This camp borders the Crocodile River in the south-eastern corner of the Park, and mainly serves as an Entrance or Exit Gate to the south. The camp has a fuel station, a small shop offering basic items, and a laundrette. Accommodation is in bungalows which can sleep up to 3 people.
A short 8 km drive from the camp takes you to the Hippo Pool, where you can walk with a guide down to the river to watch the many hippo. At the parking area is a Bushman painting dating back several hundred years.
Accommodation at Crocodile Bridge Rest Camp is well suited to guests looking for a self-catering bushveld experience.

Directions For Drivers
If you are entering the Park for the first time, the best gate to enter through is the Crocodile Bridge Gate. If you are driving to the camp from within the Park, please use the 'South African National Parks Visitors Guide to the Kruger National Park' which contains detailed road maps.
From Johannesburg: Take the N12/N4 towards Witbank/eMalahleni. From Witbank/eMalahleni, stay on the N4, passing Middleburg and Waterval Boven before reaching Nelspruit. Continue along the N4 past Nelspruit towards Komatipoort. Approximately 110 km after Nelspruit, you will see signs off to the left for the Crocodile Bridge Gate. Once inside the Park, Crocodile Bridge camp is right at the gate.
From the Nelspruit/Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport: Follow the signs to Nelspruit/N4. Turn onto the N4 towards Malelane, and follow the directions as above.
Once inside the Park, do not get out of your car until you reach the camp. You may see some wildlife on your way - if you do, slow down and maintain a good distance. Do not drive off-road in any circumstances.
PLEASE NOTE: The Kruger National Park prohibits the use of roads within the Park before the gates are open and once the gates are closed, therefore guests need to plan their arrival and departure times carefully. You cannot arrange to leave the Park before the gates are open, and you must ensure that you arrive at the entrance gate with sufficient time to drive through the Park to reach your destination by the time the gate closes, otherwise you may not be permitted to enter.
