What to do in Lesotho

Horse riding & Pony trekking

Go for one hour to six nights, seven days pony trek across, the mountain escarpments, staying in the high altitude Basotho villages.

The hardly sure-footed Basotho ponies provide the best way to see the rugged domain. Longer or shorter treks can be arranged to suit your schedule and posterior. Pony trekking, which is the second most-used mode of transport in Lesotho, has become one of the most popular tourist activities and is one of the finest ways to experience the Lesotho highlands. The ponies are typically robust and sure-footed and treks explore the spectacular mountain scenery as well as give visitors the opportunity to see and experience the traditional lifestyle of the Basotho people. The main pony trekking centers are the Basotho Trekking Center on God Help Me Pass, and the Malealea Lodge near the Gates of Paradise, where treks lasting from one hour to six days can be arranged. Further afield in the Tsehlanyane National Park there is the newly built luxury Maliba Lodge which offers pony trekking for guests.
