We stopped here while staying at Balule to grab some coffee and stretch our legs. Still a lovely camp in the northern parts of the Kruger. If you want to get something from the shop, take note of where it's situated as it's not as...More

I spent three nights here with my two sons and I absolutely loved it. The huts are so clean and well-maintained it was amazing. All the staff were really friendly. And there's so much wildlife, outside and inside the camp. But beware the monkeys in...More

We had a lovely time camping at Letaba camp. Extremely spacious stands, lovely ablutions and kitchen area and were blessed with wonderful animal sightings in and around the camp. The only drawback was a family camped next to us who didn't adhere to the noise...More

About
Description
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 ...More 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. Less

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... More
