The riverside picnic is also so romantic and the staff go all out to...

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...

Our Willow Tree Lodge is a lovers haven, a thatched "A" frame structure on stilts, with a sunken jacuzzi spa bath, loads of candles, and a double hammock on the waters edge.
