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.

We are close to many attractions and are super springboard for all sorts of Cradle adventures.

    The stay at Lethabo was amazing. Everything was just stunning. I will tell people about Lethabo. It's on your doorstep and still it feels as if you are far away in Paradise. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!!!

  • Fantastic stay

    Everything was fantastic from start to finish, we had a fantastic stay and we were sorry it was so short. Absoltuely amazing to know that we could go away to a resort so close to home and yet still accomplish the feeling of a holiday far from the hustle and bustle of city life.

  • Tranquility and class

    Our honeymoon in the romantic River Tree Cottage was spectacular, owing particularly to the fantastic setting of the cottage and the superb yet discreet service by Lise, Paul, their talented chef and courteous staff. We're just sorry that we didn't spend enough time there and the stay was so brief. We definitely intend coming back for a longer stay and then we'll make a point of spending much more time enjoying the tranquility of the beautiful surroundings. Bravo, Lise and Paul.

  • Thank you

    We had the most wonderful weekend. Relaxed and spoilt rotten by Lisa and company. The willow tree was amazing and the picnic was superb. Thank you all for a super weekend.
