The Out Post is a destination that every seasoned traveler should experience at least once. The food, the accommodation, the room and the hospitality were exceptional. There is unfortunately not much game in the northern part of the Kruger national park, but the game drives are very interesting and memorable. We are busy planning our next adventure at the Out...

The Outpost offers stunning accomodation & game drives/walks, world's most friendly staff members and an amazing opportunity to enjoy every little wonder of nature. Special thanx to Garry Bruce for his calm and safety-driven effort in making the game walk by far the most perfect and enjoyable experience i've had in South Africa. I would recommend everyone to go on...

A dramatic setting and unique design provide the base for your Northern Kruger Safari ... whilst the region is not as well known as it's southern counterparts, for game viewing & its not the easiest lodge to reach (charter flight or long drive) - it's absolutely worth the visit. I'd recommend The Outpost as a destination to truly escape to...

You will love it. This is THE place to be for couples. Room, staff, food and hospitality are amazing!!! And the view to look over the Luvuvhu River in your room is stunning. You also see the sunrise from there.

Not a place to stay for a first safari in the green season, bush too dense. A great challenge if you are a returning visitor to find the game & not worried about seeing the big five. Wonderful for birds too.

We stayed here in February. From our arrival to our departure we were treated like VIP's by Sven and his staff. They do anything requested with a smile and go out of their way to make your stay special. The room or "space" as they call it are exceptional. They are perched on the side of a hill overlooking the...

My wife and I have been wanting to visit the Outpost for a long while and it truly did not disappoint. We stayed in Space 12 for the 16th and 17th of February 2017 – just in time to see nature unleash the tropical storm Dineo. Our highlights included: • Our guide Samuel who is unbelievably knowledgeable about birds, and...

This is a spectacular lodge, do not expect to see huge game numbers, just enjoy the unique experience. The Spaces are so unusual and a pleasure to spend time in your own Space.I have been before, and will go again!!

We had the experience of a lifetime ..... We went to The Outpost (18/19/20th February 2017) knowing that this region of the Kruger Park is famous for birding not the big five. Our stay was for 3 nights which we strongly recommended based on the time one requires on each game drive and the distances that one travels. We have...

I would happily have given the Outpost a five star rating (stupendous views from every room, friendly staff, five-star meals, a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide in the form of Warren) but for the diabolical road leading to the resort which cost me thousands of dollars of repairs to my admittedly low clearance, two-wheel drive Jaguar XFR. I finally abandoned the...
