Fizzpop - I wonder if your comment on the proximityof the camp to the gate will not be addressed when the new bridge is built. I believe that the go ahead has been given for a joint Govt./Sanparks project (R30 million) for a new access bridge over the Crocodile River. I wonder if traffic will be allowed to continue using the causeway whilst the new bridge is under construction?

I have always found this to be a delightful little camp if one can obtain a cottage that does not look onto the riverbed. Unfotunately these are subject to a huge spotlight that comes on from the bank on the other side as well as a pump that goes through the night. If you ask for the rondavels immediately to the right of the camping ground this seems to be the best bet.

We have had brilliant sightings whilst staying at this camp - the best of all being no fewer than three wild dog kills - one in the Crocodile river bed to the left of the causeway in front of Elephant Walk, the other right outside the gate - the people were lining the fences it was so close to the gate and the third 4 km's down the road. Happy hunting grounds for us indeed along with all the other special sightings. This year we saw a Kori Bustard 2 km's from the gate and I have never seen them this far South so that was a first for us.

We had a lovely stay in Chalets 12&13.

I have to agree with Kobie Kruger who wrote in one of her books that the sun rises in the south and sets in the north @ Croc Bridge. Never before have I felt so confused... :lol:

Do yourself a favour and take note of this unexplained phenomenon. :twisted:

does anyone know if bedding is supplied for the safari tents? trying to not buy a sleeping bag. Same applies to the accomodation on the wilderness trail; do SANParks supply bedding or do we need to bring?

Thanks.

Hi Johan,

CB is one of our favourate main camps in KNP. Bungalows do have 3 beds so they are a bit larger than for example in Satara. Mostly all of them hv a perimeter view, own kitchen with utensils and of course own braai. Camp itself is lovely, very green with sausage trees and others, Camp shop is good stocked for such a small camp and the roads around camp are highly big 7 area :dance: (we count cheetah and wild dog as well) and maybe you will be able to meet Duke.

Wishing you a wonderful trip and of course lot's of unexpected sightings.

For my 4 night stay at end of August can someone enlighten me as regards the following :
If there are 2 safari tents near the camping area that look out northwards over the bush , from which the lights and farming activities / dogs barking / filling station activities may not be so visible / audible .


Tents no 7 & 8 overlook the game area and when I stayed in no 7 in December, the only thing that disturbed me was the woodland kingfisher call. :dance:

They are all facing each other in a half mooned shape. So it is half difficult to say which is the best. there are however two more tents alongside the fence next to the camping area, which has more privacy.

No 7 which I stayed in in December, and 8 which is closer to the game fence and has the better view.

Andrew, I agree with BB. No 7 & 8 is right next to the fence and they have a great open view into the felt. We saw amny came from those tents during the May '07 visit.

Hi
Can anyone tell me the definition of "utensils" in CB Bungalows - do they include pots/pans and a kettle. We are going to be there end of March 2008 - can't wait! Thanks for the info on sightings

Hi Chrstnmcbt,

and first of all a big welcome to the forum. All bungalows in Croc Bridge will have an own kitchen, own braai and of course lots of utensils which includes I guess 2 pans & pots, a water cooker, a toaster and lots of plates, cups and also all cutlery you may need to make a delicious braai.

Enjoy your stay there :dance:
