Wow - my favourite restcamp in Kruger thus far!!! Saw 3 different sighting of Leopard in one day, 2 of which was on a Sanparks night drive and one of which was a mother and 2 cubs!!!
We heard a lion kill one morning, and everyone in the camp jumped into their cars to try and find it. The accommodation was, as with the other Sanparks accommodation, clean and adequate for our purposes. Pictures on the internet are accurate. The "proximity" to the Phalaborwa gate afforded us the opportunity to stock up on supplies at Woolworths and Spar. The camp shop was very well stocked, but we decided to make the trip anyway - prices in the park quite high compared to outside. Plus the drive meant we could see game en route. We saw a Leopard!!!!!
A good vibe and atmosphere!! Hoping to go back...
- 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
