          We stayed two nights before leaving for a 9 day Safari, and one night afterward. The Outpost is a small, secluded setting tucked into a bustling city. Our rooms were pretty basic, but roomy. It's an old building, so there was some wear and tear....More

          The rooms and bathrooms were ok, but pool is very tiny and didn't appear to be clean. Food was so-so and breakfast left a lot to be desired. Cheesy entertainment in the evening, followed by "pressure" to tip said cheesy entertainers. You get what you...More

          A quiet haven to chill before or after hikes/safari. Cafe has yummy food, cold beer and kickass coffee. Wild variety of rooms. We stayed in 3 all the same price...2 were average and one was great. I suggest you look before settling on one.

          Dear Lagitz I am so sorry to hear you had such a bad experience at our hotel! I am absolutely devastated to read some of the comments that you have made showing that your expectations were far from met and also that this review will obviously cause considerable damage to our reputation in already tough year.:/ I hope you have a moment to awnser some questions of mine so that I may investigate immediately so that I can ensure no one else has the same experience! 1. What do you mean by not much water you could use? 2. Who did you speak to at reception? I am very confused as we do not have any female receptionists so… 3. Which maintenance work disturbed you? Thank you very much for your feedback! They say a guest sees more in a hour than a host sees in a year which must be true as your observations at the Outpost have obviously evaded my attention. Kindest Regards Simon
