Getting There & Away

Mokhotlong's shared-taxi rank is above the main road near the Shoprite grocery store. There are a few shared taxis daily to/from Butha-Buthe (M110, three hours), with occasional direct services to Maseru (M140, six hours). A bus runs Monday to Saturday to/from Maseru (M130), departing from Mokhotlong by about 8am (and from Maseru at around 6am).

Shared taxis to Linakaneng (M40) will drop you by St James Lodge or Molumong Lodge & Pony Trekking Centre; change in Linakaneng for Thaba-Tseka, although there are infrequent services on this rough and little-travelled route. There is a daily shared taxi to Sani Top (M100, one hour), departing Mokhotlong around 7am.

Petrol and diesel are normally available in Mokhotlong. You need a 4WD vehicle to tackle the road to Thaba-Tseka but you can travel on to Sani Top in a regular car.
