I got helped out with a last minute request to celebrate my 15th Wedding Anniversary. Lethabo did a great job of saving me from the wrath of my wife. Food came right on time and was perfect for the occasion. Massages were splendid and the setting was spot on. We both loved the memorable experience. It was memorable. Thank you!

Inspirational owner Lise Essberger is one of the most “can do” people I know. A brilliant horse rider who excelled in dressage, she took up fire dancing at age 45, and performed at Sun City, the Seychelles and Abu Dhabi. She might even perform for you, if you ask nicely. I like Lethabo’s laidback vibe and accommodation options that range... More

What brilliant settings, food, privacy and relaxation for a picnic. We were only there for 5 hours and it felt like 2 days. Nice and close to JHB also a bonus!! Only one suggestion - a bottle of water added to the wine bucket.

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
