Malealea Lodge is everything one could wish for in a place to stay. The setting is incredibly beautiful, the accommodation comfortable and clean, the staff friendly and accommodating, the food delicious and the variety of activities on offer extensive. This was my fourth visit to the lodge - my third with a school group from the UK. Each time, we... More

It takes some effort to get there (and even more to get away), especially in a saloon car, but it is worth it. The whole set-up is excellent - relaxed but efficient, friendly and helpful from arrival to departure, a beautiful place in which to relax and lively in the evenings. The food was great and there is plenty to... More

We stayed at the lodge while working with the Malealea Development Trust on a mission trip. While the road trek to get there was a little rough, coming over the mountains and entering paradise was breath taking. The Lodge was super cool, situated in the mountains with beautiful view all day and night. The stars at night were amazing. Huts... More

What a special place, it is actually very difficult to describe, you actually need to go there and experience it as it is like nothing you could have tried. It is always a mix of interesting people from around the world, who would think you could go to a small land locked country and experience such a vast cultural variety,... More

Malealea is a lovely lodge in the heart of Leshoto, not to far away from the South African border. It's situated in a valley next to a small community who seem to be very involved with the lodge. The chalets are typical Southern African standard and have what is necessary for a few days stay. The lodge is like a... More

What an amazing place. Cute lodges, great food, beautiful pony trek, local music. Everything is very easy to arrange on site, and the views are gorgeous. All around great. Just dress warm and bring a 4x4 for the drive in.

Great location nestled in a valley and surrounded by rugged and snow capped mountains. Hiking and pony outdoor activities combine with an excellent location. Enjoyed the hikes conducted by the local villagers down the valleys and the gorges . Highlights were the rockpools and san paintings. Good wholeslome meals at the lodge as well

We had a very good time at Malealea Lodge as part of a tour group passing through. We stayed two nights and everyone that works at the lodge is very friendly and accommodating. Our daughter had a slight accident on a horse tour there and the owners and staff went out of their way to help make sure she had... More

Excellent lodge in a stunning location. Beautiful place worth a long minibus journey. Lodge itself is a great place to meet other travelers and choose from a variety of activities. Everyone hangs out in the bar waiting for dinner which is served at the same time for all adding to a homely atmosphere, And of course you will be back... More
