Perfect for the weary traveller. I was in need of a break from crammed city life and The Outpost delivered in every aspect, last week. From warm 33degrees and sunshine, to thunderstorms and rain;Leopard, hyena,Pel's Fishing owl, Nyala's, elephants; game drives, dinner next to the fireplace (thank you Beatrice) and the epic views from the bedroom made this the perfect break away. Daniela, our guide, did not only have a thorough knowledge of the nature (spotting the Pel's Fsihing owl between all the insects and overgrowth in the night was special) but also proved her worth in the kitchen when she baked a cake and surprised one of the guests who turned 50 when we were there. The guided walk with her was brilliant as she showed every aspect of nature and how it all links. Aaron, Beatrice and Charmaine thank you for the accommodation. That was just what I needed. Definitely recommended!
