Had a really wonderful week long stay at Letaba the week before last (3rd-9th March). As said before, what wonderful staff they have in reception and the shop! The only warning I would like to put out there, is mainly for parents to avoid unhappy kids (and for adults like me who live in slops!) - the lawns appear to be overtaken by paperthorns! - I don't know if this a seasonal occurrence though.

lemonbalm, in December the grass around the pool was full of thorns, at some stage they (camp staff) even cordoned off some of the grass area due to all the thorns, not a good thing when it is so very hot and most people are walking around bare foot around the pool area

Letaba, what a wonderful camp to stay in, we were in tent number 4, on the fence, close to the abultions, close to the pool, wonderful, wonderful drives around Letaba, so wonderful that we have made a booking again for December 2014. :gflower: :k I also need to add that my hubby forgot his wallet and cellphone( with a credit card, a petrol card and R1000.00 in cash) on the bed one morning, we left camp at 4.30 and only returned much later, the cleaning lady had changed the bedding and cleaned the tent and when we returned we found the wallet (nothing missing) and the cellphone still on the bed. We tracked her down and gave her a "reward", she couldn't understand why we were making such a big fuss over a wallet and a cellphone.

:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
Wonderful!

That is true! In Aug I rushed out after a water monitor and was sorely sorry I didn't have shoes on :lol:

I have booked for Letaba over Christmas. I am somewhat more disabled than when I was last on the forum and for the first time am booking disabled access accommodation. I am not yet (and hopefully will not be) in a wheelchair, but walking is slow and painful and I need a secure stick to maintain my balance especially on uneven ground and where there is no hand rail.

Can anyone tell me what the 2 person easy access tent is like in terms of getting in and out and proximity to the bathroom? I can see from the camp map that these tents are not tents with a view but that really is secondary to access at this stage.

Moira, did you have a look at some pics of the CCT2Z tents Here
I am sure someone will advise re the bathroom set up as well.

Moira why don't you change your booking to a 4 sleeper tent. If you book number 8, which is a disabled unit, the bathrooms are right behind the tent. You will also be right on the fence. I stayed in number 7 a few weeks ago and loved it.

Moira, I cannot advise you on a 2 sleeper but I know that tents number 4,5, 6,7,8 (all 4 sleepers) are very close to an ablution block and also on the fence.

8 has a ramp and the rest have steps, depending on yourself which would would be easier. The bathrooms as stated are just behind them where if I recall correctly the 2 bed are a little further from the bathrooms.

The Ablutions for the CTT2 tents did not appear to be set up for accesabilty - no grab rails anywhere and standard narrow toilet and shower cubicles. Unless the CTT2Z has its own bathroom?

P.S. Unless there is another ablution block I didn't see 2 weeks ago, number 20 would be furthest from the tents ablution block. You would probably do better then to drive to the camping ablutions which did at least have a toilet with grab rails etc.

Someone might be able to help you here, but I do know tent 6 - it has a super view onto the fence.

GinaMcAdam, We stayed in tent number 4 in December 2013. right on the fence and so is 5, 6 , 7 and 8. We had hyenas "visiting" every night, tame bushbuck grazing outside our tent every day/night, bird life is amazing in the very early morning and also just as the sun is starting to set. The ablutions/kitchen are a hop, skip and a jump away from the tents. We had such a good experience at Letaba that we are returning for Christmas 2014.
