The Outpost is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. The staff is friendly and courteous. My sister was injured at the time and they drove to another lodge to pick up a wheelchair for her stay. The guides for the game drives were extremely knowledgeable and took the time to answer questions and seek out each...

We spent 4 days at this magical spot. Everything is incredible: the food, the service, the accommodation and the setting!! We loved our game drives and especially our game walk. We had a private dinner under the stars which one of the best experiences I have ever had. I definitely recommend this spot for a unique and special bush experience!

Stayed for 3 nights and loved every second spent here. Game drives - extremely comfortable vehicles and such varied landscapes on morning and evening drives. Our guide, Sam, was incredible - cannot praise him enough. His knowledge of the local bird life is beyond belief - he can identify any bird from just a glimpse or by hearing their call....

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.
