The Outpost lies in a vast wilderness area in the northernmost part of Kruger National Park. This region, called the Makuleke Region, is bordered to the north by the Limpopo River and Zimbabwe and to the east by Crooks Corner and Mozambique.
Italian born architect Enrico Daffonchio designed The Outpost. Using simple, clean lines and combining elements of steel, concrete and open space, the unashamedly contemporary design of The Outpost emphasizes its beautiful surrounds but blends and preserves the wilderness that is its home.
The Outpost comprises one large main building and twelve stand-alone living spaces set on the side of a hill overlooking the Luvuvhu River, all connected by a half kilometer long walkway made of Zimbabwean teak. The Main Building and Spaces are cooled effectively by an environmentally friendly evaporative cooling system.
On arrival guests are welcomed into the Main Building and are treated to the openness and extensive views that embody The Outpost. The modern bar is a focal point and defines the lounge and dining areas. The lounge is flanked by a large book case with an extensive and varied selection of books. This area leads off to the swimming pool deck with large lap pool.
The contemporary design of each Space makes use of concrete and steel with retractable canvas sliders which open to afford a 180 degree view of the Luvuvhu River valley. The living area of each Space comprises an outdoor terrace with daybed, indoor lounge and bedroom with king size bed under mosquito netting. The canvas walls of the en-suite bathroom with award winning bath and shower may be opened to afford a full view of the valley below or closed for privacy at the guest requires. Goose down duvets add a touch of luxury to your comfort.
