Crocodile bridge rest camp is the perfect place for a quiet getaway. Whether its camping, tented camps or chalets. This is a quiet escape. No restaurant, so take your meat, wood and charcoal. Start a fire and spend quality quiet time with your partner. The bush is a magical escape.

We stayed at this lodge for 3 days during March 2015. We enjoyed our stay at Crocodile very much. Jacques the manager, as well as the rest of the staff ,did everything to ensure that our stay was brilliant! We love the sightings of wildlife around the lodge. We saw some elephants, buffalo, chameleon and fish eagle from the Lodge's... More

We stayed down the road at a different lodge which we had trouble with from the start. The rest of our party stayed at the Crocodile and Jacques, the manager, did everything to ensure that our stay in Marloth was brilliant. He got our keys for us, provided towels and treated us as though we were staying in his accommodation.... More

We brought our family and closest friends to this beautiful and friendly lodge for four days in November to celebrate our wedding and were blown away by how wonderfully looked after we were by Jacques and his staff. We bombarded them with emails from the UK for months ahead of arriving, turned up five hours late due to transport issues... More

We stayed in the garden cottage. The cottage has a tv connected to the channels in the bar that has the full dstv. Everything is clean and the staff are very helpful and eager. The swimming pool area is really nice and peaceful. The only reason we would not visit the lodge again is the area it is situated in,... More

We stayed 2 years ago as the finale of our dream vacation ( 5 weeks ) to hang around Kruger for a week. We loved our experience here so much we came back ! Crocodile Kruger Lodge is a big part of why we returned. So close with easy access to the Kruger National park. Having loved it so much... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of October and had a truly fabulous time. The room was wonderful with a very comfortable bed and a veranda that looked out over the Crocodile River. Food was excellent and the Boma evening was great fun. Staff were lovely, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I would seriously... More

Overall a very nice place. A great common area with a large open fireplace and a upper deck verandah that allowed a view over the river. Service was efficient and friendly and the food very good. Wifi was free but limited to the reception/common area and tended to disappear at night. The room was well equipped and could be self... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the lodge. The tents are new, clean and well equiped. We liked the braai and eating together in the evening. The location is perfect for visiting the Kruger; in about 3 min you are at the gate.

Didn't want to leave! They welcome you with juice drinks (and a baboon on the balcony!). The rooms look out onto a hypnotic view of the river, where we watched hippos, lions, crocs, impala etc. Games drives were always made exciting by Frankie, who seems to know absolutely everything about The Wild. Saw the Big Five plus many other astounding... More
