We have just returned from 5 nights at Crocodile Bridge Safari Lodge and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The Lodge is set on the banks of the Crocodile River and all rooms have stunning views. Elephants meander through the reeds, literally metres away from you, and endless wildlife visits throughout the day and night.
Lorrie and David saw to our smallest needs and made us, and all their guests, feel so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for them and it was much appreciated! Although it is self catering, they provided delicious salads and freshly baked breads each night so all we had to do was braai our meat (on the fire David made). Really not like self catering at all! The atmosphere in the large lapa is friendly, relaxed and social, with guests sitting around and swapping tales of their day as they dine on the delicious food and enjoy a cold beer.
The rooms are spotless and all have a deck overlooking the river. Absolutely beautiful! Situated 200m from Crocodile Bridge Gate, it is truly very special. This was our second stay here and it will certainly not be our last. To be fair, it puts the accommodation available inside the park to shame.
And the cherry on the top? This morning we woke up to lions and hyenas having a very noisy stand off on the opposite bank for 4 hours. I left the Lodge with tears in my eyes and a huge smile on my face.
Well done, Lorrie and David, and thank you!
