Kirkman's Kamp was the first stop for our group on a tour of Southern Africa, coming from New Zealand. We had a wonderful time. The lodge as comfortable, the food was good, and the staff very friendly. Within the first 24 hours we had seen the "Big Five", and also giraffes and hippos. The advantage of being in a private game park such as Sabi Sand is that their are few other vehicles doing game drives, in this case only from one other lodge, Lion Sands. Also, the game drive Landrovers are not limited to roads, but could follow animals across rough ground. The opening of the new Skukuza airport in Kruger means that access is easier, as for us there was a two hour drive from Mpumalanga airport..
