Flora and Fauna

Mammals

Crocodile Bridge is in great game viewing country and is an ideal venue to pursue the big 5.

Both rhino species are regularly seen. Giraffe, zebra and several antelope species are usually seen within a few hundred meters of the camp gate. Lion, leopard and cheetah are all regularly recorded, while hyenas patrol the camp fence every night.

Vegetation

The camp is situated in knob thorn/marula savannah on basalt soils. Other prominent trees include the round-leafed teak. The grass is sweet and this attracts many grazing species. Immediately west is a zone of delagoa thorn thicket on ecca shale soil. Here prevalent trees include the delagoa thorn and the magic guarri. The grass is still sweet, but shorter. To the east of camp is the Lebombo mountain range, where the vegetation differs again.
