October Torch Winners: Kruger warden helps injured ellie
For the past two months, we’ve asked you to send us your stories of parks staff who went the extra mile to make your trip brilliant. Your reward? The chance to win a R399 solar-powered torch from Lumi LED Lights, for you and the staff member.
Our October winner shows how one Kruger game warden went the extra mile to help an elephant in distress. Thanks to Ina Holtzhausen for this touching story.
Letaba tops for kids
“Elephants flew…” says Kirsty Redman of Letaba camp in the Kruger National Park. She is remembering the return of the elephant statue that spent four years in rehab, and not a Dr Seuss invasion of the riverside camp. Samantha Hartshorne tells us more.

Every year music lovers gather for a weekend of captivating classical performances in a spectacular setting: Kruger National Park. KIrsty Redman describes this unforgettable event, which was held in Letaba in September and October.
Service with a smile
We got back to our rondavel at Letaba camp in time for lunch, only to find a delegation of four khaki-clad Parks staff exiting and locking the door behind them.
Kruger's day visitor areas
Day visitors to most of the Kruger National Park’s main camps now have the option of taking a break in one of the excellent day visitor areas. I have recently visited the facilities at Satara, Letaba and Skukuza. They all come highly recommended.
Die vyfde grootste ruskamp in die Krugerwildtuin is ideaal geleë op die suidelike oewer van die kronkelende Letabarivier. Dit kombineer stilte met genoeg blyplek en baie geriewe. Geen wonder dit is menige gesin se gunstelingkamp nie.
