A five day experience with Mokhotlong Hotel in Lesotho, including pony rides, river walking, picnics, hiking and cultural experiences.
Day 1 – Pony Ride: The viewing spot is on the furthermost point of a vast outcrop, with a dramatic drop into the valley below. Up here a single moment seems to go on forever. You can enjoy a quiet picnic with your favourite bottle of wine or just enjoy the moment in this truly untouched piece of heaven. Arrangements can be made through Mokhotlong Hotel.
Day 2 – Hiking: Thabana Ntlenyana is about 25 kilometres east of Mokhotlong (as the crow flies) and is the highest peak in Southern Africa, standing at 3482m above sea level. A round trip hike to Thabana Ntlenyana can take a full day. We offer a range of Thabana Ntlenyana hiking experiences which can be tailored to suit your needs. Packages include accommodation, guides (by prior arrangement), a light lunch and transport.
Day 3 – River Walking: The Mokhotlong river snakes its way around the small town of Mokhotlong. In the summer months there are plenty of rock pools to enjoy. Its an easy 30 to 45 minute walk to the banks of the river and back along a quiet trail.
Day 4 – Cultural Experiences: There are a variety of day-oriented Basotho cultural activities that take place throughout the year. One can soak up the Basotho culture in one of the villages surrounding Mokhotlong in an experience filled with singing, dancing, traditional food and drink.
Day 5 – Pony Trek (Four to Five days): Extend your stay with a four to five day guided pony trek to iconic tourism destinations in Lesotho. Choose from a Five 5 day Pony Trek to the breathtaking Lethuela Falls (known as Tugela Falls in South Africa) or a Five Day Pony Trek right to the edge of Giants Castle!
