We had a wonderful time at Malealea Lodge - and for a great price. We stayed three nights and did hiking, biking, and pony trekking excursions for around 800-900 ZAR. The lodge premise is beautiful with nice areas for reading and lounging and the staff is helpful and friendly. Lesotho is a stunning country and the locals are extremely friendly.
