Formerly known as Motebong Village, Motebong Lodge is now a family business operated by a family that enjoys the serenity and beauty of the Lesotho highlands and we are proud to make it possible for our guests to enjoy the Katse dam area.
Located on the up-stream end of Katse Dam, Motebong Lodge is ideally located for a day trip to the Katse dam wall and Botanical gardens at Bokong as day excursions, while giving access to a number of fishing, boating, horse riding and hiking spots around the lodge.
Motebong lodge is also a destination well suited for high altitude training, company breakaways, film shoots and for the bird watchers on the look-out for the rare and at times extinction threatened mountain species such as the bearded vulture – the lammergeyer.
While offering self-catering units, with our bar and restaurant offering delicious meals and a good range of drinks including our famous fish dish and the Motebong bomb cocktail, we are also an ideal destination for bikers who do not carry supplies.
The Motebong lodge photographer has been a guide to many on the best landscape photography sites in the area – a pleasure for photographers. He has also successfully assisted Giant films as location scout on a film shoot for their February 2016 Rand Merchant Bank (RMB) advert shoot around Katse Dam.
We are also proud hosts of many company break-away and team building sessions.
One of the key values of Motebong lodge owners is developing local skills and creation of employment in the Malibamatso Valley that forms Katse Dam. Motebong is thus committed to recruiting and training staff from Ha Lejone and surrounding villages. To this end, we also endeavor to create a warm working environment which we hope our guests also experience the warmth through the treatment they receive from our staff.

Accommodation at the mountain lodge is made up of fully-furnished and fully-equipped self catering cottages of varying sizes and accommodating a varying number of people. These cottages are heated with coal or electric and gas stoves, which is critical during the winter months. They are cleaned daily by our housekeeping staff with the exception of a couple of days when the staff is also given time off
The Lesotho Highlands and Motebong mountain lodge offer a host of activities both within the camp and in the surrounding highlands. Although a place for rest and relaxation, those looking for some excitement, fun and games have also come to the right place. Notwithstanding this, one gets tempted to sit back, relax and do absolutely nothing
Motebong has committed itself to recruiting from Ha Lejone and will continue to do so where the skills and experience is there. With the exception of the Chef, all our staff are from Ha Lejone and surrounds, and have been given the necessary training for the roles they occupy at Motebong. This is a practice that Motebong will continue to pursue for as long as is possible into the future.
Over and above its products and services for its visitors, Motebong Tourism believes in Responsible Tourism. To this end it has undertaken various initiatives in and around Ha Lejone where it is based, and from where it sources its staff. All of this mentoring and efforts to support the community enterprises and individual business initiatives are done entirely at motebong lodge’s costs
