This chalet is nicely located on a river, in the middle of scenic Leotho Mountains. The chalets have 4 bed rooms with 2 beds each, so it pays-off to come in a group of 6-8 people. 100% self-catering in a clean kitchen with all dishes being provided (watch the meat on the border, veterinerian inspecitions). Hiking to Black pools or... More

The reception when we arrived was superb. We were welcomed with handshakes and cool towels by friendly staff. The 4-bedroom chalet was comfortable and spotless with good linen and towels. The kitchen is well equipped with oven and big fridge. The setting of these luxury chalets is memorable with views of the mountains rising across the river.

The river chalets are self-catering, 4 bedroom units. It is more than sufficient for your purposes with under-floor heating, electric blankets,e tc. It can however do with a fireplace and we had trouble with a lack of enough hot water. Otherwise there is a Weber braai and the kitchen has all the basics. We had nice hikes on the routes... More

My wife and I stayed - together with my son and daughter-in-law and another couple of friends for 4 nights in one of the riverside houses. Nearly everything about the house and it's servicing was excellent. We have no hesitation in recommending this for a high quality self catering location in beautiful surroundings. Our slight niggles were with small things... More

We had a fantastic time at Maliba River lodge. So tranquil, peaceful and beautiful. We couldn't believe that these chalets were only rated 3 stars! It definitely deserves 5 stars! The staff at Maliba were also great and the food at the lodge outstanding. We would certainly return and strongly recommend Maliba as the ideal breakaway.

We've spent 3 nights @ Maliba River Lodge and had a good laugh overthere with the Maliba's Lodge team. We had experienced swiming into the rock pool & had a horse riding with the very kind & nice Paul, but most of all we'd learned how to dance the Lesotho traditional with the laughing girls ! we had such a...

Spectacular Location, Great Service & Excellent Food - there are several types of accommodation so be sure you know where you are booking. We found management flexible and accommodating - ask for mid-week specials or deals if staying out of season. The Mountain Lodge & Chalets is the original property (there is 5 or 6 chalets located at lodge rated... More

The river chalets are approx. 2km from the main building, nicely located at the river. Dinner at the mountain Lodge was pricey but very good. Service outstandingly friendly, especially the manager.. All in all a great experience and highly recommended.

We toured Lesotho and arrived at the Maliba Mountain Lodge. What a beautiful location, the friendliest staff we have experienced, excellent food and amazing good value. What a change to be offered salmon, smoked tout, french onion soup, duck, ostrich, belly pork instead of the usual boring fillet steak. Everything was perfectly cooked with delicious sauces and on hot plates.... More
