Crocodile Bridge Entrance Gate in the South of the Kruger National Park (KNP) was opened again for traffic today (Tuesday January 2, 2007) after it was closed for four days due to the rising of the Crocodile River.

The gate was closed on Friday December 29, 2006 when it was deemed too dangerous to cross the low water bridge over the Crocodile River.

However, the KNP has received warnings of further rain in the catchment area of the Crocodile River over the next few days so there is a possibility that the gate could be closed again.

In the event that the gate is closed again, guests are requested to use any one of the other gates in that area, which include Malelane, Numbi, Phabeni and Paul Kruger entrance gates and change their travel plans accordingly, remembering gate opening and closing times and the speed limits enforced in the KNP.

Guests are urged to contact Crocodile Bridge Rest Camp on 013 735 6012 to ensure that the gate is open on the day of their journey to the KNP.

Crocodile Bridge Entrance Gate is situated near Komatipoort, Mpumalanga and is particularly popular with visitors from Mozambique and the Southern Lowveld region.
