Kruger National Park
Crocodile Kruger Safari Lodge is situated on the banks of the Crocodile River, overlooking the Kruger National Park, one of South Africa's premier tourist destinations.
Regular Big 5 sightings are possible from the lodge but a visit to the park itself should not be missed during your stay.
Malelane gate (35 minutes) and Crocodile Bridge gate (20 minutes) are within easy driving distance from the lodge. A daily conservation fee is payable at the gate.
Day visitors are welcome to the Kruger National Park. There is a maximum threshold of visitors that can enter the park daily. If this threshold is reached only visitors with pre-booked overnight accommodation will be permitted access. Such situations tend only to arise in extreme cases such as public holidays and long weekends. Day visitors are not allowed to take any alcohol into the Kruger National Park.

Individual – guests over 18 years of age
Couple – two people over 18 years of age
Family – two adults and children under 18 years of age
Local residents have the choice of buying one of two variants of the Wild Card:
The Bushveld Cluster card, which can be used in Kruger, Mapungubwe, Marakele and Golden Gate;
or The All Clusters card that is valid for all national parks. Foreign nationals also have access to a wild card that works on the same principle, and is valid for all national parks.
