5 Day Tour Lesotho
A 5 day tour Lesotho is a great thing to do.
Lesotho is not just another country. It is another world and is begging to be explored and we can do that on a 5 day tour Lesotho. Famously known as the Kingdom in the sky or the land of the blanket people, Lesotho is all those things and more. Please click here to see when we are doing this trip again. Of course you can also choose your own dates.
Join us for an adventure as we enter Lesotho by the Qachas Nek border. After entering Lesotho we drive to Semongkong. The place of smoke. Here we can abseil the highest commercial abseil down the Maletsunyane falls. Also maybe a spot of fly fishing for wild trout.
We also check out some dinosaur footprints on a walk at Roma where we can either camp or stay in cosy rooms at the Roma trading store.
After an incredible day driving on good tar roads we end up at Katse dam.
This drive shows how mountainous Lesotho really is. We stay at the Katse hotel close to the lovely Katse Botanical gardens. There is also a tour of the Katse dam wall which is about 2 hours long and is interesting even if you are not an engineer.
After all that fun we drive to a lunch stop at the mighty Orange/Senqu river. It is crazy to think that this river still has a long way to go all the way to the Atlantic ocean. Here we have a choice. There is a great 4x4 adventure over Matabeng pass to stay at Sehlabathebe National park where we spend the night. The last day is back into South Africa via Ramatseloso gate. Another option is down the famous Sani pass with the last night staying at Molumong lodge. Then to end up in Pietermaritzburg.
