Nhlanganini Dam is located on the Nhlanganini River in Kruger National Park. It is about a third of the way between Letaba Camp and Phalaborwa Gate. To reach it take the H9 tar road from Letaba Camp and look for the turnoff.

The area around the dam is not the greatest for game viewing but herds of Elephant are often seen. Leopards are recorded from time to time. Hippo and Crocodiles, as well as a variety of birdlife, are normally present.

There is a short gravel road leading to the dam from the tar road. This road takes you to the waters edge so if there is animals at the dam you will get great views of them.
