Unbelievable setting with beautifully appointed rooms with the ability to open the front and sides. Fantastic food and drinks, very friendly and efficient staff. Game drives in 28 000 hectares where you hardly see another vehicle. The most magnificent scenery and trees. Definately worth a trip.

We had 2 lovely nights at The Outpost (Pafuri region). The camp was lovely and the rooms (spaces as they call them) were modern with exquisite views over the valley and river. The rooms all had retractable blinds which allowed 270 degree views and a real feeling out being out there! Superb. Northern Kruger does not have as much game...

We were lucky enough to draw Richard Evans as our guide: he communicated his wide knowledge of the place and his passion for the animals. It was wonderful to be able to lift the walls and be hanging in space under the stars. The staff was lovely and accommodating. And the animals!! Richard took us to the great gray green...

So very different to any of the other lodges and safaris that we have been on. The diverse geography one big difference. The fact that the animals are not used to people another. Food very interesting and creative and delicious

The Outpost is an outstanding location with an excellent service. Exzellent meals beginning with a brunch after a Game Drive will be finalized by an unexpected dinner and a very good choice of vines and sparkling vines.

An amazing location with breath-taking, modern rooms. We loved the solitude and landscape. The food was slightly unexciting (particularly afternoon tea), but this is a minor criticism in the general fantastic experience we had. We will definitely be back

Wonderful time at the Outpost. Safari has become very commercialized. The Outpost offers a genuine safari experience with deluxe accommodations, high quality food, and well informed guides in an unparalleled natural setting.
