There is plenty Komatipoort accommodation in the actual town of Komatipoort, as well as in the surrounding Komatipoort areas.  Komatipoort accommodation is mostly in the form of self catering farm cottages, Komatipoort guest houses and bed-and-breakfast establishments.

A new nine-hole golf course provides a wonderful view of the adjacent Kruger National Park. Komatipoort is only 8kms from the Crocodile Bridge Gate to the Kruger National Park, and just 3kms from the border crossing into Mozambique at Lebombo.

Komatipoort is known locally as the village where people and nature live together in perfect harmony. A short drive from Komatipoort accommodation lodges lies the site of the airplane crash where Mozambique's President Samora Machel died. This Komatipoort site is now a National Monument.

History
Komatipoort was first established in 1890 by a Dutch railroad company which constructed the railway from the Mozambique border to Pretoria. Komatipoort takes its name from "the meeting of the Komati", or the place where the Crocodile and Komati Rivers meet before flowing away into Mozambique behind the Lebombo Mountains. Malaria was a major problem in those days, as it is today in the Lowveld, and caused the death of many railroad workers. Komatipoort is now the main rail and road link between South Africa, and both Swaziland and Mozambique.

Komatipoort Accommodation - Kruger National Park accommodation seekers often find themselves in Komatipoort.  Komati River accommodation options allow for sightings of hippo, crocodile and  birdlife from some of the actual Komatipoort riverfront lodges. Because of the influx of European and American tourists, Kruger National Park accommodation is at a premium, especially in towns like Komatipoort that offer easy access to the main Kruger National Park gates, and sought after upmarket Kruger Park accommodation which is generally graded by The Star Grading Council of South Africa. Affordable Kruger Park self catering accommodation can be found in some of the South African Parks Board camps and lodgings. These campsites are often fairly rustic, and offer very basic self catering accommodation in the Kruger Parks.

Komatipoort Bed & Breakfast / Guest House accommodation should certainly be the preference, for longer stays, book Komatipoort Self Catering accommodation. The Komatipoort accommodation owners will also assist with information relating to Kruger Park tourist activities such as Kruger Park game drives, and Kruger Park elephant rides etc in the surrounding areas.
