This is the perfect place for a private getaway weekend. The river cottage is secluded and private. The food served gourmet style by friendly staff. A real relaxing experience. Advice, if you can take a car with a good ground clearance, otherwise just be patient on the drive to the estate on the gravel road.

We went for 1 night - Otters Hide. What a wonderful experience - Lize and Kelly welcome you with open arms into their little paradise. The views over the Crocodile river are spectacular. We chose to have a "picnic" on our verandah - a 3 course meal was delivered to our room. You want for nothing. If you are looking... More

I ordered the standard picnic for myself and my girlfriend. but it started to rain earlier that morning and it persisted until we arrived - i was worried that the atmosphere would be lost if we were placed somewhere else. but the staff at Lethabo Lodge actually upgraded us to the next package of picnic - free of charge. this...

My fiance, actually no; Husband chose this spot as the first night of our honeymoon and I couldn't have wished for a better experience. We stayed at Willow Cottage and were enthralled by this beautiful unpretentious but romantic place, with river frontage, amazing bird life, exceptional service, friendly staff, yummy food and wonderful attention to detail. You really know how... More

Lovely venue for engagement, however would not suggest it for a holiday. The picnic food is awesome and also a lovely place if you wish to go for a picnic. Food was average, especially breakfast very poor. Friendly and helpful staff! Spa is lovely, however could do with a longer sessions for the price.

Lethabo Estate is the perfect place to relax and enjoy an escape from it all! We stayed at Otters Hide which offers a lovely tranquil view of the river and is a great place to reflect on life while looking out for the elusive shy otters. The food is always excellent and the staff are always available to cater to... More

We have returned to Lethabo over and over enjoying multiple picnics and stayed in 4 of their beautiful cottages. The owner and staff are welcoming, friendly and accommodating. A picnic near the river is the perfect mix of stylish and rustic with the most delicious gourmet food. The setting and picnic layout near the river is sooo romantic, classy and... More
