Project Description

3 Day tour of Lesotho.

A tour of Lesotho should be on everyone’s list. The mountain kingdom of Lesotho is wild and remote and guaranteed to recharge your soul. Our 3 day tours of Lesotho are done in summer and winter. These trips are quite different from each other due to snow and ice in winter and green fields in the summer. Check here to see when we are going to Lesotho again.

Summer is spent enjoying simple mountain lodges.

Warm cosy beds are part of the experience which comes in handy even in summer. You never know what the weather will do high up in the mountains. Day 1 is the same as our 2 day tour driving up Sani pass staying at Molumong lodge.  Same as winter is staying in cosy Molumong lodge. Day 2 is further into Lesotho heading South with lunch overlooking the mighty Orange/Senqu river

After about 4 hours of beautiful mountain scenery we arrive at our lunch spot. It is under huge Poplar trees surrounded by mountains. Nearby is a crystal clear stream so a great place to relax for a bit. After recharging we drive over the spectacular Matabeng pass to arrive at Tomatu lodge.

After supper we sit around the fire solving the worlds problems.

Another option after we drive over Matabeng pass is to stay at Sehlabathebe National park. The views are absolutely amazing as we drive over Matabeng pass and the sand stone cliffs at Sehlabathebe National park are stunning. We often see huge Eland as well as baboons and mountain reed buck here.

From Sehlabathebe National park we drive through rolling hills to exit Lesotho via Ramatseliso gate. Lunch is in the town of Matatiele.
