Lesotho is a world without fences. Breathtaking scenery abounds and every season has unique attractions. Malealea Lodge is run by the owners, Mick & Di Jones, both born in Lesotho and credited with more local knowledge than anyone. Various Basotho Children's choirs and a Local Basotho Band, using their local home-made instruments, entertain the guests in the evenings around a campfire.

Malealea is situated in a remote part of Western Lesotho, breathtaking in its beauty and a chance to experience traditional Basotho life. Inscription in the rock by Mervyn Bosworth-Smith, founder of Malealea, Trading Station in the early 1900's - now Malealea Lodge.

Malealea has a wide variety of accommodation catering for various needs and various budgets. Basotho Rondavels en-suite, Farmhouse Buildings en-suite, Basotho Huts, Forest Huts and camping, at highly competitive rates available.

Malealea outings range from 1 hour to 6 days or longer...tailor-made to your requirements. Our treks are usually about 7 hours each day, no riding experience is necessary. All the huts and horses are hired from the Basotho people in Lesothos's remote areas. The huts are very basic and are equipped with a gas cooker, cooking & eating utensils and mattresses on the floor. On trek you experience "THE REAL AFRICA"; the trails traverse spectacular mountain passes and some of Lesotho's highest waterfalls exploring Bushman paintings and experiencing "Basotho culture". Basotho Guides and a packhorse accompany the treks. All treks & trails are tailor made to suit your requirements - flexibility and your needs are paramount at Malealea.

Guest Comments

Malealea Lodge was beautiful. My friends and I only stayed a night but wished we could have stayed longer. The rooms were very nice, the food was delicious and the pony ride was amazing! I highly recommend staying here.
- Natalie Martin

I could rate the Lodge above 10 in some aspects if it was possible. Got red carpet treatment. I had fun despite my hectic schedule and my Directors were happy, except for limited number of double beds.
- Mapule Mokoena

Great weekend get-away! Food was good value for money and the pony trek spactacular. Will definitely recommend the place!
- Riaan Steenkamp

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Will definitely return.
