Tour description

We explore the Lesotho highlands, pony trekking, hiking, cross six 3000m+ spectacular road passes, see Bushman Rock Art, wonder through an indigenous forest, enjoy Lesotho's only botanical garden, swim in crystal clear mountain pools (in summer only), explore the three nature and cultural reserves in the north of Lesotho, and return via the route known as "The Roof of Africa" after the famous motor rally which used to take place there. You will spend time with a Basotho family, getting to know the culture of this tough but hospitable mountain people. We pay a visit to Katse Dam, centre piece of the Lesotho Highlands Water Project which takes the water of the Lesotho Highlands via an incredible series of dams and tunnels through the mountains eventually coming out on the plains of South Africa's Free State province,  supplying Johannesburg and Pretoria with water.. The massive dam wall and the deep still lake it has created in the mountains is well worth beholding!
