This adventure starts at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and ends at Cape Town
Fly with SA Airlink from OR Tambo International Airport to Skukuza Airport. On arrival at the Airport,
you will be met by a member of our &Beyond team and transferred to &Beyond Kirkman’s Kamp.
More than 65 000ha’s make up the Sabi Sand Game Reserve which borders the Kruger National Park.
Made up of a number of private game lodges – each one differing in atmosphere – a visit to the area
guarantees a never-to-be-forgotten experience of the African Bush. With no fences between the farms
(or for that matter between them and the Kruger Park), animals wander across vast stretches of
grazing land as they did years and years ago. With one of the richest game populations in the country,
the chances of seeing the Big 5 (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) are excellent. The Reserve
is also home to a host of other animals – but be warned: chances are, one visit to the area, will
probably lead to many more!
Spend three nights at &Beyond Kirkman’s Kamp on Sabi Sand Game Reserve in a suite with ensuite
bathroom. Your stay includes three meals daily, soft drinks, house wines, soft drinks, local brand
spirits and beers, teas and coffee, scheduled safari activities, refreshments on game drives, nature
walks (one hour) accompanied by experienced, armed trackers and laundry. A wide range of
fascinating children’s activities is offered at Kirkman’s Kamp.
With its lush spreading lawns and down-to-earth grace, this camp is the ideal destination for a family
safari in South Africa.
Day 2 & 3
Explore the bush on twice-daily game drives that venture out in search of the Big Five, as well as a
host of other fascinating creatures. The Sabi Sand is particularly well known for sightings of the
normally elusive leopard, so make sure to keep an eye out for this graceful and elegant cat. The
early morning game drives leaves shortly after dawn, with the mysteries of the bush lying open
before you. Your experienced ranger and tracker team will discuss what you hope to see prior to
the drive and will do their best to find all your favourite animals for you.
After breakfast there is the option to set off on a bush walk and explore the finer details of your
surroundings, from animal tracks to plants, insects and birds. Alternatively guests can just seat
back and enjoy the historic atmosphere of authentic 1920s Transvaal homestead
Another game drive sets off in the late afternoon, continuing after dark in search of a fascinating
glimpse into the nocturnal lives of Africa’s predators.
Kids can take part in &Beyond’s WILDchild programme designed for kids which is filled with fun,
interactive activities that offer opportunities to learn and discover new experiences and cultures.

kitchen and more.

With Table Mountain – one of the most spiritual places on earth – at its heart and two oceans at its
feet, the city of Cape Town, strategically situated at the south-western tip of Africa, has been famed
for centuries as the Tavern of the Seas. Vibrant, cosmopolitan and an eclectic mix of old and new,
this laid-back city is as much at home with its 17th century castle – whose cannons have never been
fired in anger – as it is with its sleek skyscrapers and trendy malls. Home to South Africa’s first
Mosque, oldest wine farm, a 350 year-old garden and timelessly beautiful beaches, it’s no surprise the
legendary Flying Dutchman and his spectral ship have spent eternity sailing the city’s shores.

offering climbs, descents, technical sections and flat out straights.
