green tin roof and manicured grounds carve out a soft and
cultured niche in the wild and tumbling bush. Enjoy the ritual of afternoon tea
served on the spacious veranda or rolling lawn, perhaps in the company of a wild
but friendly visitor or two.
While gracious style abounds at Kirkmanís, the
wilderness beyond is never forgotten. Wander through the spacious guest areas
and admire the many mementos of a time gone by. Clean lines and authentic
furniture transport you to the 1920s, while sheer creature comfort is never
compromised. Indulge in private time in the fascinating library or while away a
few hours in front of the roaring fireplace in the guest sitting room. Leisure
hours can be spent by the pool admiring the bush landscape and enjoying a
special wildlife sighting in the river valley.
Private verandas attached to each cottage offer a
secluded spot to drink in the breathtaking views. Old-fashioned bedsteads
combine seamlessly with modern comfort and souvenirs of bygone years to create a
nostalgic safari atmosphere. Generous claw-foot bathtubs complete the picture,
while stand-alone showers in each room provide an up-to-date touch.
