Southern Kruger is bordered in the South with the Crocodile River. There are two main entrance gates to Kruger in the South. The one being Malelane gate and the other Crocodile Bridge. Elephant Walk Retreat is situated 50 metres from Crocodile Bridge Gate.

The main rest camps in the South of Kruger are Skukuza , Lower Sabie, Crocodile Bridge, Pretoriuskop and Berg and Dal.

In Southern Kruger you are likely to see the big 5. A Term which refers to the 5 most dangerous animals to hunt. The big 5 comprises of:






The most dangerous animal in Africa, the one responsible for most deaths are actually the Hippo but it is not included in the Big 5 because after being shot it tends to run into the water and not attack.

Kruger and more particularly southern Kruger offers so much more than the big 5.

One may be lucky enough to see wild dog or cheetah, both very rare in Kruger yet frequently spotted in the Crocodile Bridge area.
