The area is well known for its large apple-leaf, umbrella thorn and mopane trees. Rare animal species, such as eland, Sharpe's grysbok and roan may be seen. Areas worth visiting include the Engelhardt Dam and the Mingerhout Dam. The gravel road to Olifants Restcamp along the Letaba River provides a beautiful scenic drive on which game is frequently sighted. Areas of interest inside the camp are Elephant Hall, a natural history monument, and Riverside Walk, while outside of camp you may visit the Masorini Ruins, Engelhard Dam and view point, Matambeni bird hide, Mooiplaas picnic site and Mingerhout Dam.
