About Lethabo Estate

Lethabo has very different types of award-winning accommodation. We have a mobile Spa available which means, depending on the suite or room you choose, treatments can be enjoyed privately there or next to the river. We also offer riverside and evening picnics, Fire Dancing shows, private or for groups and lessons for fun. We offer Horse Whispering Join Up and Game drives at the nearby Lion and Rhino Park.

Our guesthouse has five double en-suite rooms, each with its own private balcony with the views of the surrounding Nature Reserve. Our Willow Tree Lodge is a lover’s haven, a thatched "A" frame structure on stilts, with a sunken Jacuzzi spa bath, loads of candles, and a double hammock on the water’s edge.

Our meals are a masterfully prepared delight and are our romantic picnics are sublime. While dining in our gourmet restaurant, overlooking our dam, and the wrap around views of the nature reserve, we will indulge you with our uniquely South African cuisine.

Choose from our seasonal menu which includes Amarula Honey Mustard Chicken, served in a crispy poppadom, a specially aged Beef Fillet rolled in cracked black pepper and served with a pearl onion and black cherry sauce, Wild Chilean Salmon lightly seared with creamy gorgonzola, Baby Karoo Racks of lamb marinated in a Hanepoot, chutney sauce and served with a mushroom and peppadew reduction, all accompanied by a medley of traditionally slow roasted Mediterranean organic vegetables.
