4 Day Overland Winter 4×4 Tour of Lesotho (11-14 Jul 2025)

Destination

Winter tour of Lesotho

We are doing an amazing 4 day overland 4×4 Winter tour of Lesotho in July. During the day we check out an amazing landscape where hardy shepherds tend their sheep. The evenings are spent sitting next to a warm fire talking about the day. Join us in your 4×4 or ours!

Lesotho isn’t just another country, it is another world!

This time we are going in winter for a very different country we saw in the summer. Now the land is icy and cold as we sit next to a warm fireplace. Read a bit more about Lesotho on our destinations page.

2 Day tour of Lesotho.
We visit the highest pub in Africa on our 2 day tour of Lesotho.

On this trip through Lesotho we stay in cosy mountain lodges every night.

We will leave Pietermaritzburg and drive up the famous Sani pass. We have to stop for a visit in the highest pub in Africa for lunch and a drink. Then it is further into Lesotho with a 4×4 drive over Black mountain. We get to 3250m above sea level so the views are amazing. Another hour of driving and we arrive at our overnight stop. Highland lodge at Mokhotlong is a simple, but lovely place to stay.

Next up is a visit to the highest dam in Africa.

Day 2 is a fun 4×4 drive as we explore the Kao mine road. After leaving Highlands we turn off the boring tar road for some adventure. This is a stunning drive over and around endless mountains. The whole day is about a 5 hour drive and on the way we really see how really mountainous Lesotho is. It is like time stood still here. We have lunch with a view surrounded by endless mountains and eventually arrive at our lodge for the night. Motebong lodge is a lovely spot on the banks of Katse dam surrounded by mountains.  I love cooking and we enjoy a good South African braai while enjoying the peaceful mountain views.

After breakfast in the lodge we head off towards Semongkong. This lodge has lots to offer. From the highest commercial abseil in the world to a donkey pub crawl to a visit with a lovely lady who talks about the interesting Basotho culture. Well worth a visit.
