The Outpost Hotel, Kruger National Park

The Outpost lies in the Makuleke Contractual Park, a vast and remote 26,500 hectare wilderness area bordered to the north by the Limpopo River and Zimbabwe and to the east by Crooks Corner and Mozambique.

 The Outpost has been designed using simple, clean lines, combining elements of steel, concrete and open space. The main area of the lodge boasts vast views onto the openness of the pristine wilderness that is home to The Outpost. The modern bar is a focal point and defines the lounge and dining areas, which offer a cool relaxing alternative to the daybeds and chairs on the terrace overlooking the swimming pool. The lounge is flanked by a large book case with an extensive and varied selection of books.

The accommodation is twelve stand-alone open plan luxury suites all with views of the river and the bush below. The main building is connected to the suites along a Zimbabwean teak walkway. 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. The Makuleke is famous for its large herds of elephants and buffalo in the winter, a birder's paradise and home to the Big 5.
