Media Release: Fire breaks out at the Letaba Shop
10 September 2020

Kruger National Park (KNP), management today confirmed that a fire broke out from the shop storeroom at Letaba Rest Camp and completely gutted the shop as well as the staff television room yesterday, 9 September 2020 in the evening at around 20:00.

Staff members at Letaba and Olifants as well as the fire and rescue team from Phalaborwa managed to contain the fire before it could spread to other structures linked to the shop building, but the shop and staff television room could not be saved.

Reacting to the news, the Managing Executive of KNP, Gareth Coleman said "we are grateful that no life was lost and no staff nor visitors sustained any injuries. We also extend our gratitude to the staff and emergency services team who contained the fire and prevented it from spreading to other structures".

Guests who have bookings at Letaba must for now bring own basic necessities until such time that a temporary shop has been set up. The cause of the fire is still being investigated and an update will be provided in due course.
