Then on to Number 10 Riverside for an introduction to Basotho Culture, a visit an Ngaka “traditional healer” and the artefact house. The day ends at St James Mission for dinner and overnight.

Once we reach St Theresa’s we will meet Father Gabriel who will give us a comparative look at western versus traditional medicine, from a Roman Catholic point of view. We take a short drive to Mashai Guest Lodge for dinner and to overnight.

We stop for lunch in the “gardens” next to the river, we see ancient rock art and view the rare Spiral Aloe. We then travel through to Sehlabathebe National Park where we have dinner and overnight.
Day 4 Before and after breakfast we have time for a walk in the awesome park, viewing spectacular natural sandstone arches and unique plant life. We then head back to Underberg via Ramatislitso Gate border post and through the Eastern Cape, stopping for lunch along the way or in Underberg.
