Stayed here for one night with teen son on month tour of Southern Africa. We liked this camp and stayed in one of the bungalows which was spacious, comfortable and clean. Enjoyed the Elephant Museum and a terrific and quite long night drive seeing leopard, hyena, elephant. Beautiful views of Letaba River as you walk around the camp with lots of game all along the river. During our stay, the main restaurant was being remodeled so they had set up an outdoor restaurant where we had several very good meals with good service.
- 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
