The Kruger National Park is about 2 km away as the crow flies, and the Crocodile Bridge Gate entrance a 14 km drive. The main attraction of Komatipoort is its close proximity to the Kruger Park.
For the nature-lovers, this unique riverside garden is a hive of bird-activity. From Fish Eagles, Trumpeter Hornbills, Puple-crested Turacos, Paradise Flycatchers and many other flycatcher and sunbird species, Green Pigeons, Tambourine doves, Grey-headed bush shrikes, Heuglin's Robins, various cuckoos.
Pygmy , Malachite, Woodlands, Brown-hooded, Pied and Giant kingfishers are all visitors here, and of course the wading-birds including the lovely Goliath Herons and various kinds of geese. Added to that are the occasional hippo, many crocodiles, river otters, dwarf mongoose, vervet monkeys, and fortunately only very rarely the odd stray buffalo or elephant from the Kruger Park.
To avoid having our guests getting stuck in the mud in the rainy season, we have just added a wooden walkway down to the deck on the riverfront.
We hope that this will encourage more guests to enjoy the lovely riverfront close up from the deck, out of the reach of opportunistic crocodiles!
Enjoy a sun-downer from the deck, or bring your fishing rods to try your luck!
