Just spent another four magical days at Moolmanshoek. Have been spending breaks there for over a decade now and the Nel family never fail to deliver a world class hospitality experience. They deliver an unbeatable combination of breathtaking scenery, game viewing, mountain biking, 4 x 4 trails, horse riding and hiking. The breakfasts served on the stoep in good weather... More

Our first stay here after our skiing and overland trek through Lesotho. In the words of my son - we must come back. The owners have really put a lot of effort into the rooms, activities and food. The only downside is that the twinrooms are a bit cramped - especially if you have a suitcase or two. But in... More

We lived in Lesotho and went to Moolmanshoek 5 or 6 times. This place has all one can ask. Incredible views, the best horses in SA, amazing hiking, very good food, and wonderful management and staff. Mafie and Wiesmann are always so nice and welcoming. Moolmanshoek is simply the thing we'll miss the most about Lesotho :)

What a surprise - gem of a place. It offers a great deal: game viewing, walking, hiking, riding, chilling....the list is endless. The rooms are good and the food excellent. Met some lovely people too! I would certainly go back.

Stayed here for a business conference. The lodge is located deep in the valley approx 2km down a dirt track off the main road. The reception building & restaurant is separated away from the lodge bedrooms providing a more secluded & quiet surroundings for the rooms. I was given room 15 which is a family room with a private terrace... More

Moolmanshoek has been on our bucket list for years but we have only just managed to tick it off our list. It more than lived up to our expectations and we left very glad that we had finally been there. After a very warm welcome we were taken to our room ( in a lodge separate from the main building)...

I stayed for a weeks riding with a friend, booked through 'In The Saddle'. This is a fabulous place; the lodge, the rooms, the food, the service are all fabulous. The horses are amazing, you will not be disappointed. Whatever your riding ability, they have a horse that you will feel totally confident and happy on. And the riding territory... More

I really don't have a bad word to say about this place. I went with a group of people as part of a fundraising challenge. We could not have had a better time- everything was stunning from the setting, the rooms, the hospitality, the food, the friendliness, the horses, the challenging riding, the scenery.... I just loved this place and... More

I travelled with a group organised by World Horse Welfare as a charity fund raising challenge. The riding was fabulous on wonderful, wonderful horse. The service and care that was lavished on us excellent and the accommodation clean and comfy and spot on. The views of mountains were spectacular and its also a runner's paradise with everything from short trails... More
