Horse Riding

Reach New Heights On Horseback In The Mountain Kingdom.

The horse is a source of pride in Lesotho, and the Basotho are renowned as a nation of horsemen. 

Pony trekking on the hardy Basotho ponies is immensely popular and a fantastic way of exploring Lesotho’s beautiful rugged terrain as the bridle paths that crisscross Lesotho are barely wide enough for vehicles but the ponies effortlessly dodge obstacles and loose rocks. Basotho Horse Rides are fun for everyone young and old. Go on a guided trek on the back of a traditional Basotho horse by yourself or in a group.

Community Visits

Experience a beautiful & unique culture of Lesotho.

The best way to experience the Basotho culture is to visit one of the local villages or schools and see the simple everyday life and culture of the Basotho people first hand. The villages and their round thatched and stone rondavels make fantastic photo opportunities, but the real highlight of the visit is the warm and friendly people you will meet, often dressed in traditional Basotho Blankets. This is real life, and not a staged cultural village. Maliba Lodge offers guided community tours that offer a meaningful exchange, fostering a deeper understanding of Lesotho’s rich heritage and creating lasting connections between visitors and the resilient spirit of the Basotho people.
