                                              What a hidden Gem... The service was great, the scenery, beautiful, even in winter. If you feel like breaking away from the hustle and bustle of JHB without travelling too far, this is the ideal place!Don't forget the food. It was amazing. As for the picnic, its a must!

                                              I needed to find a place near Joburg for a last minute night away for my wife and I. I booked the night on SafariNow and received immediate confirmation. This was followed up by a call from the venue to confirm details including arranging a wondering dinner picnic in our room. The venue is very beautiful on the banks of the river and even though it is winter, it has a lovely charm and atmosphere. The food and service were excellent and its a great romantic getaway for those looking for a rustic and charming venue like this. We definitely will be back!

                                              I was fortunate enough to have been a guest at Lethabo Estate this weekend. We were made to feel at home from the minute we arrived and have been spoiled and pampered by Lise and her team. We were in the Kingfisher Suite with a view of the river and spent the afternoon just sitting and admiring the view. Dinner was sublime and having dinner while sitting outside in a relaxed atmosphere was just what we needed. I can highly recommend Lethabo Estate and dinner is an absolute must! It is a place where you can recharge and feed your soul.

                                              The estate is conveniently located and the surroundings is beautiful. The food at Lethabo is excellent! But we were disappointed in the chaos while we were there. It is an expensive stay, and we felt that the attention to detail, were definitely lacking.
