Mtomeni Safari Camp

Letaba Ranch, Greater Kruger National Park

TFPD no longer manages any of the African Ivory Route camps. They are run directly by their owner co-operative and remain wonderful places to visit. This information remains online for traveler and trade information.  Please contact directly for the latest information.

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.

Experience Letaba Ranch

Visitors to Mtomeni Safari Camp have access to game drives, or guided walks in the morning and the evening. The reserve’s “No self-drive” policy means that guided game drives give guests an opportunity to see both the river areas along the Great Letaba, as well as into the Mopani veld of Letaba Ranch.
