The Outpost -
The Outpost situated in the Northern
part of the Kruger Park offers game reserve accommodation with a
difference. Instead of the Bush Africa feel it has been designed by acclaimed
Italian born architect Enrico Daffonchio.
Using simple, clean lines and
combining elements of steel and canvas the unashamedly contemporary design of
The Outpost emphasizes its beautiful surrounds but blends and preserves the
wilderness that is its home.
Situated in the Makuleke Region in the
northernmost part of Kruger National Park, The Outpost rests high on a hill
overlooking the flood plains of the Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers. This region,
formerly known as the Pafuri region, is in the northernmost part of Kruger
National Park and is bordered to the north by the Limpopo and Zimbabwe and to
the East by Crooks Corner and Zimbabwe.
The Outpost -
Guests are accommodated at the
Outpost in 12
stand-alone en suite rooms that are placed alongside a walkway half way
up a hill overlooking the Luvuvhu River. The rooms are essentially of
modern design with foldaway glass sides and frontage offering 180-degree
views of the Luvuvhu River Valley. The open feel of the rooms is
extended into the bathroom where guests are afforded a view which
extends as far as Mozambique.
The Outpost - Food
Michelin Chef Robert Bowman is in charge
of the kitchen at The Outpost. Notwithstanding its remote location, The
Outpost strives to provide excellent cuisine. The style of food reflects its
African surroundings. Care is taken to source the best produce whether
available locally or whether it is flown in fresh from Johannesburg.
