Khotso Backpackers is a Hostel deep in the Drakensberg Mountains. Being close to the town of Underberg, the Sani Pass, and the Border of Lesotho, Kingdom of the Sky, makes this backpackers perfect for the budget traveler wanting to take their adventure a step further in South Africa, and visit the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. This mountain Backpackers has a dorm room with bunk beds (linen included, as well as double rooms for those couples who prefer the privacy of their own room. Use of the kitchen is open to those who prefer to self cater, but meals are available from the Backpackers also.
Khotso Backpackers is probably better known for the Horse trails, and the treks done into Lesotho on Horseback. Khotso is after all said and done a working Horse, and sheep farm. This is one of many reasons Khotso Backpackers is such an attractive option for international travelers: Not only get to appreciate the raw, and natural beauty of the Drakensberg Mountains, but also get to experience it on "real" level. The trekking into Lesotho on horseback is definitely an adventure of epic proportions, and should be reason enough to come visit the Beautiful country of South Africa
Other than the BACKPACKERS near the Sani Pass and Underberg, the horsetrails in the Drakensberg mountains, and the trekking tour into Lesotho, Khotso has more to offer: The is a romantic self-catering Lodge, and Rondawels, for the romantic couple. Around the farm there is trout fishing available, the Underberg Cheesery is close-by, and the Sani Pass is a stone's throw away
Having an entire farm at our disposal, camping is certainly an option but generally campers, overlanders and bikers choose to camp on our lawn and make use of all the facilities that's available to the back packers lodge.
The dorm room sleep 8 people in Bunk Beds. Perfect for backpackers, or those who have a tight budget to work on for their travels
