We really enjoyed our stay at Khotso Lodge. Hiking in the 'backyard' is amazing, the atmosphere was great and the food was excellent. Staff was very nice and the place has a cosy atmosphere, dining with fellow travellers in a homey environment.

About
Description
Khotso Horse Trails and Accommodation, deep in the Southern Drakensberg, is both a working horse and sheep farm and a perfect base to either explore, adventure or relax. Khotso is famous in the area for More its spectacular horse trails, which range from 1-hour rides to 3-day cross-border expeditions into Lesotho. There is the rustic and lively Backpackers Lodge, a new campsite with kitchen and ablution block in the orchard next to the mountain stream, as well as 3 newly refurbished self-catering rondawels overlooking a private gorge behind. Enjoy the idyllic life that comes with living in the mountains, far away from the hustle and bustle in the towns and cities. Spend precious time with friends and family in your own rondawel or head to the Lodge for the sociable atmosphere to embrace the wonderful characters that travel here from all over the world. With the full 1 000 hectare farm at your disposal, ride over the ridge tops on horseback, hike to one of the mineral water pools, swim or fish the Umzimkulu river, mountain bike the extensive single track routes, or just take time out from your hectic day-to-day routine to relax and unwind by a fire under the stars in the breathtaking scenery of the Southern Drakensberg.

Hello, we do an overnight trail into Lesotho but not via Sani Pass. We use Bushmansnek border post and ride into Sheslabathebe national park.

Hello, our wifi is not super fast but good for e mails and sending photos. Most of the times you can skype. We also have coffee shops in town (10km) where the internet is better. Kind Regards Lulu
