An Unforgettable Safari Kamp Experience At Kirkman's And The Malamala Game Reserve
&Beyond Kirkman's Kamp, located within the MalaMala Private Game Reserve, is one of the few remaining classical colonial lodges found in South Africa. This historic Kamp dates back to the early 1920s and celebrates the atmosphere of a landmark South African homestead.
Today, Kirkman's continues to offer an authentic safari experience, complete with all the modern amenities and comforts that travellers have come to expect.
You are guaranteed a game viewing experience second to none as there is no better wildlife area anywhere within the greater Kruger National Park region than that of MalaMala.
The Kirkman's sits on a sweeping bend of the Sabi River, offering stunning views and unparalleled wildlife watching opportunities.
Whether you're looking to explore the African bush on game drives, take a dip in the swimming pool, or simply relax in your luxurious suite, Kirkman's is the perfect place to create memories that will last a lifetime.
The Kamp is within a short game drive of Skukuza Airport.
MalaMala Private Game Reserve (Big Five) is one of the most popular game reserves in Africa, and for good reason. The 33,000-acre reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife, including the Big 5: lions, elephants, Cape buffalo, leopard sightings, and rhinoceroses.
Visitors can enjoy exciting African safari game viewing while staying at Kirkman's or any one of the other lodges located within the reserve.
MalaMala is also famous for its close proximity to the Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. The reserve shares an unfenced 19km border with the Kruger, and its closest neighbour, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, is just a short drive away.
This proximity to two of Africa's most famous game reserves means that MalaMala is the perfect place to see a wide variety of wildlife. In fact, it is not uncommon for guests to see the Big 5 during their stay at the reserve.
