Subeng Dinosaur Footprints
Lesotho is rich in relics of its prehistoric past, especially of early dinosaurs and of the first primitive mammals to walk the earth. Fascinating for the non-specialist visitor are the dinosaur footprints preserved in sandstone.
One of our best examples is at Subeng Stream. The Subeng Stream is about 5 miles north of Hlotse, and within easy walking distance from the main Hlotse-Butha-Buthe road. The track way features the footprints of several different dinosaurs that existed from the period at the end of the Triassic era, some 180-200 million years ago. These were early ancestors of the creatures that feature in the film Jurassic Park.
