wild luxury lodging
I slowly open my eyes. No, this can’t be real. I must still be dreaming a sweat, pleasant dream. Let me just listen instead of look. I hear a river, wind, leaves, trees and animals. Plenty of wild animals. My skin is caressed by a breath of wind. The scent of Africa entering my nose. This dream, it’s so vivid. So unreal it must be true. Slowly I open my eyes again. The milky way illuminates the room. An open room, hovering over baobabs and elephants. This is no dream. This is The Outpost.
Some might consider sleeping at The Outpost Lodge in Kruger National Park a waste of time. Sleeping while you can try to spot elephants and lions from your bed, count infinite stars and planets or listen to the call of nature. Others might not be able to fall asleep, eager as they are to wake up in an open space directly in touch with the African wilderness. Most of us though, will fall asleep with a big smile on our faces after yet another day of wild luxury lodging.
A bed at The Outpost does not come cheap. But every cent is an investment in a future full of warm and special memories. Memories of the design, of the architecture, of this secluded part of Kruger near Mozambique and Zimbabwe, memories of nature, friendliness, hospitality and warmth. Unforgettable memories. Priceless memories.
At The Outpost you stay in one of 9 Italian design ‘Spaces’ made of concrete, wood and steel. The Spaces are reached by a kilometer long boardwalk. Each Space hangs onto a cliff and looks out over a river valley dotted with mighty baobabs and abundant wildlife. The local Makuleke staff goes out of their way to make your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible.
Three times a day you are treated to fresh local gourmet meals. Twice a day your personal guide takes you on a safari in this non-touristic corner of the Kruger. You will be moved by sun rises and sun sets, wash off the rich African red soil in either the swimming pool or by taking a bath while enjoying one of the most beautiful views from a bathroom you can imagine.
If you ever wondered if dreams come true, The Outpost Lodge is the answer.
