The lodge is excellent value for money, with excellent staff and amazing views. It is close and convenient to Crocodile Bridge gate and packed breakfast can be arranged to allow early entry into the park. Food was excellent. Rooms were clean and attractive. Overall, a great experience.

Loved staying here mostly due to location. Right on the Crocodile Bridge Gate to Kruger park. It is a guesthouse set up in terms of meal times being shared with other guests, so you get to mingle and talk about your experience of the day and sightings in the park. Overlooks the River so you always have action in the river. We saw hippos, hyena, elephant, buck, deer, crocodiles, and birds. The hosts were super friendly and accomodating. Dinners are simple yet good value. I looked forward to dessert every evening. Breakfast you can choose a takeaway or sit down. We chose takeaway so that we get an early start to the park.

Our children and grandchildren spent a couple of days in the tented camp of the lodge. The location is amazingly perfect for a peaceful and magnificent stay at the borders of the National Kruger Park alongside the Crocodile River. Seated on the veranda you can spot various animals, amongst others elephants and hippos while sipping your wine. Also the very well organised safaritrips with guides Dylan and Glen made this stay unforgettable. The friendliness of our hosts and their staff made it very easy to sit back and enjoy which we all did!!

Great place to stay with excellent hosts. Very enjoyable and convivial evening meals. We particularly valued Geyser and Natassia's knowledge of the local bird life which made our trips into the Kruger much more rewarding. We will be back.

A little gem situated on the banks of the Crocodile River. Friendly staff willing to go the extra mile to ensure your stay is unforgettable. The food is great, with a South African twist. The Crocodile Bridge gate is 200 meters from the entrance of the lodge, allowing for quick access to the Kruger National Park.

Everything was perfect. The location by the rIver and near the Kruger park gate. The room was very nice and comfortable with a great patio and view on the river and the passing by animals. Hosts and other guests were very friendly. It is great to have meals together. Full day safari was a very beautiful time.

Everything about Crocodile Bridge Safari Lodge was a very unique experience To start, we were very warmly welcomed by Alan and Michele, who have created an environment where guests are brought together for great conversation and food. All staff work tirelessly with enthusiasm and dedication. They provided guidance on self drives as well as our full day organized safari drive. Our waterfront luxury tent gave us a front row seat to watch hippos, elephants and birds. We can’t wait to return.

Me and my boyfriend stayed at Crocodile Bridge Safari Lodge beginning of October 2023. We were warmly welcomed by Ilse and Bruce. The location is really beautiful and great to return to after a long day of safari. You can have a dip in the pool and enjoy the wild life often present at the river (we saw impalas, elephants and hippos!). There is a lovely home cooked dinner served every night (best meat we had during our trip in SA!) and the ambiance is great. I have a gluten intolerance and Ilse made sure there was always enough to eat for me to eat during dinners, which I highly appreciated! Bruce is a great story teller and very knowledgeable about nature and SA. We really loved our stay here and have missed it since then! If we come back to SA, we’ll definitely come back! All

Bruce and Ilse make this place. Yes the location is perfect, the food is amazing, the accommodations are comfortable and the showers are hot...but you can probably find these comforts elsewhere. What is more rare is the elevation of an experience that comes from exceptional hosts working hard to make an impression. Come to this place, meet these people, sit around the fire and share conversation. You will have no regrets booking this lodge.
