Lethabo Estate accommodation and restaurant
Approx cost: from R850 per person per night
I was flying out of Lanseria airport and the plane banked to the left to turn towards the south (Cape Town flight) I was sitting at the window and saw a number of dirt roads that I thought myself and my wife could explore on the bike. On arriving in Cape Town I immediately went onto Google maps and started looking for a place we could to ride to on the bike. I didn’t find anything but thought we would go and explore anyway.
That Saturday we got on the bike and headed past Lanseria and took the dirt road just after Kromdraai Road. We went exploring and found this gem on the banks of the Crocodile River just behind Lanseria airport. We pressed the buzzer at the gate and was let in by a very friendly voice on the other end who came out and welcomed us after we parked.
The friendly staff member showed us around the restaurant but due to the fact that we did not have a reservation, we unfortunately could not have something to eat there. But the place looked so beautiful and private that we immediately made a reservation for Sunday lunch. We then asked about the accommodation and was shown some brochures of the rooms, and this is when we fell in love with Lethabo.
Lethabo offers the most private accommodation along the banks of the Crocodile river, with private outdoor areas, picnic spots and beautiful views. This is the ultimate weekend getaway for you and your partner to just relax and enjoy the time alone. Each room is designed to give you ultimate privacy and luxury with indoor and outdoor features for those hot summer nights and cold winter days.
We came back for our lunch reservation on Sunday and was treated like we were the only couple for lunch. Exclusive pampering and a table set out on the deck just where we requested it. Drinks were served and we literally felt like the entire spread was set out just for us. Private picnic spots are also available to be booked along the river bank or set up under the trees. This really was a special treat and one we will recommend to friends and will definitely return to again.
