Extra mattresses are available and used......but it is a case of first-come-first-served unless booked in advance. As Elsa suggested, contact the camp direct. Stephen Nel is now the camp manager there (stephen.nel@sanparks.org)

Have you read the entrance permit? Do you KNOW the Conditions of Entry?

Hi, Vanillamanilla

Please note that Crocodile Bridge has sunset drive not night drive at the price is R202. The kind of vehicle used depend on the number of people. For example small vehicles carry 10 people while the bigger vehicles carry 22 people.

Vanillamanilla, what I did ,
look at the previous night,s spotter board, speak to the guide or asked at reception about the vehicles, routes and they(reception/drivers) normally are very helpful.
The thing is that vehicles have brake downs and the guides got their own informants i.r.o. hot spots or movements.
Enjoy

Good advice. :thumbs_up:

Croc Bridge Shop

Can someone advise what food is available at this current time at the shop. After the closure of the unofficial kitchen, what was said to be available during our visit in August last year, was very lacking. :popcorn:

In March, premade sandwiches, in take away plastic containers, stored in a fridge. There may have been something else but that's what we saw.
Nice coffee bar outside.

Hi Guzz

The Day visitors area is to the right of the Petrol station as you come in the camp gate. You can hire skottels from the patrol attendant.

Will be staying at CB in October for a Week. I am curious as to what has happened to the Shop at CB. Has it been franchised as well and if not has it changed at all? Also curious to know how the refurbished Safari Tents & and 8 are?

Don't think the shop there is up for refurbishment yet as far as I know, was still pretty much the same in June this year.
The tents still seem to be getting good reviews.

I think the only change to the shop is the fact they can't sell the range of takeaways that they used to be able too. :(

I sooo miss the ostrich burgers. But the kitchen wasn't up to health regulations.
