Hi STORMA,

I have stayed in BD3. They are just east of the restaurant/cafe with a bit of grass between them and the path along the river.

They are all set a bit back, angled away from cafe. The closer you are to the cafe, the less privacy you get, but they are all very nice.

Just watch out for cheeky brave vervets.

Hi Storma,

Have a look thought the The Accommodation Pics and I am sure you will find some great pics of those units.
Enjoy!

Say "Letaba" and I think of peace, tranquility, Elephant Hall, trees & shady camping ... :) :)

We have just returned from Kruger and Letaba and stayed in the lovely CTT4 safari tents which are new to us since our last visit to the camp. I would recommend for thoes of you who are planning to book these to try and get No`s 4-5-6-7 or 8 as these are on the fence with good animal action any time. You must just watch out for the very short stump like poles uesd to mark off the parking bays as you could trip over them in the dark. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

My wife and I will be visiting Letaba in April and I have booked a BG2U Bungalow. I have looked on the map and on Roanerics excellent thread and I cannot find this type anywhere. I presume they are perimeter Bungalows but we really did not want an enclosed verandah. Can anyone help me as to there location?
Thank you for an excellent forum

Grasha,

I've stayed in a BG3U before and found that other accommodation is better. The BG units are on the perimeter, but you are cage in and no proper braai area. You also need to use a communical kitchen to wash up dishes and cook, where you may find that the hotplates are not working or you have no idea of the setting.

We had a bookings fpr two days at Letaba and the next day moved to a BD3Z unit costing the same price as the perimeter rondavel, but much more space and a kitchen area with a lovely stoep to braai on. The BG3U rondavels are on the perimeter west of the restaurant and close to the education centre (olifant museum).

The BD3Z rondavel was behind the BG3U unit and although not on the perimeter the same distance to walk the lookout point and shop.

Considering that you pay the same (R845) for a BD2, BD3, BD3Z, BG2U and BG3U I would rather book the BD3Z unit or BD3 unit. From the accommodation pics it looks as if the perimeter rondavels are not recently upgraded as in the case of the BD units.

I am booking online and have a decision to make between type BD3U (which it says clearly is on the perimeter) and FQ6 (which doesn't say anything about being on the perimeter).

There are 3 of us (one child) so FQ6 is clearly more spacious. How different are the views? Can I request any particular cottage while booking online? (on the map 101, 105, 106 and 110 seem closer to the perimeter - but it's not clear that all of these are FQ6 (apart from messages on this forum) or that I will get any of these.

Hi dk105001,

A warm welcome to the forum.

Have a look here and here for photos on some of the FQ6 chalets. The view photos there do show the river.

You can look on the index of Accommodation photos for more accommodation info.

On the online booking system it is not possible to ask for a specific number. You need to contact the camp a few weeks before you will arrive to ask if you could possibly have a specific unit, but it is not guaranteed.

Enjoy your stay......... :thumbs_up:

Hi there and welcome to the forum. :D

The BD3U units are numbers 39-64. Here you can see it on the map.

Have a look at some pictures of the units. We always stay in the BD3U units and number 63 here and here is our favourite. This year we will stay in 64 and that one is very private and at the end.

Evening all, off to Kruger in a couple of weeks and was wondering, can anyone tell me which of these furnished tents at Letaba have a perimeter view ??? I know the ones at Thamboti (staying there as well) pretty much all have perimeter views but not sure about Letaba :?

8,9,10 are on perimeter and imo the best. I stayed in 8 in Dec and was a bit concerned in that it is close to pool, but the guys put chemicals in pool at about 8pm every night in Dec and there were not many people willing to swim after that.
Only drawback is Dec is hot and the fan just doesn't cut it and is noisy.

Number one is an internal tent, if you start at the road the tents are in a circle of sorts. Going clockwise around 1 is first up, 8 is the corner one by fence and closest pool, then I think 9 and 10 could be inside on pool side.
