There are some camps in the park that don’t offer campsites, but luckily, Letaba is not one of them! Letaba has 60 places set aside for tents or caravans, each with a power point for your electronics. Each campsite accommodates up to 6 people per site, and campers will need to share communal ablution facilities as well as communal cooking facilities, except if you are braaing.
Each campsite has a place for gueststo set up a fire and get cooking! The communal cooking facility offers 24 hour boiling water, electric hotplates for those not in the mood to braai and convenient washing up facilities.
Camping is generally more affordable and they are the ideal style of accommodation for anyone wanting to have a rustic park stay.
Huts are one of the most traditional forms of accommodation at Letaba. There are 5 huts available, and each hut has3 bedunits. Guests staying in the huts will have to use the communal ablution facilities available at the camp and they will also have to share cooking facilities.
There are no utensils, cutlery or crockery available with the huts, but you can ask reception about hiring these basic necessities. The huts are equipped with a fan, air-conditioning and a fridge.When booking, you should also be sure to book the hut offering the best view (you can choose between the perimeter huts or the huts with the river view).
It doesn’t get more luxuriously rustic than this. A safari tent is so much more than your average tent, so throw away all of your ideas about tents when you are considering the safari tent. There are 10 safari tents available at Letaba with 2 beds and 10 safari tents with 4 beds. These tents are furnished and theysit up on stilts. Your safari tent will have a fridge, a fan and a veranda.
You will have to make use of the communal bathroom and cooking facilities
Finally, the most luxurious accommodation in the park has to be the guest houses. These houses are located in the best places in the park, with stunning views of the river. Each guest house also has a beautiful kitchen as well as bedrooms and bathrooms. There is also access to limited DSTV channels.
The camp has 2 guest houses; the Melville guest house and the Fish Eagle guest house. The Melville is the larger of the 2, with 3 bedrooms and places for 9 sleepers while the Fish Eagleguest house sleeps 8 guests in 4 bedrooms. The Fish Eagle also has an exclusive bird hide
