From the start to end of the tour it was an authentically Basotho experience! The traditional healer is well worth a visit ;) too. Our tour guide was fabulous and all your senses gets incorporated into the experience ;)

Easily reached, you are introduced to the changes in the Basotho people over the past 500 years. Very informative.

The Sangoma readings, the friendly chief who offered us home made beer and the interesting history about the Lesotho Culture. We had a great guide. All in all a great visit-returned twice with friends visiting this country.

I've visited the village a couple of times, every time hoping that it would be better than the previous visit and every time wishing that the right management could be appointed. With so much potential and in such a beautiful location, this could be a serious attraction for local and international tourists. Still nice to show and see, but it... More

Some concrete huts, lavatories that don't work, a small shop and nothing else meant this was not a great experience. This is the second time we've visited in four years and will be the last. A real shame as it should be very good.

We were sent up and down numerous times looking for the "bar" and eventually after the 3 try the lady running the bar was sitting in a little tuck shop where we could see the cold drinks, so I asked if we...
