On your fourth day, you’ll leave the Victoria & Alfred Hotel and return to Cape Town’s international airport via private road transfer. You’ll board a flight bound for Skukuza Airport, and once you’ve landed you’ll have another private road transfer to Kirkman’s Kamp. This camp is always popular with travellers in favour of the colonial style. Its colonial lodge contains a 1920s-era lounge, library, dining room, and bar with a hunting theme. There’s a wide deck at the back of the building, where you can relax and look out for passing wildlife, as well as a very welcoming rim-flow swimming pool. You’ll stay in one of the camp’s 18 cottages. Each offers a spacious bedroom, en-suite full bathroom, and two verandas with amazing views. From this comfortable base, you can head out and explore the Sabi Sands on expertly guided game drives and walks. The reserve is home to all Big Five – lion, rhino, leopard, elephant, and buffalo – as well as numerous smaller predators and herbivores, and ample birdlife. Local community visits and specialist star photography lessons are also available.

Board basis and activities:
All-inclusive accommodation, featuring all meals, a selection of alcoholic and soft drinks, twice-daily game drives, once-daily bush walk, and transfers between the hotel and Skukuza Airport.

On the final day of your trip, you’ll leave Kirkman’s Kamp and return to Skukuza Airport via private road transfer. From here, you’ll fly to Johannesburg’s O. R. Tambo International Airport, arriving in good time for your flight/s home.
