Crocodile Bridge Main Camp - Kruger Park

Crocodile Bridge is a small and delightful camp situated in the south-eastern corner of the Kruger National Park, on the banks of the Crocodile River. The Camp also serves as an entrance gate into the Park and is only 10 kilometres from Komatipoort and the N4 national highway.

Crocodile Bridge is in great game viewing country and is an ideal venue to pursue the Big 5. Both rhino species are regularly seen. Giraffe, zebra and several antelope species are usually seen within a few hundred metres of the camp gate. Lion, leopard and cheetah are all regularly recorded, while hyena patrol the camp fence every night.

The rest camp itself has a busy stream of bird activity. Look for Orange-breasted Bush Shrike, Brown-headed Parrot and a host of small ground feeding seedeaters such as waxbills, manikins, firefinches, widowfinches and canaries.

The camp is situated in knob thorn/marula savannah on basalt soils. Other prominent trees include the round-leafed teak. The grass is sweet thus attracting many grazing species. To the east of camp is the Lebombo Mountain Range. Here the vegetation differs again. However, there are no public access roads into this area.

Extra information

Climate: Kruger is in a summer rainfall area and this can result in heavy downpours. The summer months (October to April) are hot and often balmy. Winters are warm and mild, although visitors going on night-drives will require warm clothing.

Handy Hints: Plan your trip – do not try and cover too great a distance. Kruger is a massive tract of land and frequently visitors try to cover to much ground. Slow travel and regular stopping produces much more action than covering a lot of ground. Early mornings and evening time are usually the most productive game viewing periods

Remember to bring a camera, binoculars, bird and wildlife reference books, a hat and sunscreen lotion. Also remember to take along medicines such as anti-histamine and lotion for insect stings and bites.

Please Take Note: The speed limit is 50 km/h on tar and 40 km/h on gravel. Visitors are not permitted to leave their vehicle other than at designated get out points and rest camps. Pets are not permitted in a national park. Do not leave any food unattended, as thieving monkeys and baboons are a constant threat. Firearms must be declared at the entrance gate and sealed. The seal will be broken upon departure. Open vehicles must obtain the necessary permit. Feeding of the animals is strictly prohibited for yours and the animal’s safety and well-being. Kruger is a malaria zone.

Wheelchair Access: The reception office, together with a small shop, is easily accessed in a wheelchair. The camp itself is a small one (20 huts) and access around it is facilitated via bricked roads. The ablution facilities for campers and day visitors have a separate unisex toilet/shower equipped with barrier free facilities. One of the new permanent tents has been equipped with a ramp to facilitate accessibility. As with most camps, the washing up facility is up a high step. Two huts have been adapted for use by wheelchair users. In terms of self-catering, the huts contain a refrigerator, a stove (with clearance space beneath), a sink, a table and two cupboards containing crockery and utensils.
