We had a wonderful stay. The owners are running the lodge and welcome you very warmly. They also organised a big self catered BBQ at night. We even had elefants come super close to our little house. Overall we will definitely use this lodge again if we are in the area. Thank you guys!

Of the two rest camps that we stayed at in Kruger this was by far our preferred site. Much quieter. The ablutions & kitchen blocks are immaculately clean. The tent was clean & tidy too, we didn't have much of a view but the viewing in the day & on the night drive made up for that. The booking in...

We had the best time staying at this accommodation! The owners are such lovely people. There were lots of elephants right in front of our door. In the evening everyone brought their own meat to the braai and they provided very nice salads and dessert. We all ate together and could exchange stories, we were sad we only spend one...

We really enjoyed our stay in the very comfortable tents but the best thing about this place is the location. It's just outside the entrance to Kruger Park and has excellent views over the river. We had the pleasure of watching elephants and buffalo pass by from the deck.

We got by luck a perimeter room (hut 3) with a view of the river were you could sit and watch elephant on the opposite bank of the river. The room was a fairly typical SANP bungalow, twin bed, shower and self-catering facilities on the veranda. Monkeys and wart hogs roamed the camp and this was great. The monkeys will...

Easy access to the park, staying in a unique large tent but with all the comforts of a hotel. The view was spectacular and I loved the idea of the braii in the evening which as a guest you were invited to join if you wished.. I highly recommend the Crocodile Bridge Lodge.

we planned to stay 2 nights but left after one. He gave us the biggest tent up front, but I think it may have been the oldest one. It could have been cleaner and a new carpet - or better wooden floor - would help a lot. The bathroom is ok for a tent, but there was a bad smell...

This was a small rest camp very close to the Crocodile River, which was fully booked at the time we were there. We got the very last cottage most probably because it was reserved for a person with a wheelchair. So, apparently they had no call from a client with disabilities, so we were able to get it. Although the...

Overall enjoyable stay at Crocodile Bridge Rest Camp. One of the better Camping sites in the Kruger. No pool at the camp but a great atmosphere, friendly people and very good camping facilities. Well worth staying over a night before driving north in the Kruger.

We stayed in a rondavell at Crocodile Bridge and found the accommodations higher than expectations. Very clean, wonderful bathroom and very quiet. The staff there were very nice, cute little shop on center and a little coffee joint. The only thing we found lacking was a restaurant in the camp. They do allow visitors to leave through the gate and...
