After researching many of the lodges in Sabi Sands endlessly, we finally decided upon Kirkman's for our trip ( 2 families travelling together). We could not have picked a better lodge for our first safari experience! It is a warm, inviting, beautiful and comfortable lodge with a slightly British feel and as upscale as any 4 or 5 star property without feeling over the top and inappropriate in the bush. To say the staff are warm, helpful and welcoming is also an understatement. We felt spoiled every moment we were there. Thomas, our steward saw to our every need, including a wonderful breakfast in the bush - and the chef provided the most amazing gluten free treats for one of our party. Every meal had new things for her that had the rest of us almost jealous. Our guide & tracker Jason & Jerry were amazing - everyday was a new adventure ( 5 leopard sightings, 2 kills, 2 lions sightings, lion mating, wild dog pups, obviously the Big 5 w/in 24 hours,
leopard cubs, baby rhinos, baby elephants - it was something new every drive) They were informative, fun to be with, stayed out late on drives with us, celebrated at sundowners and in the evening, we miss them still. Cannot think of one thing this property is missing.
