From the fantastic setting, to the friendly service, rooms and food, this is a 5 star experience.. The various activities set in the beautiful mountain range ate superb. From 4x4 trails to horse riding and walks, it's all too good to believe.

Wow its is stunning there, beautiful scenery and beautiful place. Breakfast is served on a veranda with a stunning view of the mountains, dinner was superb. Walk around the farm and see... More

My husband and I spend New Year's Eve at Moolmanshoek; it was our first night stop on our way back to Cape Town. The setting for the lodge is simply beautiful, it sort of takes your breath away! The room was clean and comfortable, my only recommendation would be to include a bar fridge; I found it a bit strange... More

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
