The Outpost arranged our wedding in the FTF for 30-odd people. Long story short: The perfect lodge setting overlooking the bush and the staff (both onsite and reservations) delivered a once-in-a-lifetime experience that "blew us away". The "spaces" (aka rooms) are unique and are an experience in themselves - one can spend an entire day in one's "space" in serene contentment.
We're planning a return visit in order to immerse ourselves again in the lodge's facilities, including benefiting from the most interesting rangers (Kara, Sarah, Alveet). The couple running the lodge (Beatrice + Aaron) are terrific/attentive and the reservations team (Lauren, May and Richard) are organisers par excellence. Well done all!
