We stayed in a bungalow type for 3 persons, but it is rather small with the kitchen outdoor, you have to push the fridge to the wall side to "lock" the door and avoid monkey. Somemore, we found bugs dropping from the roof top (as it is dried grass type of roof) multiply times. But the camp people are really... More

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. It is always a good starting point whether you are heading to the southern or northern region of the park. It has a variety of accommodation that suits everyone, whether you enjoy camping or prefer... More

We had a bungalow with shared kitchen with utensils. Had everything we needed. There was even a small pool which was tranquil when I visited. Very well stocked shop. We did the night drive. I think I'd recommend a sunset over that as you get best of both, night drives can be down to the skill of the people (guests)... More

We spent two nights in Hut/chalet # 101 in Letaba last week. It has just been refurbished and is very good; well stocked kitchen (not a kitchenette at all), with gas stove, big fridge with freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster and all the crockery and cutlery you could need - even egg cups and toast racks! There is a lounge/dining room,... More

Stayed here for one night. Restaurant is a well known south-african brand. Service was good ( didn't eat, only drinks ) and the restaurant overlooks the river. Nice spot. Room was a bit run down, could do with a renovation job. Camp itself is in a better condition than Satara and Lower Sabie. Camp shop is well stocked and reception... More

We stayed in unit D32 the EA3U bungalow (3 beds, fridge, air con, basin) which is possibly the best in the camp - something which numerous people who passed our bungalow commented on! The view is amazing from this hut - a perfect view of the river! The only thing is this particular hut is right next to the restaurant... More

This is one of the most attractive camps in the Kruger Park. The bungalows and safari tents are standard national park accommodation, perhaps rather expensive for their quality if regarded purely as accommodation, but they are comfortable and clean. Of course you pay mainly for being in the park, which is magical. There are big shady trees and the camp... More

This camp is conveniently located in the centre of Kruger. We only stayed here one night, but it's worth considering staying longer. Comfy chalet, good restaurant, though a shame that one cannot really see the river.

Staying in Kruger is always a magical experience. As a South African it's soul food! The staff at the book- in were warm and friendly and knowledgeable we felt very welcome. The accommodation is typically Kruger, clean and comfortable. The kitchen utensils were almost non-existent and we had to fry eggs in a cooking pot! No frying pan available, an... More

Letaba rest camp is situated about 2 hours from Phalaborwa gate in Limpopo, the area has plenty of wildlife if you take your time and look hard. When we entered the park we found 3 of the Big five; lion, leopard ( within less than a metre from our vehicle) as well as elephant all around and by the sable... More
