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.

This is a practice that Motebong will continue to pursue for as long as is possible into the future.
