We toured Lesotho and arrived at the Maliba Mountain Lodge. What a beautiful location, the friendliest staff we have experienced, excellent food and amazing good value. What a change to be offered salmon, smoked tout, french onion soup, duck, ostrich, belly pork instead of the usual boring fillet steak. Everything was perfectly cooked with delicious sauces and on hot plates. We could not find fault with the place. This is the first time that I have ever written a review but felt that I really must say something. We stayed in the River Lodge houses which are situated down the hill from the main lodge. The location was great with fantastic views. We had a four bedroom house for the two of us, such a luxury to have space, a lounge to sit in, kitchen to make drinks, fireplace if you want to cook ( don't get your meals included, they were so good! you are on holiday) and underfloor heating if it is cold. There are several hikes to do to numerous waterfalls and pools, all signposted and maps are given for free.
