Renowned for its historic atmosphere, family friendly nature and spectacular
setting in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, andBeyond Kirkman's Kamp has
received yet another boost with a facelift designed to retain its old world
character while providing modern-day luxury and comfort.

Carried out by Fox Browne Creative, the refurbishment enhanced the 1920
ambiance of the lodge, which is housed partly in a 1920s homestead that
dates back to a time when the renowned Big Five game reserve was no more
than a cattle farm. Acknowledging the lodge's rich history, the focus was on
providing an added touch of glamour, rather than altering its well-loved style.
The addition of wallpaper murals featuring a bushveld scene has provided a
focal point in the 12 guest cottages, while generous personal bars and brand
new outdoor seating provides more facilities for guests to relax in their
rooms. The biggest change has been reserved for the bathrooms, which have
been entirely re-done. With the old fashioned baths removed, the additional
space has allowed for extra large showers and double vanities. The finishes
are in keeping with the 1920 style, featuring embossed tiles, ribbed glass and
marble.

The lodge's guest areas have been refreshed with new furniture and lighting,
as well as wooden floors throughout, all of which provides a warmer and more
contemporary edge while retaining the classical feel. The lodge's dining room
has been entirely re-styled, creating an inviting and luxurious space that now
features a coffee bar and additional seating space for meals. While the
lodge's bar has always been a focal point for its special brand of hospitality,
this area has also received a brand new look, with an increased seating
capacity allowing guests to enjoy lively banter in the evenings while watching
the barman prepare their cocktails.

The lodge's guest areas were once the home of farmer turned conservationist
Harry Kirkman, who the property is named after, and photographs, painting
and other mementoes dating back to his time have helped to preserve the
sense of stepping back in history. Clever use of more modern furniture and
accents has elevated Kirkman's former home to a warm and luxurious, yet
authentic, frontier farmhouse feel.
andBeyond Kirkman's Kamp is situated in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, which
shares unfenced borders with the world renowned Kruger National Park. The
reserve is famed for its intimate wildlife encounters, particularly leopard
viewing. Game drives traverse an area of 10 500 hectares (26 000 acres) and
strict vehicle limits at sightings ensure the exclusivity of the game viewing
experiences. Rates at andBeyond Kirkman's Kamp start from ZAR 11 625 per
person sharing.
