We booked 2 safari tents for 2 families of 4 over a long weekend, so that 2 of us could run the Marakele half marathon. We were so pleasantly surprised to have found Lethabong!

The tents were so comfortable and had every amenity. We loved the plunge pools and dedicated bonfire platform, which was cleaned daily. The attention to detail and friendly, welcoming staff made a real impact.

The waterpark was an absolute hit. It was immaculate and well-maintained. We loved the loungers in the pool, and the kids sampled every slide multiple times. The kids felts safe and free. A game drive in the national park was only 30 minutes away.

Lethabong facilitated such quality family time and relaxing time that we are keen to come back annually. We are so happy we found this getaway just 3 hours from Joburg.

My Husband's family is from Thabazimbi and he choose this location for the celebration of his 60th Birthday. This was all in all one of the best experiences we have had with large group gatherings. Peaceful if you want, really active if you want. The safe environment allowed the adults to relax and let the young ones enjoy the activities under the guarding eyes of the personal. The lazy river and the slides did not disappoint, the Bon-fire at night in th Lap was a hit with the night owls that wanted to visit till very late. The TENTS!!! 5 Star!!

We arrived on time (14:05pm). It was very warm that afternoon. We got to our room and enjoyed the pools view and got excited. The staff were very friendly. The pools and slides are children friendly. Constant communication from the employees to see if everything is good. Daily cleaning of the pools was very impressive. The evening gas-braai at our balcony was cool. Mosquitos? Very minimal singing from them. The bar and the kitchen service were pleasant. A place to recommend to anyone. The location is very remote, which is what you need to re-charge your senses. Lifeguards are very alert. We enjoyed watching the RWC. After our check out, we enjoyed a complimentary day visit.

The overall layout of the lodge is very well planned and will keep the kids busy for the whole day. Campsite B is right across the waterpark and the kids can be watched from your campsite almost. Campsite A is a few meters away from the waterpark. Campsite B sites are big enough including the bathrooms as well, although all the bathrooms on this side did not have any mirrors on the walls and they can install more hooks and maybe a bench or 2.
The little dishwashing stations at each bathroom could also have allowed for a double zink, but only 1 basin available. Very neatly done and enough space to put your dishes below the counter. You just have to bring an extra container or bucket to rinse your dishes.
The allowance of day visitors over the weekend was not too out liking, given that the lodge was almost fully booked. Will unfortunately not return if the allowance of day visitors is not limited or revised during peak weekends and holidays.

One of our worst ever camping trips........Terrible, disgusting and just horrible. The day visitors that is allowed into the premises WILL cause the closure of this Lodge within less than a year. No rules, people allowed to drink inside the pool, lazy river....People allowed to smoke inside at next to the swimming pool and in Lazy river....No security whatsoever to stop this

Staff were rude and unhelpful, apart from the pool all other areas were damaged beyond use. You cannot use normal plug points; rather, only blue camping plugs (not advised or sold on site). The shop was unstocked and WELL over the cost of local shops to the point of extortion. No entertainment at all waist of money!

The lodge is peaceful and beautiful. My favourite things was seeing animals roaming near our tent, the private pool, OMG THE WATER PARK was the best for my 2 year and 4 year old who independently went on the slides, the service offered for washing braii stands every morning and cleaning pool. What I wasn’t impressed by is the cleaning service because it was during a busy time end of December where it was fully booked. The cleaners would get to our tent 5 after 2pm which was extremely frustrating coz beds aren’t made and dishes are dirty

Overall the stay was very pleasant. Tent camp was very neat and clean, staff friendly. Would advise on checking maintenance on lights working, as the Braai light and one outside light did not work. Also to check Utensils, as we only had one pot to make food in. Otherwise we enjoyed the stay.

My stay at the lodge was nice and the staff was welcoming. However, I was robbed off my breakage fee of R500 by a lady called Monica. Monica and her fellow lady colleague at the reception played me for a fool and said the transaction will come through during the week. Today marks full 7 days without receiving my R500. I advice guests to be aware of this lady

We were welcomed at the gate with a smile. The service at reception was professional and friendly. We booked in and was taken to our accommodation. The tent was clean and the setup was very comfortable. The rest of the resort is also very nice and the safety of clients are a priority to the life savers. The game drive was very nice. The overall experience was excellent.
