This was our last stay over before leaving the park. The rondavel on the perimeter was up to standard but the monkeys make the outside kitchen a place to consider crime levels. Make sure that everything is locked away. (Not only food) As the little...More

We stayed in a rondavel which was adequately equipped with its own braai/bbq and car parking space we stocked up the fridge but had to barricade it as monkeys are a bit sneaky the restaurant was ok with friendly staff would recommend anyone to stay

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

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
