It’s a well-known fact that the highest concentration of wildlife – and the easiest access – is on the southern side of the Kruger National Park and Crocodile Bridge is the ideal base from which to take advantage.
Crocodile Bridge is located in the north east province of Mpumalanga, South Africa just 430km from Johannesburg and 460km from Pretoria via the N4 highway. Surrounded by bushveld, the climate is dry and cool in winter, and hot during the summer months. Game viewing is possible throughout the year and practically on your doorstep!
Only the Crocodile River separates Crocodile Bridge from the Kruger National Park where you can enjoy spectacular views of the many animals frequenting the river.
Things to do
The wildlife viewing options at the adjoining Kruger National Park are plentiful: revel in a self-drive starting at the Skukuza rest camp and at your own leisure, take a bush walk guided by an armed ranger for close encounters, tour the park in an open roof 4x4 with a registered guide or see majestic overhead views of the park in a hot air balloon.
Visit the Hippo Pools off the S25 to be escorted on foot to the river’s edge for incredibly close views of river mammals, reptiles and birds.
Take a day trip to Hazyview and visit the Perry’s Bridge Trading Post for unique shopping options, to attend an interactive exhibition at the reptile park, spoil yourself to a spa treatment or attempt the treetop challenge at Skyway Trails.
