Ray, the owner of Thaba Tours guided us from Katse Dam to Semonkong Lodge to Malealea Lodge over three days and three nights. He was immensely helpful and essential to our trip. He knew a great local spot to stop for food when we passed through a town at lunchtime one day, and was a phenomenal driver on roads I wouldn't dare take on myself. He clearly has nurtured relationships with lodge owners and their respect and care for Ray and his clients is evident. At first I thought I was spending too much money to go with Ray, but within a few hours knew I had made the right decision. Lesotho is not the easiest place to travel, and Ray took all of the difficulties on and made them non existent for us. He's been working in the area for over 15 years, and it shows.

We booked a 4 day/3 night tour with Thaba tours to Lesotho. The operator organised transfers for us from Durban to Underberg, before we started our journey into Lesotho.
The owner was very friendly and professional,and always available to answer any email queries before the start of the tour. The tour guide was great, he had lots of little stories and anecdotes to keep us informed along the route, and we had numerous photo stops at beautiful view-points along the routes. He knew all the best places to stop and take pics :)
The hotels and bnb's organised during our visit, were always clean and provided decent dinner and breakfast, which made our stay pleasant as we were in a rural setting. We were well taken care of, and had nothing to worry about once our booking was made, as everything was organised and catered for.
This was a great experience, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone travelling to Lesotho :)

We organized a day-trip up Sani Pass with Thaba Tours and couldn't be more satisfied with the quality of their services. We were picked up promptly from Underberg and driven up the pass in a very good car by a kind and knowledgeable driver who stopped frequently to allow us to take photos. At the top, we had loads of time to check out the scenery, do a few short walks, and have lunch at the Sani Top Lodge.

The owner, Ray Watt, goes out of his way to make you comfortable. He was incredibly prompt in responding to emails prior to our trip and followed up with us to make sure that all went well. Then, he was of incredible assistance in getting a wire transfer reversed to me, after I had sent the advance for the trip to the incorrect bank account. Without his intervention, I am sure I would have lost a solid chunk of change!

Thank you Thaba Tours for a wonderful time in Sani--definitely, one of the highlights of our southern Africa trip!

Loved our experience!
