Accommodation in Lesotho

Semonkong Lodge

The mighty Maletsunyane Falls is one of the highest single dropping Falls in Africa, creating a haze of smoke as the water plummets with savage splendour 186m down into a spectacular gorge. This is how Semonkong, The Place of Smoke, got its name.

Landlocked by South Africa lies a country with the highest lowest point in the world & hiding away in the magnificent Maluti Mountains, you will discover the gem that is Semonkong Lodge, built on the banks of the Maletsunyane River using only local stone & thatch, that offers just the right balance between civilisation and rustic elegance; electricity, hot showers, roaring fireplaces, and not a telephone in sight.

A perfect base to explore the wild of Lesotho, Semonkong offers a range of adventure activities including the worlds longest commercial abseil, as stated by the Guinness Book of Records. Overnight Basotho pony trails, mountain biking, fly fishing and donkey pub crawling are also great ways to explore the magnificent country side with Semonkong.  

The fully licensed Duck and Donkey Tavern and Restaurant, provide a popular meeting place for both locals and guests. The restaurant serves world renowned, affordable scrumptious meals and also caters for vegetarians.
