Our snow season is normally from June to August. This year we had unusually early snow falls in April and some light snow in June.
Forecasts show some additional light snow falls in the first and last weeks of July and possibly the first week of August. These light snow falls are unlikely to be disruptive to the extent of making travel impossible – provided all-wheel, 4×4 and possibly front-wheel drive vehicles are used.
The light snow will likely be sufficient to allow some snow experience, including the building of snow creatures, ‘friendly’ snow fights and light snowboarding on the slopes (own equipment).
The Afriski resort which is located some 70 Kilometres. from us hosts formal skiing and has instructors as well as rental skiing equipment for those without equipment and accepts day visitors. Motebong Lodge can help with reservations for day visits by our guests where required.

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
