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 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-

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-
