Did you know?
At Lethabo Estate you can exchange your wedding vows under sweeping willows on the banks of the Crocodile River.
Lethabo Estate is set on 150 acres in the Rhenosterspruit Nature Conservancy. There’s a feeling of being deeply immersed in nature, despite it being just a stone's throw from Lanseria International Airport, Johannesburg and Pretoria.
Accommodation at Lethabo is tucked away in different areas of the estate. Here you’ll find a variety of accommodation options; each decorated in its own style with no two the same. Think stone and thatched cottages, ball and claw bathtubs, cobbled walkways, lanterns, wooden decks, chaise longues, outdoor jacuzzis, hammocks, relaxing spa treatments, koi ponds and private spaces for romantic interludes. It’s a tranquil haven where you can rejuvenate and reconnect with your spirit.
Tasty farm-style breakfasts, riverside gourmet picnics and dinners under the stars complete the picture.
Lethabo Estate is the ideal wedding venue for weddings of up to 80 guests. The private Willow Tree Hideaway is the perfect place to spend your wedding night. It's an organic, thatched boudoir with a tree house feel, a sunken jacuzzi and romantic furnishings. Wake up to a romantic breakfast picnic on the banks of the Crocodile River and then take a leisurely stroll around the estate, connect with the horses, and enjoy the views.
Guests can also choose from other accommodation options. There's River Cottage - a two-room stone cottage with a cosy lounge, a fireplace, a double hammock and outdoor jacuzzi. Then there's Rock Pool Lodge complete with wooden deck, private rock swimming pool and jacuzzi spa bath. Or try the The Paddock Suite Guesthouse with its lounge, dining area, fireplace, rock koi pond and swimming pool. Otherwise there's The Stables Cottage, a 3-room, optionally self-catering unit complete with fireplace, jacuzzi and stunning views of the Magaliesberg and Rhenosterkop mountains.
Die Ezindala Farmhouse has been furnished using old collectable, loved and recycled décor in line with Lethabo’s green, "off the grid", sustainable approach. This old colonial-style farmhouse has six en suite rooms, individually themed with recycled treasures. Its outdoor lapa and small conference room are ideal for small wedding ceremonies, conferences and workshops.
