The view is amazing, trails are exiting to hike, and the food is delicious. The power is only on for a couple of hours at night, but if the electric blanket is on then you'll be plenty warm at night by the time the power turns off. There is horseback riding that gives you an amazing tour of the surrounding... More

We went for a long weekend and the aim was to relax and just take a breather from life. This is definitely the place to go to! The views are unbelievable and with a nice fireplace we had hours of fun with board-games. We had a mix of self-catering and full board and both was brilliant. The accommodation was lovely... More

Both Trading Posts are must visit stay at lodges when visiting Lesotho, but if I had to pick the Ramabanta Lodge is my favorite. The lawns are impeccable, the views are breathtaking, the staff is friendly. The rooms are clean and the food is great. There is no WiFi, and power only from 5-10 pm, which I thought I wouldn't...

The Trading Post lodge in Ramabanta is set in the midst of the most beautiful scenery there is. Incredible views, lovely accommodations, great food, and friendly & helpful staff. The lodge is its own oasis with a short walk to the village and has several trails to go hiking. Locals are friendly and the views' beauty cannot be justified with... More

This is the place I'd like to spend every December for the rest of my life. Perhaps the prettiest location in all of southern Africa. Sweeping valley views from beautifully landscaped grounds. The rooms are clean and warm; there is always hot water. Only downside is lights out at 10 so bring flashlights.

Lesotho is very basic, no places to stop along the way to eat or even to find curios. The people are friendly, but in saying that we had food stolen from the back of the vehicle and the traffic officials are as usual on the take. However, we went there for the snow and it was BEAUTIFUL, lots of snow... More
