What to See

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.

Ensure your bag/s have the basics and DO NOT forget your MEDICATION.
