Our second stay at The Outpost, and nicely timed for the January 2013 floods. The management and staff were fantastic. They did so much for not only their own guests, but for everyone else in the area which was cut off due to all roads out being closed. We cannot thank them enough.
It's true that there are less big animals in this region. But if you enjoy nature, you will love it here. It is so friendly and laid back, and this part of the park is so quiet. The Outpost is stunning, but it's a quirky kind of luxury, a bit raw at the same time. Anyone wanting fluffy luxury might find it a bit challenging, especially at night when you most notice that there aren't any real walls. But it's an experience like no other, and we absolutely love it.
We have had excellent guides both times we have stayed here.
