The evening BBQ offers the chance to share experiences with other guests and to benefit from Scott`s knowlegde of the park and animals and Allans friendly hospitality. Convenient access to the park is a bonus. A leisurely breakfast can also bring interesting sightings.

Crocodile Bridge was the first rest camp I stayed at when traveling through Kruger. I saw by far the most wildlife and game while in this area! I know it's all up to chance, but overall just a really great experience. One downside is that there isn't a restaurant, so be sure to buy groceries beforehand because each tent has...

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...
