We stayed in one of the safari tents for 2 nights, they're pretty basic with 2 single beds, fridge, closet and side table with a table and chairs on the decking and a braai. The washrooms and communal cooking area was less than a minutes walk away.
The tent is an ok size we got both our bags in and had room to spare on the floor but the ward robe filled up pretty quick. the beds were comfy and clean but the floor could have done with a bit of a mop.
Sitting on the decking let us see the amount of wildlife that was in letaba most easy to spot were the monkeys which they warned us about but we also saw bush buck, frogs, birds and even a monitor lizard so be careful what you leave around. My main concern with the animals was snakes getting in through the small holes in the corner of the tents.
Overall I liked this camp and would go back again but maybe try one of the huts instead.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
