Please Note: there are no late entry permits into Kruger National Park due to the strict security surrounding the poaching of Rhinos.
This small and delightful Crocodile Bridge Restcamp - Kruger Park, is situated in the south-eastern corner of the Kruger National Park, on the northern bank of the Crocodile River, from which it derives its name.
The camp also serves as an entrance gate into the park and is only 13 km from Komatipoort and the national N4 highway.
Five km from the camp visitors may leave their vehicles for a short walk to the river to watch - among other things - the hippo and crocodile lazing in pools and basking on sandbanks.
Elephant and rhino are often sighted in this vicinity, and the grasslands attract zebra, wildebeest, impala, kudu, waterbuck and large herds of buffalo.
After an early morning game drive, one can retire from the Lowveld heat to a lunch of prawns before coming back for late afternoon game viewing.
The game viewing area is known as the Southern Circle and is renowned for its concentration of different prides of lion with different hunting techniques and behaviour.
It has an abundance of prides, herds, troops, packs and swarms. It is home to a larger percentage of the Kruger National Parks total rhino population.
No restaurant or cafeteria facilities exist in the camp, but the camp shop does stock the basic food and drink requirements together with a small compliment of books and curios. The retail hours are the same as for the entrance gates.
The petrol station has got a ready supply of hi-octane, unleaded and diesel fuels, engine oils and compressed air for inflating tyres.
Laundromat facilities are available - coin-operated washing machines and tumble dryers can be used at any time during your stay.
