We had visited the Central and North parts of the Kruger and avoided the South as it tends to be very busy, but we were passing so decided to risk it. We chose Crocodile Bridge for our first 3 nights camping as it's right at the gate and we were arriving late in the day. Everything is well laid out... More

The 'tents' were immaculate and the beds extremely comfortable. I say it as 'tents' because they are much more luxurious than any tent I am used to. The grounds are well manicured and the pool looks right into the river with crocodiles, birds, hippos and other animals passing by. The hosts were lovely and hosted us with a braii where... More

We stayed for one night at croc bridge. The accommodation was clean and the beds comfy. There is no restaurant onsite but a well stocked shop with all you could need to self-cater. There was a well equipped outside kitchen including microwave and fridge. A family of warthogs strolled by, they seem to live there to keep the grass trimmed... More

We stayed in one of the bungalows. It was an amazing experience. While the Croc Bridge gate may be one of the furthest from Johannesburg, we still found it great. There was no wifi- and from what I understand there was no wifi in Lower Sabie as well. Lower Sabie is about 30km from this camp. I felt LS was... More

We stayed in Crocodile Bridge for 2 nights. It's one of the smaller camps in Kruger but definitaly well organised. The tent is on a platform so there are no bugs on the ground. There is a fan that works perfectly. Beds are good and there is a fridge to store your food. Toilets and showers are very clean and... More

Thank you Scott & Karon (Jock & Jessie) for a wonderful stay! What a perfect place you have, you could hardly be closer to the gate & lion, elephant & buffalo just across the river. We loved the evening braais , with all the enjoyment of eating & chatting & not much more to do than turn the chops!!! Many... More

This is the third time that we have visited this camp, and yet again it was the favourite camp of the trip. Flew from Joberg to Nelspruit, stopped off for shopping at Melenane (45 mins) and then a very easy drive along the main N4 ( 45 mins) to the easily signposted Crocodile Bridge Camp. Quick sign in at the... More

This is a stunning little restcamp at the Crocodile Bridge gate to Kruger National Park (KNP). We always use this as our first night overnighting venue, after a long drive from Durban to KNP. The camp staff are incredibly friendly. The little shop is always very well stocked. The camps is great, with nicely spaced rondavels, excellent community ablutions, which... More

We love Crocodile Bridge Rest Camp, it is small and very we'll looked after, the bungalows are well equipped and comfortable. The game in this part of the park is more plentiful than in the north but the trade off is that there are far more vehicles. The shop is well stocked and the staff are all extremely friendly and...
