The Outpost lies in a vast wilderness area in the northernmost part of Kruger National Park. This region, called the Makuleke Region, is bordered to the north by the Limpopo River and Zimbabwe, and to the east by Crooks Corner and Mozambique.
The Outpost comprises one large main building and twelve stand-alone living spaces set on the side of a hill overlooking the Luvuvhu River, all connected by a half kilometre long walkway made of Zimbabwean teak. Each unit has retractable canvas sliders which open to afford a 180 degree view of the Luvuvhu River valley. The living area of each unit comprises an outdoor terrace with daybed, indoor lounge and bedroom with king-size bed under mosquito netting, as well as an en suite bathroom with bath and shower.
The region is home to large herds of elephant and buffalo and the mountainous terrain is attractive to leopard and has resident prides of lion. Rhino were recently reintroduced and guests visiting The Outpost are likely to see various fauna and flora endemic to this remote area.
Guests can enjoy game excursions in the early morning and late afternoon which may extend into the early evening. Game drives are conducted by qualified and experienced guides in open-air 4x4 vehicles. Game drives are not restricted to public roads in Kruger National Park and mostly make use of tracks formerly reserved for the use of Park officials. Bush walks can be arranged, however at least two weeks’ notice is required prior to arrival.
