Pony Trekking in Lesotho
Pony trails traverse spectacular mountain passes in this landlocked mountain kingdom. View some of southern Africa’s highest waterfalls, visit ancient Bushman rock-art paintings in caves and experience true Basotho culture. Local guides and a packhorse carrying your bags accompany you on your journey. All treks are flexible and tailor-made to suit your requirements. Malealea Lodge is situated in a remote corner of western Lesotho. It’s a breathtakingly beautiful spot surrounded by soaring peaks and offers a chance to experience traditional Basotho life. Malealea’s pony trekking options range from 1 hour to 6 days or even longer, if you so desire.
No riding experience is necessary. All the huts and horses are hired from the Basotho people in Lesotho’s remote areas. Each day’s trek lasts about 7 hours. The huts are rustic and very basic, but you’ll experience ‘the real Africa’: unplugged, raw and enchanting.Lesotho is a land without fences, so your roaming is unchecked and untamed. Every day provides jaw-droppingscenery and precious interactions with the locals. Various Basotho children’s choirs as well as bands that make use of local, home-madeinstruments, entertain guests in the evenings around a campfire. Comeand join us for this unique ‘alpine African’ experience.
