Croc Bridge

by Trevor

Croc Bridge is one of the best camps in the park. Game viewing is good in the area around the camp. Please can someone please tell me when the bridge over the Croc. river will be repaired as this is a huge problem for the people that have timeshare just outside the park.

Thanks for getting back to us William. It must be as frustrating for you as it is for us - you appoint a contractor and then you find he cannot do the job so you have to source another one and by then it's summer and the rains are here.
Let's hope this new contractor knows his stuff and doesn't get 'washed away' like the others!

Crocodile Bridge

The new contractor was appointed in February 2010 and his undertaking was to complete the bridge in three months, however he could not start with the work due to all the rains that we received since then. Currently the plan for the contractor is to move in on Monday 19 April if rain do not continue and he should complete the project by the begining of August, then the problem would solved completely.

Good Question Trevor!

Hi Trevor

I know your frustration as we have often driven from Jhb to Croc Bridge gate only to find it's closed. Not only do we have to drive all the way back to Malelane gate but we don't get to drive along the main road from Croc Bridge to Lower Sabie or on the S28 which, as you correctly stated, are the best roads in the park for consistant sightings of big game.
I have asked Paul Mnisi, the camp manager at Croc Bridge, if he has an answer and either he or I will let you know. The bridge has been 'under construction' for too long now - i think it's time for us to see a finished new bridge!
