The idyllic Letaba Rest Camp is situated on a sweeping bend of the Letaba River, midway between the southern and northern boundaries of the Kruger National Park. The name means "river of sand", and the sandy riverbed is an excellent location for game viewing, particularly elephant, which thrive in the area. Letaba is a green oasis in the surrounding mopane veld, and remains a firm favourite with visitors. At night the stars overlook a symphony of sounds. Owls, nightjars, frogs, fruit bats, crickets and cicadas all vie to be heard, until the lion roars, then all are silent.

Chalets and bungalows in varous sizes and styles as well as tents and a big camping site. Our chalet was equipped with the basics - including cups, cutlery, bbq - and a very smelly fridge! The room and bed was comfortable enough, although a little...More

We have enjoyed our camping experience! Clean and spacious facilities available. We were close to the fence and the hyenas, were walking past us looking for something to eat. Although no grass in camping areas, are there plenty of shade and power points available. Some...More

As most say, lovely camp on the river. Learn the chalet code and you'll expect what you get. The monkeys are a real nuisance so leave nothing outside, even in cupboards. Much less traffic in this northern part of the Park. Lots of animals, bit...More

Not sure but as the bungalows are on the side of the hill the view is slightly obscured unless you are on the edge of the river. Lovely camp with a great viewing platform within easy walking distance. Highly recommended. Was... More
