Join us on a Wilderness Walking Safari to Explore this
Spectacular Big 5 Country – Something Unique & Exhilerating.

The Outpost, overlooking the Luvuvhu River in the Makuleke Contractual Park in the northern Kruger National Park, offers walking safaris/trails in what is arguably one of the most scenically beautiful and diverse wilderness areas in the Kruger National Park.

The Outpost trails are designed to capture the magic of this wilderness. Trails are conducted over 3 nights (or longer if required) with guests based at The Outpost

With a group size of a maximum of 4 guests on the trails, you will receive personal attention enhancing your wilderness experience. The trails will depart from The Outpost or from various locations within the region that are accessed by an open game-viewing vehicle, and are led by a highly qualified and knowledgeable guide.

The region is home to a wide variety of animals including the larger and potentially dangerous species. The possibility of encountering these animals always exists, particularly elephant and buffalo. Being able to observe them in their natural environment whilst on foot is a truly humbling experience. At the completion of each trail, in the middle of the day and in the evenings, guests can relax, cool off in the swimming pool and enjoy the comfort and luxury of The Outpost.

There is so much more to this wilderness experience than encounters with big mammals. The trails also focus on the broader aspects of nature and the wilderness such as the sounds, the smells, the ecological web, the little and the big. The trails can also cater for special interest groups, such as botany or birds, and are conducted in areas carefully chosen to capture the diversity of topography, habitat and wildlife.

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.
