Accommodation in Kruger National Park
Letaba is located on a river and is surrounded by beautiful Mopane bush with lush riverine trees providing welcome shade. Game viewing from the camp is excellent and the innovative camp staff offer a variety of adventure activities for visitors to indulge in.
The Elephant Hall is a natural history monument. Bushbuck amble carefree across the lawns and amongst the bungalows like a scene out of Disney’s Bambi, while mighty elephant parade the sandy riverbed. 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, when all are silent.Elephant, waterbuck and buffalo are plentiful. Visitors need not even leave the camp to view these animals and lucky visitors have been fortunate enough to witness lion and cheetah kills on the sandy riverbed in front of the restaurant complex.
Letaba Camp has a rich bird population and is particularly good for viewing owls. The Matambeni Bird Hide on the northern bank of Engelhard Dam is an excellent place to watch water birds. Letaba is a riverine camp and well foliated. There is a wonderful selection of trees and shrubs including sycamore fig, impala lily, common coral tree, lala palm and leadwood. The vegetation around the camp is mopane shrubland.Game drives available on request

Climate: Kruger is in a summer rainfall area. The summer months (October to April) are hot and often balmy. Winters are warm and mild, although visitors going on night-drives will require warm clothing.
Handy Hints: Plan your trip – do not try and cover too great a distance. Kruger is a massive tract of land and frequently visitors try to cover too much ground. Slow travel and regular stopping produces much more action than covering a lot of ground. Early mornings and evening time are usually the most productive game viewing periods Remember to bring a camera, binoculars, bird and wildlife reference books, a hat and sunscreen lotion. Also remember to take along medicines such as anti-histamine and lotion for insect stings and bites. Do not leave any food unattended, as thieving monkeys and baboons are a constant threat.
