Flora and Fauna
Most of the Kruger National Park’s larger mammals can be seen in the Letaba vicinity, although it is not good rhino country. However elephant abound, particularly in the Letaba riverbed itself. Waterbuck and buffalo are also plentiful.
Visitors need not even leave the camp to view these animals and lucky visitors have been fortunate enough to witness lion and cheetah kills on the sandy riverbed in front of the restaurant complex. The camp itself hosts a healthy population of bushbucks who have become very tame and wander freely amongst the bungalows. Other camp residents include tree squirrels, fruit bats and vervet monkey; which must always be considered before leaving food unattended.
Letaba is a riverine camp and well foliated. There is a wonderful selection of trees and shrubs including sycamore fig, impala lily, common coral tree, lala palm and leadwood. The vegetation around the camp is mopane shrubland.
