About Crocodile Bridge rest camp

Crocodile Bridge is a charming small camp that has a very peaceful ambiance.  Found at the southern border of Kruger, it is right next to Crocodile Bridge Gate and overlooks the river of the same name, so is ideal for visitors completing a long journey to the park who need a convenient night’s sleep before the game driving starts for real the following morning!

 

The local wildlife is very good too, with easy access into the Sabie River habitats to the north and local roads traversing a range of ecozones that offer all manner of animals, large and small.  The camp is home to several habituated bushbuck that will let you get pretty close to them.

 

The camp is modest in size and hosts a small number of bungalows, safari tents and camping grounds.  There are no restaurant or bar facilities here although the shop has a small selection of food options for preparing yourself.  You are likely better stopping at an outside supermarket to stock up beforehand though, with the town of Komatipoort only 14km away.
