Komatipoort Accommodation

Average guest rating: Not Yet Rated

Elephant Walk Retreat is set on the Crocodile River on a tranquil estate at the Crocodile Bridge entrance gate to the Kruger National Park. We are no more than 50 meters from the gate. We are the number one destination for people wishing to visit Southern Kruger and stay just outside the park. The Southern Kruger National Park area at Crocodile Bridge arguably offers the best Game Viewing in the whole of Kruger.

A comfortable four-hour drive from Johannesburg, Elephant Walk is the perfect "stopover" on route to Mozambique, or as a destination. This superb little retreat caters for the discerning tourist and business traveller.


The main bedroom is en-suite and has a king size bed as well as a double fold-out sleeper in the same room. There is a 42" big screen TV including DsTV in the main bedroom. Big glass sliding doors lead out onto the open-air deck and kitchen area. There is no indoor Lounge area. There is seating on the deck with unsurpassed views over the Kruger Park and the Crocodile River from the bedrooms. The 2nd Bedroom is also air-conditioned and has two single beds en-suite. Big glass sliding doors lead out onto the open-air deck. There is an unsurpassed view over the Kruger Park and the Crocodile river.

There is a private patio under thatch deck with a well-equipped kitchenette. Fantastic Kruger Park and river view. Elephant and buffalo come to within 2 metres of the deck. Lion sightings very close-up is not an uncommon sight either. Kills have been made less than 15 meters from the cabin quite a few times. Serviced Daily.

Please note:

Accommodation is self-catering, but we are situated just outside the Crocodile Bridge Gate where there is a small shop with basic provisions: Wood, sodas, wine, beers, sweets, bread, milk etc.
