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

I cannot recommend this place enough! Malealea Lodge is set in a beautiful location with a view of the surrounding mountains. We stayed in one of the rondavels which was very nice and new. It even had a mini self-catering area (with a stove and some basic supplies like a couple pots, plates, etc), which we weren't expecting (I read... More

When we arrived late at Malea-Lea, the sun was already setting, coloring everything in a fierce red light and that was when I knew that our stay here in Lesotho would be a very special one. Malea-Lea Lodge consists of different type of huts, cottages and rooms, as well as a camp site. Our group stayed mainly at the little... More

As a tour operator I can confidently include Malealea Lodge into my Lesotho tours as they really are "Lesotho in... More
