The picnic and setting was perfect. Just you, your partner and the sound of the waterfall. The food was lovely too,... particularly their honey roasted chicken and the salmon. Friendly, helpful staff as well. We loved every bit of it.read more

The restaurant was mediocre. Service and food needs attention. We waited 30 minutes to be seated as the table was not... set yet. The food was bland and cold. We sent back a chicken curry because it was cold. We ordered tea and that took 20minutes because the waiter got distracted. Some things in the place also need to be attended to.As well as the general service delivery of waiters and manager. The bathrooms also need to be attended to, for hygienic purposes. This was unprofessional and an unpleasant experience.read more

Leon and I would like to thank you so much for all the assistance in making our day PERFECT. We wish to thank the staff... for their professionalism and working behind the scenes to ensure that our guests were catered to with a 10 star treatment not even 5 stars. The venue is beautiful, yes, but the staff and management of the Lethabo Estate add that extra personal touch. The wedding was by far the best experience of our lives and thank you to Lise & Monique for making it that way. We will definitely see you again soon. Love and light to you all Niketa&Leonread more

We stayed at the Kingfisher river lodge for the weekend of the 9th to 11th of April. Thank you, Lise for a most amazing... romantic weekend and special celebration. You and your staff made it extra special and we enjoyed every minute in our secluded spot next to the tranquil river. The supper and breakfast were delicious and our own private picnic at our lodge was unbelievable. I can recommend Lethabo River Estate for their exceptional service and attention to detail. Many thanks.read more

My husband and i went here for a riverside picnic. The experience was wonderful. The staff were professional and... friendly. The food wasn't bad. I will note that the hay in the boma had mold growing underneath it, granted it's a result of all the rain over the course of the past few weeks, however this was something that I feel should have been dealt with prior to our visit.read more
