South Africa

The Outpost

PLAN MY TRIP

Perched on a hill overlooking the Luvuvhu River, The Outpost lies on the very edge of the iconic Kruger National Park.

Twelve stand-alone suites boast a clean-lined, contemporary style due to concrete, steel, and state-of-the-art retractable screens. These screens open to reveal stunning 180-degree views of the valley and river below. A private terrace invites guests to relax on the daybed or in the outdoor stone bathtub. Other luxury amenities include a spacious lounge and a comfortable king-sized bed dressed in a goose-down duvet and draped with white mosquito netting. The award-winning en suite bathrooms feature stone baths and open showers boasting views extending as far as Mozambique. Other amenities include a Nespresso maker, mini-bar, bathrobes, umbrella, safe, and hair dryer.

The Outpost lies in the Makuleke Contractual Park comprising 100 square miles of vast and remote wilderness bordered to the north by the Limpopo River and Zimbabwe and to the east by Crooks Corner and Mozambique. Lush vegetation, beautiful mountains, flowing rivers, savanna grassland, and more combine with rich concentrations of wildlife to provide incredible surprises at every turn. In winter, the region is a favorite grazing ground for elephant herds from Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and elsewhere in Kruger. Hippopotamus and crocodile populations flourish at nearby Crooks Corner, where the Limpopo and Luvuvhu Rivers merge. Leopard, rhino, buffalo, lion, impala, eland, Sharpe’s grysbok, and over 350 bird species contribute to the area’s impressive and ever-changing panorama of wildlife.

Morning and afternoon game drives are conducted by expert trackers and guides in open 4×4 vehicles and include tea, coffee, and snacks in the morning and drinks and snacks in the afternoon. For a more intimate examination of the area, a bush walk with an expert guide takes a careful look at the flora and fauna missed from the vehicles. Private safaris are available too. For a cultural tour, there are trips to the local Makuleke Village to learn about their rich history and culture. There are also history tours to Crooks Corner where men sought to evade the law in a settlement built on the border of three countries.

Connected by a 500-meter Zimbabwean teak walkway, The Outpost’s lodge and suites are carefully situated on a hill overlooking the Luvuvhu River. Simple, modern style melds seamlessly into the surrounding landscape while professional staff provides the ultimate in luxury service. Elements of concrete and steel are warmed by colorful pillows and ottomans dressed in Nguni cowhides. Guests can relax in the spacious lounge area, dining area, on the terrace, or around the pool.
