Letaba Camp is set on the banks of the Letaba River in the Kruger National Park. One can enjoy a drink or meal at the restaurant complex and get amazing views over the broad river bed.

While staying at or visiting the camp it is worthwhile visiting the Letaba Elephant Hall which has some amazing exhibits of, and information on, the African Elephant.

Letaba Camp is situated in an area of bush that is dominated by Mopane trees. This is not great for game viewing but there are plenty of Elephants around. If you drive north from the camp on the tar road it opens up and offers better game viewing opportunities.

Letaba is a big camp and has plenty of accommodation. This ranges from campsites to safari tents, bungalows, guest houses and more. There is a restaurant and shop and take-aways may be ordered.
