All Things Big and Small...

This region measures some 26 500 hectares and is home to large herds of elephant and buffalo. The mountainous terrain is attractive to leopard and the region has resident prides of lion. Rhino were recently reintroduced and guests visiting The Outpost are likely to see various fauna and flora endemic to this remote corner of the Kruger National Park. The diverse terrain of the region includes mopane woodlands, fever tree forests, acacia thickets and some of the largest and oldest baobab trees.


Guests will be taken on game drives in the early morning and again in the late afternoon which may extend into the early evening. Game drives are conducted by qualified and experienced guides in open 4x4 safari vehicles. The drives are not restricted to public roads in Kruger National Park and mostly make use of tracks formerly reserved for the use of Park officials.


Guests who would like to experience the bush on foot may do so after breakfast as an alternative to a game drive. These walks are exhilarating and informative... the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with the wonders of nature, and a great way to stretch your legs and breath the fresh bush air. On request subject to availability.


Should you wish to set your own pace on your safari, booking a private vehicle does just this for you. The day is yours... you have your guide and a vehicle at your disposal...

This is the perfect opportunity to really explore the Park. You can choose to spend the entire day on a game drive, stopping when and where you want.

You can relax and enjoy a picnic in the fever tree forest, under a baobab, on the riverbank... as a matter of fact, anywhere you wish. You could spend half the day driving and the other half walking, or even the whole day experiencing this magnificent bush on foot. Explore parts of the region not accessible to vehicles, including the spectacular Lanner Gorge. This is certainly the ultimate for bird spotting and great for avid photographers.

Note: Should you wish to do walking on your private safari you will need to pre-arrange this so we have the correct guide available for you.

It was such a trilling experience
to walk for hours without the
rover and hear and feel nature...

...the topography is stunning,
feel nature...
the fever trees, the baobab
trees, the gorge.

Experiencing the landscape,
flora and fauna on foot is an
absolute must – we’ve done
walking safaris elsewhere,
but they just didn’t compare
with the beauty of the area
surrounding The Outpost.
