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.

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

The camp itself has a restaurant - same restaurant and meh as most other major camps - with a good a la carte menu. Depending on what kind of accommodation you’re getting though it’s always a great idea to self-cater so that you can sort yourself out for the drives through the Park. There’s a shop in the camp where you can buy all you need (or bring in from somewhere else). Dinner can then be a great African braai/BBQ, or the restaurant if you prefer (we prefer the former).

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
