We offer cruises and water picnics on the 'Letata la Motebong', a Sensation Monterey speed boat with a music system to die for, lounge style seats, a cocktail table and all the bells and whistles, an accelerating way to experience Katse dam!
Private boat launch for our guests.
The two-hour cruise on Letata la Motebong, an 8-seater boat in Katse dam with scenic views of the surrounding majestic Lesotho Highlands mountains and numerous bird sightings on the dam and edges along the way. The cruise includes a by-pass of the Katse fish farm, the intake tower for the water transfer tunnel to South Africa, cruising below the iconic 700m long Mphorosane bridge over the Katse dam before reaching bird island. At bird island there is time to admire the setting of the birds including an outstanding colony of white-breasted Cormorant (Seinoli) nests in their natural habitat and an opportinuty to take some amazing pictures as the boat circles the island – a trip you won’t forget!!

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
