Hi - wonder what is happening to Kruger park - went to the park today and as we have little kiddies we like to go for a short srive and back to the shop for a breakfast as a treat for the family. We were informed today that they are not going to serve any other food but toasted sandwiches.............is this true. :big_eyes: So sad as we live close by and not having much other entertainment we oftern take the family there for a hamburger or waffles - and their breakfast is a real treat as a housewife who has had a busy weak and need to just get someone else make her a meal. Can someone please shed light on this. To add to this - we often caravan with the little ones at Crocodile and have a meal there to share the burden. :big_eyes:

If you mean Croc bridge rest camp. On our recent stay they only have a shop and a take out menu. No restaurant.

Hi Shushin

Yes I am talking about the little shop/take away shop at Crocodile Bridge. Their breakfast was one of the best in the park - such a shame. :(

Yes the breakfasts there were so good, it's a pity if they've stopped serving them

Recently seen a post on the SANPARKS FB page that had a photo of the Croc Bridge brekkie that looked fantastic. It was taken recently so this must be a very new development. Pity

Just been to Crocodile bridge shop and had breakfast and was told that this is the last day we can order this and other dishes like hamburgers - except toasted sandwiches.
Oh no................Please will you all write and oppose this - this is one camp shop that serves a very very good breakfast and hamburger........can anyone answer this question.....why.
in this day and age we need to create jobs and what is going to happen to the staff that controlled the kitchen - don't understand............what a shame :roll: :rtm: :roll:

This is such a shame. I hope the reconsider :( as they have no restaurant this was a great alternative. All best make sure they have stocked up before arriving as supplies will be low in the shop.

This is not good news, we stayed last New Year and had an afternoon burger instead of cooking supper. We are staying again in December and were planning the same.
Can someone find out why the change? Have they exceeded their mandate for food? Croc Bridge was one of our favourite spots for a quick snack/meal.

Hi,

I fully agree that this is sad for guests. it would be helpful from a PR point of view if Sanparks can explain these sort of changes....

Possibly it was not practical to run such a service?


Anyway, it is a shame
