Crocodile Bridge Camp
Crocodile Bridge is a beautiful little camp found in the far South Eastern Corner of the Park at the Crocodile Bridge Gate. The camp is situated on the northern bank of the crocodile river which also forms the southern boundary of the Park. What it lacks in size it makes up for in diversity of fauna and flora. The game density around the camp is some of the highest in the Park as a result of flat clay rich soils that make up this corner of the park. Rich red "hutton soil" gives rise to a variety of sweet grasses and vachellia (acacia) woodland trees attracting browsers and grazers from all over.
Beside its rich diversity in flora, the area also has a lot of history with remnants still visible today of the first pioneers into the area. As you cross the crocodile river you can immediately see the old remains of the Selati Railway line that was constructed back in 1894.
