I have just returned from Kruger and stayed in many of the camps.

Crocodile Bridge was in my opinion, leagues ahead of the others.

The camp was neat, the ablutions spotless, and there were no maintenance issues that I noticed. They even had forms in the ablutions you could fill in if you noticed something that needed to be repaired, or upgraded. The cleaning register in the ablutions was up-to-date and had been filled in regularly, indicating a regular cleaning schedule.

The other camps were not in the same condition though. The biggest disappointment being the ablution block at Skukuza that was dirty and in an extremely bad state of repair. There had been no obvious upgrade or maintenance since the last time I had stayed in Skukuza - two years prior.

Well done Crocodile Bridge - keep it up!!

That's great - kudos to the Manager and staff at Crocodile Bridge. :clap: :clap:
And surely this is the difference.... effective management who put in place systems to ensure high standards are kept up.

Tumble Weed, I have just finished filling in my feedback of my stays in Lower Sabie and Pretorius Kop. The one thing I suggested is an "ablution form". So often there are little things, a leaking toilet, a dripping tap, something small, but it can give a shoddy impression.

I think every camp should implement this small, but effective tool.

Well done Croc Bridge :D
:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Were we there at the same time?

I also stayed at Skukuza and Croc Bridge. Croc Bridge gets my vote for camp of the year. :clap: :clap:

It is a pity you have so little regard for the rules of these forums! Good bye!

Satara has it! They put them in the huts. I guess they must also have them in the camp-site ablutions. very good idea.
