Photos taken 21 September 2009 of the progress of the new entrance gate and bridge.

I was told at reception the drive through gate would be opening within a few weeks time.

First two were taken from inside the park, next two, outside.

Our favourite camp, usually stay in bungalow 9 which has a great view of the river - situated in the corner of the camp. Lots of game seen going down to the river to drink :dance: Love the size of the camp, would be great when the new entrance gate is finished!
Size of the freezer/fridge on the verandah - adequate for at least a week's provisions for two people.

My wife is in a wheel chair as well, we go to the kruger as much as we can.
Word of advice they say that the bungalo or tnt with a "z" is for the disabled. Not all of them is 100% accessible. You are taking somebody with, good can some times be a strucle to get in out of the car alone because the ground are not level. Most of the camps have additional ablution blocks with facilities for disabled. we have found that they are much more accesible than the facilities in the bungalo's. My wife always say where there is a change she will get it done.
"Waar n wil is is n weg".

Go and enjoy we are everytime we are in the Kruger or any SANPARK.

They are realy trying to make the camps more accesible for disabled people.

The website disabledtravel.co.za shows details of accessible accommodation in Kruger and other National Parks. If you use the link http://www.disabledtravel.co.za/accom.php?prop_id=210 you will see a full description of the accommodation units at Crocodile Bridge together with photographs of the bathroom including shower, toilet, etc.
Making a reservation for wheelchair accessible accommodation can only be done directly with National Parks and not through any of their agents. Specific help can be obtained from Hester van der Berg at e-mail hestherv@sanparks.org or on telephone 012-426-5117.
Hope this helps!

Went to Skukuza today, and returned via CB - this is how much progress has been made since the stated start date of 6th January!

The old bridge is showing signs of damage on the edges too.

These pics were taken on Sunday 21 March, a long weekend. While taking the pics people of all shapes and sizes and cultures were turned away as the gate quota had been reached. The police were there to assist security.

The new bridge waiting to be placed.

Its become a ritual for us, we love the little shop at Croc bridge, no matter how long we been in the park we always leave early for a fab breakfast at Croc Bridge. I love that they have moved the Coffee stall outside. Its a lovely area, great food and wonderfull helpfull friendly staff,
Keep it up Croc Bridge :clap:
