The Outpost luxury accommodation bath with view
 
The Outpost lies in the Makuleke Contractual Park, a vast and remote wilderness area bordered to the north by the Limpopo River and Zimbabwe and to the east by Crooks Corner and Mozambique.
 
The wildest and most remote part of the Kruger National Park - One of the few true wilderness areas left in South Africa, The Makuleke Contractual Park (Pafuri) is steeped in history and boasts vegetation so different to anything else within Kruger that one might be forgiven for thinking they were in central Africa!
 
Scenery ranges from the beautiful, quietly-flowing Levuvhu River teeming with hippos and crocodiles, shaded by Nyala trees and fever tree forests, to the grand Lanner Gorge, palm-fringed wetlands and rocky outcrops with thousand-year-old baobab trees.
 
The area is a favourite winter grazing ground for elephant from Mozambique, Zimbabwe and elsewhere in Kruger. Leopard love the thick bush environment and prey on the nyala and impala that feed close to the river. There is a large population of hippos and crocs at the confluence of the Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers at Crooks’ Corner. Among the more unusual sightings in the Makuleke are the eland and Sharpe’s grysbok. The birding in the whole area is exceptional, with specialities being the Pel’s fishing-owl, black-throated wattle-eyed, orange-winged pytilia, African crowned eagle and racket-tailed roller.
 
Almost 80% of the Kruger Park’s diversity found here.
 
The Big 5 Makuleke Contractual Park measures some 26 500 hectares and is well known for its abundant wildlife including less common species not evident in the southern and central regions of the park. Apart from large herds of elephant and buffalo, guests will be able to see Nyala, an antelope which is not easily found in the more southern regions of the park, and over 350 recorded bird species. The diverse terrain of the region includes Mopane Woodlands, Fever Tree forests, Acacia thickets as well as some of the largest and oldest Baobab specimens.
 
The Outpost has been designed using simple, clean lines, combining elements of steel, concrete and open space. The unashamedly contemporary design of The Outpost emphasises its beautiful surroundings but blends into, and preserves the wilderness that is its home.
Accommodation consists of 12 unique and modern stand-alone open plan en-suite Luxury Suites offering spectacular panoramic views of the river and bush below. Game drives and outstanding walking safaris are undertaken in what is arguably one of the most scenically beautiful and diverse wilderness areas in the Kruger National Park.
 
Visit Thulamela:
The region's rich historical and cultural heritage can be explored by guided visits to Crooks Corner and the Thulamela archaeological site overlooking the Luvuvhu River. Artefacts dating from 1460 to 1640 have been found tying them to the last phase of the Zimbabwe culture. In the late 19th century, the historic Ivory Route passed alongside the Luvuvhu River to Crooks corner at the confluence of the Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers and the border of Mozambique, Zimbabwe and South Africa. A visit to Thulamela is a half day optional excursion.

Visit Makuleke Village:

The Outpost celebrates its relationship with the Makuleke Community. The creation of the lodge is inextricably linked to the history of the Makuleke people, their forced removal from the region under the Apartheid laws of the old South African government and the subsequent return of title to the Makuleke people. The history of the Makuleke people is best explored by a visit to the Makuleke Village in the capable hands of a Makuleke guide. A visit to the Makuleke Village is a full day optional excursion.
