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.

"Ons honeymoon verblyf"

Ons het 2 nagte hier oor geslaap en die kamer was rerig 'n plesier om in te bly. Dit is baie netjies in gerig en toegerus. Ons het darm nie so warm gekry nie maar lugreeling sal n groot verskil maak aan die kamers. ons kom weer, ons wil nog die vlot uittoets!

Nice place - would like to stay there again, but won't be interested if the room is not cleaned.
