We stayed here as a celebration of our anniversary and it was amazing! Lise, went out of her way to ensure that our strict dietary requirements of halaal were being taken care of, and the fish and vegetarian food option was divine. Our chosen room was the rock pool lodge and was spacious and beautiful. Thank you Lethabo Estate for...

Lethabo Estate is ideal for a quick romantic getaway out of JHB, only a 45min drive. The picnic spots next to the crocodile river makes or a beautiful scenic escape. Service was good and it is truly real value for money.

The property looks beautiful and the setting on the river is lovely. The accommodation is nice but we had some issues with details that should really have been far better at a 4 star establishment charging the prices that Lethabo Estates charges. We found the R350 per head evening picnic (without any drinks) not good value for money. There was...

We went for an incredible couples massage followed by a manicure and pedicure. Thereafter, they took us on a canoe across to the most romantic picnic spot I have ever seen - movie type quality! The food was incredible and the hospitality really made it so special. Thanks to everyone at Lethabo who made it so special

Great place for a chilled out Sunday lunch I proposed to my wife at Lethabo so it is definitely a romantic location for us! We had a lovely table for two and the food was excellent and the service very good. If I was being finicky I might rate one short of excellent because the baked Brie hadn't melted in...

We attended a Luxury Romantic Picnic at Lethabo Estate. The venue was absolutely beautiful. The picnic basket had sooo much food that we ended up taking some home for supper. The picnic table and bed were laid stunningly. It was completely private as everything including drinks are preplaced in the baskets and cooler bag. The only Critique I have was...
