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.
