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.

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

Completed over 6 years in Kruger in my caravan.

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.

Croc Bridge

Unread postby shrew » Sun Jan 15, 2012 6:45 pm

Hi All

Have added 2 nights in Croc Bridge to my Kruger trip in late March. I have managed to secure the safari tents #7 and 8, but have one question and can't get the answer on the site so hoping someone out there can help me.

Do they supply crockery and cutlery? or do I have to take my own?

Looking forward to "Heavan on Earth"

No, they do not supply so you will have to take your own. Not sure if it's for hire at CB though, maybe someone in the know can comment on that.

BTW, you will enjoy # 7 & 8, perimeter and the best location imo :mrgreen:

We always stay in Tents 7 or 8 and they are the best and we have numerous 'visitors' during the evening. Even had an elie crash through the fence at 1 am! That was exciting stuff!

CB does morning drives and walks, sunset drives and on occasions night drives too. These are all available to both folk staying in the camp and those from outside (they park inside and drive out after the activity).

We have always loved Croc. Bridge and have spent many wonderful weekends there.

However, we are now a family of four and we find ourselves feeling excluded with the accommodation available at this camp.

With two young children, is there any possibility of having an extra mattress in the 3 bed units? (Or even having the two children sleep at opposite sides of one bed?).

Has anyone organized a similar arrangement? Or is it "book two units or nothing"? (Even if we do book two, our family will jam into one...).

Thanks

Hi Rooikat,
maybe contact Mr Vusi Mthombeni at Croc Bridge as per Leanawel post a few up and see if he can offer any suggestions.
