The Outpost lies in the Makuleke Contractual Park, a vast and remote wilderness area bordered to the north by the Limpopo River and Zimbabwe and to the east by Crooks Corner and Mozambique. The Big 5 Makuleke Contractual Park measures some 26 500 hectares and is well known for its abundant wildlife. Apart from large herds of elephant and buffalo, guests will be able to see Nyala, an antelope which is not easily found in the more southern regions of the park, and over 350 recorded bird species.
The Outpost has been designed using simple, clean lines, combining elements of steel, concrete, and open space. The unashamedly contemporary design of The Outpost emphasises its beautiful surroundings but blends into and preserves the wilderness that is its home.
The lodge is built with a contemporary and tasteful design that is emphasized by the beauty of the surrounding bush. The use of clean symmetrical lines and the combination of unconventional elements such as steel and concrete create a luxurious yet unassuming look.
Game drives and outstanding walking safaris are undertaken in what is arguably one of the most scenically beautiful and diverse wilderness areas in the Kruger National Park.
LOCATION Makuleke Contractual Park, Northern Kruger National Park, Limpopo Province in South Africa.
ACCOMMODATION There are 12 stand-alone open plan en-suite Luxury Spaces resting on a hill overlooking the Luvuvhu River.
The open feel of the rooms extends into a comfortable lounge and outdoor terrace with a double daybed. The award-winning bathroom (which can be screened off for privacy) with a stone bath and open shower boasts views extending as far as Mozambique.
Space 12 is the Honeymoon Space that is at the highest point of the Lodge. Being high up, the space is more private, and the views are truly sensational.
DINING AND BARS The Outpost offers a variety of places to dine. Breakfast and lunch are served undercover in the dining area in the main building with views of the Luvuvhu River Valley. Lunch may be served as a picnic out on safari (requested on arrival or upon reservation), under Baobabs or on the river banks. Dinner is enjoyed either in the enclosed courtyard under the stars or on the deck next to the pool.
The large wine cellar, filled with outstanding South African wines, including some amazing Sauvignon Blanc produced by the Lodge owner, is separated from the main dining area by a glass partition.
