On our way to Kruger National Park we stayed at Crocodile Bridge Rest Camp for one night. It is an awesome place with great game sightings already from outside the park. Scott and Allen hosted us perfectly and the evening braai we enjoyed a lot. Thanks for having us. We can't wait to visit you again. Arnd

My wife and I have camped here and stayed in the tented camps. Very comfortable and clean tents. Ablutions also clean. Perfect for a little getaway if you braai(BBQ) or cook your own food as there is no restaurant. Lovely to sit around the fire and enjoy a quiet evening. This camp is peaceful and tranquil, escape to the wild.... More

I stayed in Croc Bridge for one night in a BD3 bungalow along the fence line & Crocodile River. I drove the S25 to CB and saw lots of elephants and wart hogs. At the nearby Hippo Pools, went on a short walk (free) with an armed ranger. It was a beautiful location along the Crocodile River, full of Hippos... More

We stayed at Crocodile Bridge the first night we came to Kruger and were pleasantly surprised with our accommodations. Our guys were a nice size for 3 people with a shower and toilet inside. Our patio area was great, with plenty of space and utensils for our BBQ that night. An elephant even poked his head over the fence that... More

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

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
