The Wildest and Most Remote Part of the Kruger National Park is called The Outpost.
The Outpost has been designed using simple, clean lines, combining elements of steel, concrete and open space. The unashamedly contemporary design of The Outpost emphasizes its beautiful surroundings but blends into, and preserves the wilderness that is its home.
Accommodation consists of 12 unique and modern stand-alone open plan en-suite Luxury Spaces offering spectacular panoramic views of the river and bush below. 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 Outpost accommodates 24 guests in 12 stand-alone open plan en-suite Luxury Spaces resting on a hill overlooking the Luvuvhu River. The Spaces are connected to each other and the central Lodge area by a 500m Zimbabwean teak walkway.
These contemporary Luxury Spaces have been cleverly designed, making full use of space, concrete and steel with state-of the art retractable screens offering 180-degrees of uninterrupted views of the Luvuvhu River Valley.
The open feel of the room extends into a comfortable lounge and an award-winning bathroom (which can be screened off for privacy) with a stone bath and open shower boasting views extending as far as Mozambique. The outdoor terrace with daybed offers full views of the surrounding bushveld, and is the perfect spot to while away the time soaking in this natural wonder.
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 creates a luxurious yet unassuming look. Distinctive touches include Nguni cowhides on the ottomans and colourful pillows.
On arrival guests are welcomed into the main building and are treated to the openness and extensive views that embody 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 main building is connected to 12 stand-alone Luxury Spaces along a Zimbabwean teak walkway.
This region measures some 26 500 hectares and is home to large herds of elephant and buffalo. The mountainous terrain is attractive to leopard and the region 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 corner of the Kruger National Park. The diverse terrain of the region includes mopane woodlands, fever tree forests, acacia thickets and some of the largest and oldest baobab trees.
Guests will be taken on game drives in the early morning and again in the late afternoon which may extend into the early evening. Game drives are conducted by qualified and experienced guides in open 4×4 safari vehicles. The 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.
Guests who would like to experience the bush on foot may do so after breakfast as an alternative to a game drive. These walks are exhilarating and informative… the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with the wonders of nature, and a great way to stretch your legs and breath the fresh bush air. On request subject to availability.
