Lake Letsie


A little-visited but incredibly picturesque lake that makes for gorgeous day trips from Quthing (a two-hour, bumpy ride each way). Intrepid travellers may even opt to camp here. One guide who can arrange the outings is Mamalephane, who works in conjunction with the Hillsview Guest House.
