As the others have said it is a lovely little camp with great drives, however, when requesting your bungalow I would suggest choosing a perimeter bungalow that does not overlook the river. I would suggest numbers 10 - 12.

We ask for no 12 because bush babies sleep in the fence posts and come out as the sun is setting. Wonderful to watch them jumping around.

Have a great time. We will be in Croc Bridge ourselves again in September.

Hi Forumites

Can anyone tell me what the dayvistors area is like?

We are taking a hefty hike from Skuks to view the hippo pools and rock art. We wish to have a breakfast at Crocs, as it seems to be the best place to have a picnic or breakfast.

What say you about cooking at Croc`s?

Regards

Mike

I have asked another Forumite to help with your questions, but meantime:

Since Daniel retired from his job at Hippo Pools, I don't think visitors are allowed to get out of their cars and walk around there any more.

I am not sure which rock art sites you are referring to. I have only been to rock art sites whilst on organised walks, with two armed guides.

As far as I know, the day visitors' area at Crocodile Bridge is quite small.

I hope you get better answers to your questions.

Mike, the day visitors site is a very small one next to the parking area and petrol station at CB.
Its under the trees so nice and shady and I have seen people braaiing there before but its not really all that ideal due to the limited space.
Maybe better to just enjoy a packed lunch there.
There is a little coffee bar outside the shop with seats, tables & umbrellas for that and I assume anything you buy from the shop, sandwiches, rolls etc.
We called in at Hippo Pools last month and there was no guide there so it does look as if you can no longer get out and do walks like before.
Not sure if there are any plans to re-instate that?

You can stop at Lower Sabie (if en route) for a Mugg and Bean brekkie with a lovely view.

But Croc Bridge is a lovely stop off - I love the setting and have seen folk enjoying a picnic there. In my photo, you can see they do hire 'skottles' there to cook brekkie on.

Thanks all

You saved us a long trip to Hippo pools.

I have however taken note of Croc`s day visitors amenities.
