Lesotho
Introduction
We'll explore Lesotho's impressive engineering and natural wonders:
● Oxbow formations, where rivers bend dramatically.
● Then, we'll visit Letseng la Letsie, a mysterious place.
● We'll admire the Seaka Bridge, a remarkable piece of architecture.
● Maliba Lodge
● Afriski mountain resort
● Kome Caves
● Katse Dam
This journey will deepen our appreciation for Lesotho's ingenuity and beautiful scenery.
Oxbow formations
The Lodge is reached via the glorious ‘Moteng Pass which tops out at 2800 meters
and then descends to the Lodge in a valley 8km from the summit, on the banks of
the Mailbamats’oe River.
SomeActivities carriedoutinOxbow
An energetic
walk to the top of
the mountain will
give you views
that you can only
dream of and if its
warm enough
take a dip in the
pure rock pools.
Catch one of the beautiful rainbow trout or catch a glimpse of the
Bearded Vulture.
Why don’t you try your hand at hiking,
ice climbing, skiing, or come to Oxbow
with your motorbikes and a group of
mates.
Lets’englaLetsie
a reservoir in Lesotho's Quthing District, among the Drakensberg highlands. When the Mohlakeng River's source was dammed in
1968, a smaller, naturally occurring lake was expanded, creating the reservoir. Since 2001, the lake and the marshes that encircle
the shore have been recognised as national protected areas, and since 2004, they have been recognised as Ramsar sites.
Locationof Lets’eng laLetsie
Lets’eng-la-Letsie is Lesotho’s
only Ramsar wetland, located in
the south-eastern part of the
mountain kingdom. It is not easy
to reach this piece of paradise
high-up in the mountains, as the
only two ‘roads’ leading there are
rough, tough, adventurous 4x4,
and not for the faint hearted.
SeakaBridge
AboutSeakaBridge
• Seaka Bridge is one of the iconic places in Lesotho. The bridge is
a colonial legacy.
• It was manufactured in Worcester, England and erected at
Commissioner drift, over Mohokare River in 1882, having been
brought up from the coast on ox wagon and re-erected at Seaka
with the help of a grant from the United Kingdom Colonial
Development and Welfare Fund.
• It was officiated and opened on the 12th December 1959.
Trek Through the Magnificent Mountain Kingdom
Feeling uneasy about
trekking the trails by
yourself? Our
knowledgeable
guides will assist you
in seeing the
breathtaking scenery
of the Maloti Mountain
range. Prepare to be
astounded by some
truly breathtaking
sights.
To New Heights In The Mountain Kingdom While Riding A Horse
DinosaurFootprintTour
You visit the Tsikoane Cave footprint location as
part of the tour. The Tsikoane footprints, which
are set into the overhanging rock roof, are
accessible via a 2-kilometer walk. Owing to their
unique construction, the prints have remained
remarkably intact and present an astonishing sight.
MAYBEYOUNEEDTWOCOLUMNS
TODECIDE
Take your friends and family to the most distinctive ski resort in Africa to experience
snowfall. The slopes are ready for you and your loved ones to go skiing and have an
unforgettable time.
Established in 2000, Afriski
initially focused on developing a
snow destination in Southern
Africa, deep in the remote areas
of the country. A perfect location
in the Maluti Mountains which
formed the right shaped ‘bowl’
for the perfect slope situated at
3222 metres above sea level.
This did not come without its
challenges. We had a
temperamental lift system, no
electricity, limited lances to
make snow that relied on
generators and if one needed
cell signal your best bet was to
venture to the top of Mahlasela
Pass.
AboutAfriski

KomeCaves
The Kome Caves are a group of cave dwellings made out of mud in
the district of Berea, Lesotho 25 km east of Teyateyaneng. The
caves are still inhabited by the descendants of the original
people who built the caves. The site has been classified as a
National Heritage Site.
The Kome Cave Dwellings were built and protected by Chief
Teleka of The Basia(cat) Clan in the early 19th century. The
main purpose for the cave dwellings was to serve as a hideout
from adversaries during the drought in the late 18th
century. The name of Ha Kome comes from the Kome family in
the Basia tribe, the first inhabitants of the cave.
AboutKomeCaves
KatseDam
Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun
and the smallest one in the Solar System—
it’s only a bit larger than the Moon
KatseDamE
The Katse Dam and Transfer Tunnel are part of the Lesotho Highlands Water Project and are constructed
in the basalts of the Drakensberg Formation. The project will supply water to the main industrial area of
South Africa around Pretoria, Johannesburg and Vereeniging. The project commenced in 1987. Many of
these basalts have been subjected to deuteric alteration and consequently contain expansive clay
minerals. The presence of expansive minerals can mean that the basalts disintegrate rapidly on exposure.
A series of tests were carried out to assess the durability of these basalts. The olivine basalts and those
types which contained disseminated clay spots were the least durable. They were unsuitable for use as
concrete aggregate. The texture of the basalt, however, can restrict access of water to swelling minerals
and therefore affect breakdown and durability. Breakdown of basalt led to slabbing and spalling from the
perimeter of the tunnel, and the complexity of weathering and jointing in the basalt meant that the
foundation depth was increased at the dam site. It also has led to a delay in the completion of the Transfer
Tunnel as it now has to be lined completely instead of partially.
