This place is definitely worth a two hours visit. Try to get the dedicated and friendly guide, Pusetso, or one of her colleagues, to join you and explain the history behind the formation of Leshoto 170 years ago. Great views from the top will reward...More

A real treat and worth a visit. A plateau which signifies the spot where Moshoeshoe was able to defend against the continued attack’s from the Zulu tribes and the afrikaners. A very reflective place steeped in proud history. Some good photos can be taken here

A large site where probably a lot of money has been spent. A large car park, several big buildings housing the reception, conference centre, restaurant and museum. Further on are accommodation units. And tucked behind them is one of the things you have come to...More
