The Letaba camp for me is the most beautiful of all the rest camps within the Kruger National Park. Lots of trees, big camp sites and the resident Bush bucks wandering around the camp. Camp sites aren't specifically mark so you can choose the best location for your group when you get there. I would recommend that your take decent length power extension cords as the power points might be a bit further than usual from where you would like to camp. Also, most of the camp sites are on a fine dirt surface so take extra ground sheeting with to make your stay a bit more comfortable. The camp has a nice walking path running along the fence, on the rivers' side, all the way from the camping area to the restaurant. The food at the restaurant is of a good standard. Be sure to grab at least one drink at the restaurant as you have a beautiful view over the Letaba river. The shop in the camp is also well stocked.

Ok, sure it's dated, no WiFi and the restaurant is nothing to write home about. It is clean, safe and has all you really need to enjoy the bush. The Letaba River Bridge nearby is worth it as you allowed out of your vehicle! It's all about the wildlife, we saw cheetah, jackals and other amazing animals. Had a bush baby in the tree above our cabin! The shop and the tusker museum add to the amenities of the camp. Bring your own food and drinks and you will have a great time.

Room tip: Close as possible to the river

Letaba restcamp is beautifully located on the Letaba river. However, the Mug and Bean restaurant was closed including the beautifull terrace, although the river walk itself remains beautifull.The tented restaurant was not an acceptable alternative and the service was slow. Our bungalow (BD3U) was a bit outdated. The shower area was very cramped as was the outside kitchen. Just outside the camp we saw 2 male lions at the other side of the river, which itself was disappointingly devoid of animals except crocodiles. Letaba is halfway Satara and Shingwedzi and therefore an interesting stop for those who want to visit the northern part of the Kruger.

Stayed 8-11 May, for three nights, privately.

We stayed in a fve-bed unit on the riverbank, complete with a large kitchen and lounge. The units are fantastic!

This restcamp is situated on the banks of the Letaba River, with easy access from Phelabora Gate. This is a big, tree-filled camp, with a nice "tusker" museum, and also a great deck overlooking the Letaba River. The deck is occupied by a rather dysfunctional restaurant, with unattentive waiters and waitresses and a lot of unavailable items on the menu. One can pick up 3G reception at Letaba on the South African roaming networks, but, there is no WiFi.

Room tip: Take a larger, five-bed unit.

Dipped into the Kruger for a single overnight stop. Just enough time to realise it was nowhere near enough time to even sample this awesome piece of wilderness. Definitely a full week trip next time.
Checking in is a trial and despite being polite enough, the reception team are not quick or overtly helpful. The security Team at Park Entrances were very nice.
