Mtomeni Safari Camp

Letaba Ranch, Greater Kruger National Park

Mtomeni Safari Camp is a jewel on the banks of the Great Letaba River, inside the provincial reserve of Letaba Ranch, Greater Kruger National Park. Named after the Jackleberry trees that shade the safari tents, this is the perfect place to sit and watch the game accessing the water below the camp. Offering fully catered and self-catering safari accommodation options in comfortable safari tents, Mtomeni provides an affordable and unique experience as the only safari lodge in Letaba Ranch.

Unfenced from Kruger National Park, Letaba Ranch is well known for its large herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as giraffe sightings. The reserve is also a hotspot for African Wild Dog sightings. Given that the camp is unfenced from the reserve, and on the banks of the Great Letaba River, there is frequent animal activity in the camp at night. For this reason guests are escorted to and from their tents when coming to the communal dining and camp-fire area.
