Stop, breathe, and take it all in… get out of the fast lane, even if just for a few days at The Outpost Lodge. The Outpost offers an authentic experience of the African bush, with breathtaking views from the luxury of your own private space; the largest fever tree forest in the world; spectacular sunsets and unforgettable wildlife encounters. These are our seven must-have experiences at The Outpost Lodge in the far north of the Kruger National Park.
1. WATCH THE SUNRISE FROM YOUR BED
Wake up to nature’s alarm call of twittering birds and begin your day by watching the sunrise over the Luvuvhu River from the privacy of your own luxury space. Enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee from your bed as you witness daybreak in all its glory.
2. EXPLORE ON FOOT WITH A WALKING SAFARI
While any safari in South Africa is a magical experience, if you truly want to experience the bushveld and get an unparalleled perspective, go on foot. The Outpost Lodge is famous for its specialist walking safaris, which allow you to experience the magnificent surroundings in a truly unique way.
3. EXPERIENCE THE EDEN OF KRUGER IN REAL LIFE
The Outpost Lodge rests high on a hill overlooking the Luvuvhu River in the wildest and most remote part of the Kruger National Park. Our 24 000 hectare concession boasts as much as 80% of Kruger National Park’s total biodiversity, occurring in an area only slightly more than 2% of its total size.
4. ENJOY A MASSAGE IN YOUR ROOM
There are plenty of ways to revive your body and mind at The Outpost Lodge. For complete relaxation, we have a range of massage offerings including full body and specialised foot treatments – just what’s needed after a day of exploring.
5. PICNIC IN THE FEVER TREE FOREST
Enjoy a delicious picnic-style lunch under the gold-tinted shade of the largest fever tree forest in the world. The fever tree forest is often described as one of the most enchanted areas of the Kruger National Park with thousands of yellowish-green fever trees extending as if without end into the distance.
6. SOAK IN A BUBBLE BATH AT TWILIGHT
Soak up the wonders of the wilderness from the comfort of a lavish bubble bath in your lofty, private perch above the bush. All of our spaces have been cleverly designed and fitted with retractable, remote-controlled screens – offering uninterrupted, panoramic views.
7. SIP ON SUNDOWNERS IN THE SETTING OF A LIFETIME
The grand finale of any day in the bush is a magnificent African sunset and The Outpost Lodge boasts several outstanding sundowner locations – from Lanner Gorge to the Banyini Pan and more. We’ll find you the ideal spot to sip on an ice cold G&T, watch the sun sink behind the horizon and reminisce about the day.
