Had an amazing time with my husband there. The picnic was amazing and my husband was blown away by the scenery and the thought behind the outing it helped him relax and we also enjoyed our full body hot stone treatment.

Lovely accommodation, setting and food. Quiet and peaceful. Very surprised to see some big healthy fish in the river. Will definitely be back for another stay in the near future. Have recommended the lodge to family and friends.

We had a beautiful stay at Lethbo Estate. The setting is so unusual. Very romantic with a relaxing and calming environment. The picnic was a novelty and and we loved sitting by the river and letting the stresses of city life fade away. Lise and her team were excellent!

My wife and I visited the venue as it was my wife's birthday gift from my son. We did not stay over as it was a timed picnic offer from 11am to 4pm. The picnic spot was very nice and the food excellent. The facility can be improved by adding a small table with two chairs. We are a couple... More

Our spots are designed for romance and most people love to lie down on the double mattress next to the river. We appreciate though that some people experience back problems so we do also offer spots where we can... More

The place was not clean. The kitchen was overun by ants. The fridge was frozen. The dstv did not work. The electricity went out every time you used the kettle or switched on the bath. The hot water took half an hour to fill a small bath. There were rats or something in the roof of the one bedroom.

Dear Unali, I am shocked and dismayed to hear about your bad experience. Things don’t always run smoothly which is why we are always on hand to assist. I’m only sorry that, as in the case of the kettle which tripped the power, you did not inform us of the dirt you found or the ants that overran you as... More

This place is amazing.... had a romantic picnic. All the stresses of everyday life disappear soon as you step onto the property. The romantic picnic is more than worth it. Staff is extremely friend. I will most certainly b back and recommend lethabo to anyone who will listen. If you are unsure if this place is worth it, let me... More

Thank you for a nice day at the waterfall......the food was excellent, and the location is simply out of this world. We really enjoyed the day, simply doing nothing, resting, reading and enjoying the river.
