We spent three days at the Outpost and did 5 walking safaris. We walked into elephants, buffalo, warthogs, nyala, kudu. impala, hippos, crocs and jackals on foot... we tracked lions and leopards. IT was such a trilling experience to walk for hours without the rover and hear and feel nature. While yes, there is less big game up North, the topography is stunning, the fever trees, the baobab trees, the gorge. We also spent three days in Idube and while we saw big game all over the place, it is not nearly the same experience as walking. Both compliment each other.
The rooms are stunning. Staff amazng and our food was excellent. We were catered to hand and food. I would recommend this place to anyone. It is magical.
