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 more
