Formerly known as

Overview

Location: South Africa-->Kruger National Park-->Exeter Private Game Reserve
Accommodation Type: Lodge

Good For: Solo, Couple/Romantic, Family |

The 65 000 hectare Exeter Private Game Reserve hugs the western bank of the Sand River, close to the Kruger National Park border. World renowned, and fashioned around an experience of "the Africa of old", this reserve maintains high standards of comfort and luxury. It is known internationally for its diversity of wildlife - from Big Five sightings to endangered wild dog.

With its luxurious overtones and colonial air, Kirkman's Kamp creates an atmosphere where guests can surround themselves in the style and accommodation of an era long since past. Constructed in the early 1920’s, Kirkmans Kamp retains a sense of homestead-era hospitality and authentic wildlife adventure found in very few places today.

Accommodation

Accommodation at Kirkman's Kamp is provided in a series of eighteen guest cottages, all with amazing riverside and bush views from private verandas, and en-suite bathrooms with ball-and-claw baths and separate showers.

Wildlife

Kirkman's Kamp boasts ubiquitous clusters of the Big 5, as well as various other animals, all of which are have become accustomed to groups of tourists - making game viewing a pleasure. Grey duiker, kudu, bushbuck impala, common waterbuck, and nyala, elephant, white rhino, buffalo, and giraffe are all also common to the area.

There are also 303 bird species native to this area, and are a regular snapshot delight - especially on guided walking tours of the area.

Reviews


The team were great for us, especially after we provided some negative feedback after our first day. value for money is hard to achieve after about $250 pp per night. the bed was great, the food was good and the property is fabulously decorated. What makes it great is the reinvestment into wildlife conservation and better living standards for local Africans, and long term, reliable, humane jobs for the staff. Keep up the good work.
