About The Outpost

Above the banks of the majestic Luvuvhu River, in a remote and northern area of South Africa’s world-famous Kruger National Park, lies the luxurious Outpost lodge. Relax and recharge while surrounded by nature in one of 12 luxury suites, which are inter-connected via a Zimbabwean teak walkway and all converge at a central lodge area. The contemporary architecture of the lodge is balanced by the rugged and untouched beauty of the surrounding plains and the tranquility of its low-impact design elements.

The Makulele region’s vast and scenic beauty makes The Outpost the perfect place to celebrate an intimate wedding, special anniversary, honeymoon, or even an intimate corporate team-building event. The Outpost offers a range of activities including game drives, bush walks, in-room spa treatments, bird watching, and both indoor and outdoor dining experiences. Day trips to the nearby Makuleke Village, Thulamela archaeological site, and Crooks Corner also provide guests with information about the area's rich cultural and historical heritage.

The Outpost Setting

Perched on a hillside with views across the expansive wilderness of northern Kruger, and surrounded by a fever tree forest, the Outpost falls within the Makuleke region concession area which extends northwards to the Limpopo River and borders Mozambique and Zimbabwe.

Teaming with biodiversity, this special conservation area near Kruger’s Pafuri Gate is known for some of the best wildlife viewing in South Africa. Home to the Big 5 and some of the oldest and most spectacular giant baobab trees, the area also boasts over 350 bird species including the Scarlet-chested Sunbird, the elusive Pel’s Fishing Owl and Scops Owl, making it a haven for all nature lovers.

  • Birding Break

    We spent a couple of days at The Outpost for a birding break. Lovely location. The rooms are set out over a valley with big views. Staff, service and facilities were excellent, especially our guide, Sam, who was extremely knowledgeable about the birds (and other wildlife) in the area . review

The Outpost is the result of a unique cooperation between private investors and the local community and is the first lodge built in this big region.
