We spent two nights two nights in a wheelchair accessible bungalow at Letaba, although listed as being on the camp perimeter it was a few yards away and you could not see the river from the bungalow itself (unlike our tent at Lower Sabie). The accommodation was spacious, simply furnished but reasonably comfortable. Food at the camp restaurants is reasonably priced but not great quality so it is worth self catering.
The camp was actually the most expensive accommodation of our entire 2 week trip but offered the least apart from the invaluable location, location, location of being in the centre of the Kruger!
- 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
