As spring sets-in, we are treated to a variety of colours and pleasant smells as trees flower. Motebong is particularly proud of its peach trees which are usually the first clear sign that the seasons are changing from winter to spring and then summer. More importantly however, these flowering trees remind of the fruit feast that lies ahead in late January, February and into early March.
The beauty of the flowers also reminds us that the highlands are ready to be explored in various ways, as the weather and temperatures becomes more agreeable for outside activities.
The countryside is also acquiring new colours.
The weather now makes it easier for children to enjoy the jungle-gym and other outdoor activities.
Horse riding remains an exciting experience, especially with the injection of tricks by the Ha Lejone horsemen!
A sumptuous X-Mas lunch is special.
The area offers various hiking route options.
The New Year’s eve fireworks display is one of the highlights of the festive holidays.
The new year’s eve Braai is always special.
Then there is a Katse dam boat ride and bikers taking a welcome break below.
And fishing in the dam and in the streams around Motebong can be rewarding.
Moving fuel, food and luggage!

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
