Hi Crested Val.

She said is close to the turn off where the soccer field is. On the left hand side if you are driving to the Letaba bridge.

Sounds like the hangar for the microlight.

Have you read the entrance permit? Do you KNOW the Conditions of Entry?

Hi Everyone,

Could someone advise me with this one:

We have a CTT4 Tent No.5, along the fence booked for December. Is there anyone that knows if this tent has shade. I was under the impression that all those along the fence had shade, but my SO seems to think that No.5 is the only one along that section that does not .

Many thanks
Tessa

We planned 3 nights in Letaba, what du you think from the unit 17? How far is this from the restaurant and how loud?
We are still undecided what should we take, but what we know is, with view!

Thank you for your help :k :k

Never stayed in that one before Rita, Here is a pic of it and you will see how close it is to the restaurant.
My favourites are either # 29 or 30 or preferably # 64.

#64 is private because it is next to the guest house fence. See my pic just above in a post of mine. Hard to say which has the best view - I always feel those other side of the restaurant are further away from the river, even if the view is more open :hmz:

Hi All,

I am planning a 4 day camping trip for next year.
How is the camping site in Letaba, is there grass or is it more dirt and is there braai facilities at every stand?

Thank you

There will be braai stands at each site Rooster!

Do have a look through Campsites in Kruger where you will be able to pick up some great advice and info.

Here are some pics I took in May this year. There is no grass in the campsite - probably due to the drought.

There are braais for each stand :thumbs_up:

A lovely camping area!

Can't recall there ever being grass in Letaba camping, but it is one of my favorite camps especially when camping. Plenty space so you not on top of each other and trees for shade. Can't go wrong there. :thumbs_up:

RobertT wrote::thumbs_up: I have never seen grass in the camping area, which area of camping part was this? Is this area close to where the CTT4 tents are as that is only area I can think of that might have had grass?

Nope, the tent pic is more 'central', look at the kitchen in the pic behind tent. The other one shows the road behind it. So far from the CTT4 tents.

Some more pics from another of the number of times we camped there when there has been grass. In all the pics (previous and here) I have tried to include 'landmarks' so those who do know the camping area well can see where the pics were taken :thumbs_up:

Note - not current pics - currently Letaba does not have grass in the camping area.
