2 Day Tour of Lesotho
2 day tour of Lesotho
For a 2 day tour of Lesotho we head up the scenic and amazingly rugged Sani Pass. This is a 4x4 route entering the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho.
Of course we have to stop in at Sani top for a drink in the highest pub in Africa.
On the way we stop over at a local Basotho homestead. Here we sample some home made bread and can try out some home brew. There is also a sheep shearing shed nearby that is quite something to visit. They do everything by hand but is dependent on the seasons.
Then it is up and over the highest road pass in Lesotho. Black mountain is 3250m above sea level so the views are amazing. Weather permitting we have a picnic lunch here.
After lunch we wind our way down the valley and a right turn on our way to stay at Molumong Lodge for some true Ba'Sotho hospitality.
For the energetic we can squeeze in some pony trekking or a stroll around the hills. After a busy day we must have a typical SA braai while watching the sun go down over an amazing mountainous country.
Finally on day 2 we have to leave this beautiful country where time stood still.
