A simply spectacular experience. The African bush with five star service, gorgeous bedrooms and game drives! My favorite is that you can sleep with the blinds open and have the full experience of nature while sleeping in luxury!

The Outpost is probably one of the best hotel I have ever stayed at! The room, the view, the game, the food, the staff: everything made it quite extraordinary really. Thank you so much for sharing this place (out of this world) with us!
