I hoped you banged on the shower door Angiek! If one needs an extra long clean up shower, surely it should be during the day when everyone else is out and about. Apart from the drought.

Dalene, thanks for advising us that campsites at Crocodile Bridge are now demarcated.

We are three families with three caravans camping there end of May for 6 days. I have noted that my booking does not mention which sites are allocated to us. How do you suggest we go about to secure three sites close to our friends ?

Hi Lennie, we once had a similar situation and we emailed the camp beforehand in order to secure suitable accommodation.

Enjoy. :thumbs_up:

Demarcated only means that spaces have poles on the ground to show where they are and what size they are. They are not allocated, you still choose your own on arrival.

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

The camping area is compact and beautifully treed. Even if not next to each other you could be opposite, or very close. If you are lucky 1 or more of your group could get a spot on the fence for all to gather for sundowners.

Lennie Senior, one tip I can give, and you might be aware of this; try get to the camp to set up at about 9am. Usually folk pack up and leave camps early to move to the next camp. Try also to arrange that you arrive Monday - Wed in a camp, that is usually when it is quieter, but perhaps not during May as that is a very popular time.

I hope it stays that way too, I do not like the idea of allocated sites at all. That's part of the fun of camping in Kruger , make a "home" of the site you find vacant :D :thumbs_up:
I hate it when the voices in my head go silent.......I never know what they are planning. :roll:

So when is old enough to know better supposed to kick in ?

Thank you for all the responses - bottom line, choosing a site remains as in the past.

Dalene, thanks for the tip, however, that has always been my way of going about. Sometimes this may be a challenge when you have to travel from one camp to another.

Here is a pic of a previous camping spot at Croc.
