When this message came from the Rio Olympics 2016 newsletter – “Rio2016 – Official mobile app will be offline from Oct 14”, this was confirmation that the sports spectacle of 2016 has been and gone – thanks to the friendly city of Rio for hosting a successful event! It was also a reminder that this is an event to be recorded.
In this edition of Motebong news we share our Rio experience. We should confess to our bias up-front, we hosted the SA rowing team high altitude training since 2013 and that we host and sponsor the high altitude preparation of the Lesotho distance running team.
We share the Rio experience in pictures:

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
