Letsatsi Lodge Venue & Steakhouse
Wedding & Conference Venue
Letsatsi Lifestyle Lodge your All-in-One dream wedding destination. The wedding facilities include a beautiful historic Church, exclusive use of the reception hall & facilities, an on-site honeymoon suite and accommodation for your guests. We take great pride in our beautiful church, unique to this venue, a modern reception hall, and accommodation for all your guests and additional venues for pre-wedding functions.
Letsatsi is famously known for its historic church which came as an assignment to Bishop Odilon Fages in early 1926 to establish, under his leadership, a Roman Catholic mission station at Vanrhynsdorp. During 1927 a church and school building was built and completed. It was decided to build a new church, as the churchgoers increased dramatically because of natives and families settling at the mission station. Father Lazarus and members of his congregation were building the facilities, and on November 25, 1951, the new church building was inaugurated.
