Commanding magnificent views of the Luvuvhu River and landscape beyond from its perch halfway up an imposing hill, The Outpost is found in one of the most remote parts of the Kruger National Park. This is a superb safari add-on for those en route to Mozambique and Zimbabwe – not far from their borders – and in search of a remote and tranquil place to unwind.
Don’t be surprised to feel like you have the bush all to yourself in this secluded corner of Kruger. Look out for the Big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo – and a host of other wildlife including 500 different bird species and a plethora of plains game. Kruger’s reputation as South Africa’s flagship safari destination is well deserved.
For such a remote corner of the park, The Outpost takes great pride in its offering of contemporary African luxury. Its modern bar is the focal point of the main lodge, leading out to a large swimming pool and deck. Linked by Zambian teak, the 12 stand-alone rooms offer untold luxury – from its magnificent views, outdoor terrace and indoor lounge, to its oval bath and air-conditioning.
