Fodor's Review

You'll feel as if you've stepped back in time at this camp. The rooms are strategically clustered around the original 1920s homestead, which, with its colonial furniture, historic memorabilia, and wrap-around veranda, makes you feel like a family guest the moment you arrive. That intimate feeling continues when you sleep beneath a cluster of old photographs above your bed, slip into a leather armchair in front of a blazing log fire, or soak in your claw-foot bathtub in

the nostalgia-laden bathroom. Cocoon yourself in your room with its private veranda looking out onto green sweeping lawns, or mingle with the other guests in the homestead where you'll find it hard to believe that you're in the 21st century. You'll see game galore in Sabi Sands (the size of New Jersey), which has the highest density of leopards in the world. Kirkman's is ideal for families and family reunions.
