We recently had another wonderful stay at Crocodile Bridge Camp in the Safari tents that were situated right on the fenceline.

This camp is our all time favourite, it has a lovely feel about the place and cozy and neat and not overcrowded.
The Safari Tents are reasonably priced and although its self catering they provide you with towels and each tent has a fridge/freezer and fan.

While relaxing around the braai fire we had Hyenas running along the fenceline and also enjoyed the antics of three cute and inquisitve little Bushbabies that jumped back and forth on the fence to 'investigate' what we were up to! The calls of Hippo and Lions are frequently heard.
The Camp has small shop that sells basic food stuffs, biltong, beer and wine,ice and curios. They also serve breakfasts and toasted sandwiches, burgers and tea/coffee and make divine cuppacino's!

Watch out for Scorpions at night on your way to the kitchen or showers so a torch is essential and also for spotting animals at the fence!
We have camped and stayed in the Safari Tents and Bungalows numerous times over the past few years and always enjoyed our stay at Croc Bridge Camp!

The best part is ofcourse the excellent game sightings around the southern part of the reserve.
Our advice would be, to get up early and have flask coffee and rusks ready and leave the moment the gates open and pack a picnic basket just incase you stay out longer.
We'll be back in December camping at Croc with our Afrispoor Trailer and counting down the days!!

This smaller, more friendly and intimate restcamp was surprisingly enjoyable as our last night in the park. Featuring roving warthogs and a monkey population, inside the fence, and hyenas outside the fence, with lots of birdlife, the camp had a nice atmosphere. The huts were the best equipped of any in the park with full sets of dishware, cookware, wineglasses in several sizes, and a new scouring pad and dishsoap for cleanup. With no restaurant, this was a further place for using a nice braii--and it was the favorite evening activity for every visitor--whether they were cooking anything or just wanted a firepit, as it were. Yes, it amused us, to have signs to turn the refrigerator to the wall to prevent monkeys from raiding the food supplies, but if they were that clever so be it. Check-in was a bit of a comedy of errors, with frankly staff that seemed ill-trained for room inventory monitoring. Having lost the official room key they kept insisting that we try an alternate key which clearly did not work, which only resulted in their finally giving up, and assigning us to a different (slightly less desirable, and smoke-smelling) hut. A comedy of errors, but at the pricey cost of a bungalow and conservation fee, seems like the registration staff ought to be able to toss in some small bonus for our troubles, and taking over an hour to get a room, in a half-filled camp at best--when I had booked and paid six months in advance. Curio/craft store was particularly nice with many artisans represented. Entrance station was also very very nice, and the only one which had the park newsletter. Of notable problems with the park overall, was it was only after arriving at this final destination that we found there was a road closure on our intended drive out of the park the next day, resulting in a total reworking and backtracking of our driving route. Cannot figure out why each camp does not prominently display road closures, hazards, incidents, weather reports.

Room Tip: Request perimeter room with view. Ask for non-smoking hut (don't know if they have it). Ask for a room with refrigerator cage (so don't have to keep moving refrigerator to face wall to keep monkeys out).

We have always chosen camps further into Kruger Park on our visits to South Africa thinking we would see more wildlife - What a mistake! Our rondavel faced the perimet of the camp and a hyena ran past on both evenings we were there. The alpha male baboon in one troop in the camp was very agressive towards me. Keep your fridge door well protected or they will steal your food. Good clean basic rooms and spacious showers. The luxury camps are not for us. Brai every evening - make sure you take your own food (Komaatipoort has a big supermarket) - there is a good shop in the camp but the food range is not enormous. Wildlife on the main and side soads around Croc Bridge is wonderful - stick to the south f the aprk and you will ahve the nost wonderful game viewing holiday imaginable at fantastic value

Room Tip: Book early!

Crocodile Bridge Restcamp was our first Kruger camp and we enjoyed it. Stayed there for one night in a bungalow, which was nice and comfortable (private shower and toilet). The (outside) kitchen is nice and well equiped. It was fun to sit on the terrace and watch the monkeys and warthogs. On the other side of the fence we saw impala's and hyena's: they were attracted by the bbq! It certainly is a good place to stay, especially as a first (or last) stop in Kruger. Crocodile Bridge is a small, pleasant and quiet camp. The shop was quite good.

In my opinion, it was the best camp in Kruger. Better than Skukuza, Lower Sabbie or Pretoriuskop. Very small and intimate, where you have a very good, close contact with animals. There is a very quiet and peaceful. At night you can listen to the passing next to the elephants and lions. Amazing place. Bungalows was really good.
