We spent 5 night at Letaba on our trip to Kruger. We usually spend our time up north. I would like to make special notice of the Letaba staff. They were excellent. Especially the lady's at reception, you would have to travel far to find such good, friendly and helpful service anywhere. Also the staff at the shop made the experience even beter than it already was.

Thank you to everyone there and keep up the great work.

Would appreciate an update if possible

Many thanks


Dear Talltales

Please note that family bungalows (101 - 110) at Letaba are available. This bungalows are always fully booked. We have removed only one bungalow from the system for renovations but the rest are operational.

Hi Stephens.L,

Please have a look here.............Letaba Accommodation Availability

As you can see NO Family units (FQ6) are indicated on the list of accommodation.

It might be a technical problem?? Maybe someone could have a look at this???

Hi .. We stayed in number 109 for 2nights 14/15th October and were not disappointed :thumbs_up:
The bungalow has just been refurbished to a really good standard :clap: Made a change from some
of the older dated ones we stayed at in Berg-en-dal & Satara which I think could benefit
from some TLC :roll: ..

We stayed bungalow 109 earlier this month.
It too had recently been refurbished to a high standard that tourists would appreciate. Bring your own fish if you want to use the fish knives and forks !!!!

I am sure I can be corrected but I believe the Family Bungalows are now listed as the Guest Cottages on the list on the website.

The name is Guest Cottage but the code is actually FQ6.

BG2U No. 17, C circle next to restaurant. Are there plug points, sink in kitchen area of enclosed verandah, and what crocker/cutlery is supplied, or must one use communal kitchen facilities.
BG3U No. 22-24, do these bungalows have normal kitchen facilities ie hotplate etc.
Would really appreciate info.

A happy, healthy and good 2014 to you all.


Seasons greetings to you Fozzis!!!! :thumbs_up:

As far as I know, both those unit types have utensils, but no kitchen, so you will need to use the communal ones.

The units usually have one plug point (plus the aircon plug point if you're desperate!!!)

Hope that helps. :thumbs_up:

Thank you for reply Crested Val.
I am now totally confused. Accommodation Photos link mentions changes to bungalow description.
17-21 were BD2 now BG2U, 22-28 were BD3 now BG3U, but the availability page is completely different, even the photos show bungalows with open verandahs.
We are going to Satara in March, think we will do a visit to Letaba and go and have a look at the bungalows and that reception can sort out the booking codes.
Sanparks should really sort this out and give correct info, we visit KNP every year, done so for years, but I feel sorry for a newbie making a booking only to find it was not what they wanted. AND do not know about the forum, which when we made enquiries about a camp previously got really good advice.

Fozzis, just my one cent's worth of information - If you go to Parks (A-Z) on top of the page, go to Kruger National Park, select Letaba, click on accommodation, and you will find a clear description of what you can expect in every type of accommodation. Furthermore, go to reservations, then you get a list of accommodation types. Hover your mouse on the type of accommodation, and it tells you exactly what you will find in each and every type of accommodation. I really think their information is very complete, correct and clear. :thumbs_up:

Just a warning about the bungalows next to the restaurant. The restaurant will be undergoing renovations during March 2014 and there may be a lot of noise during the weekdays.

The codes that SANParks use for accomodation usually (but not always) can indicate what you would get. So a D tends to mean a kitchenette (hot plate and utensils) whereas G means communal kitchen. U means perimeter (V is view) and E tends to mean enclosed. I'm only aware of Skukuza have enclosed verandas though but I haven't stayed at Letaba for a while.

Hi Fozzis,

Here are some photos of BG2U number 17

And here are photos of BG3U number 23

Both use communal kitchens, but the units have a fridge and utensils. So you"ll have to use the hot plates and sinks at the communal kitchens.

Features:

2 single beds
Aircon
Communal Kitchen
Fridge
No Smoking
Perimeter
Utensils
Wc and shower

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.

We'll see you there! Letaba is our favourite big camp and we do our annual Dads n' Boys trip there regularly.
