Reviews for Letaba River Lodge
Lovely place away from city where roaring lions keep you up at night. Tranquil and exciting
mmm a very nice place for weddings, party and fit for all functions is a vacation on the other hand because there's also Leopard, Lions and many more.
It just looks exotic when you get there. It's very nice
Came to view the animals. Well looked after. Had a good well prised drink at the bar afterwards.Would love to try the 1kg Kalahari steak for R175. Hopefully next time.
"STAY AT LRL"
I had a pleasant stay at LRL, the place was very clean, comfortable and the food was delicious. I wanted to take on a game drive but missed it and will be definitely be going back there.
I enjoyed every moment there especially game viewing 4 star
Recommended for return visit. Animals are in good shape.
Enjoyed a relaxing meal with good friends. Saw all the animals, feeding of the lions & tigers. Very enjoyable indeed.
Hospitality. Beautiful place to be. You will also enjoy watching lions .Place to be
We had a national training camp hosted at the lodge. The food was really good. The rooms were comfortable and the staff efficient and friendly.
" Stunning hideaway "
Such a stunning little hide away place. Rooms is nice and spacious. The quietness and the sounds of the lions and tigers makes it a very relaxing atmosphere. Definitely will return and recommend them to other friends.
Beautiful hotel only if you have a 4 x 2.
Letaba River Lodge has a lot to offer. You drive in with a well maintained gravel road. As you get to the gate you can feel the excitement bubbling inside of you. The first thing you see is a row of large lion enclosures. When I drove in I was lucky enough to see two lions pairing. The reception was friendly and the room was neat, well furnished and had a great view. The view could be seen from a balcony where I could stand for a long time and listen to the roar of the lions.The service at the restaurant was friendly, but a little slow. The food was delicious and the plating beautiful. There is a swimming pool, braai area, wedding and convention facilities.I went to the lion park in the morning, there I could see a variety of animals. There are (white and brown) lions, (siberian, bengal and white) tigers, caracals, coati and a few other animals.For R100 extra you can enter some of the enclosures with a ranger. The animals that I interacted with were; 3 month and 1.5 year old lions, adult and baby caracals, coati and one or two others.All in all it was a great stay, with memorable moments.
Nice place to visit. It really enjoyable. Most of the wild animals are available
Love it enjoy the animals beautiful place friendly and capable staff the juice was delicious thanks
One of the best places in town. The place is beautiful and very exciting from the moment you enter the premises you just know that you are going to have a lot of fun there.
