Dipped into the Kruger for a single overnight stop. Just enough time to realise it was nowhere near enough time to even sample this awesome piece of wilderness. Definitely a full week trip next time.
Checking in is a trial and despite being polite enough, the reception team are not quick or overtly helpful. The security Team at Park Entrances were very nice.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

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. ... more less
