Property Description

Khotso Lodge & Horse Trails and Accommodation, deep in the Southern Drakensberg, is the perfect base to explore, adventure or relax. It's famous for its spectacular horse trails and multi-day, cross-border horseback Lesotho expedition. With 1300 hectares at your disposal, ride over the ridge-tops on horseback, hike to one of the mineral water pools, swim or fish the Umzimkulu river, mountain bike, or just take time out from your hectic day-to-day routine and unwind by a fire under the stars in the breathtaking scenery of the Southern Drakensberg. Whether you choose our rustic Backpackers Lodge, iconic self-catering Rondawels, pristine campsite or magnificent hand-built log cabin, we’ll have something ideal for your solo trip, your romantic getaway or your group of friends.

Our accommodation is reflected in our setting, and we provide rustic, lively, comfortable, clean, affordable lodging to suit all and any who are looking to get the most out of the great outdoors and this magnificent place we’re lucky enough to call home.
There's the rustic and lively Backpackers Lodge, campsite with kitchen and ablutions in the orchard next to the mountain stream, and 3 magnificent self-catering rondawels overlooking a secluded gorge. Escape the hustle and bustle of the towns and cities and spend precious time with friends and family in your own rondawel or head to the Lodge for the sociable atmosphere and embrace the wonderful characters that travel here from all over the world.

With the breathtaking jagged skyline of the Southern Drakensberg mountains, and Lesotho sitting on the horizon, Khotso is nestled in the Underberg Valley just up from the majestic Umzimkulu River. Herds of Eland and Blesbok roam freely, fish eagles, crowned cranes and cape vultures soar in the skies around Khotso's very own Eland's Peak, sitting at 1,800m above sea-level. Only a hop (10mins) from Underberg, you can easily stock up with everything you need for the perfect mountain getaway.

Great venue with a great team. There are so many activities in the area. I recommend that you do some research on the activities before you arrive as most of them are in the immediate area but you would need to plan ahead to do as much as possible. The venue has some beers and also prepares meals at a fee which, had I known, would have saved me so much trouble. Over all a great stay with Nathan and his team.

Absolutely stellar experience! Despite the cold of the drakensberg, this spot kept us warm with its lovely staff and surrounding nature. Left a bit of my heart there and will come back for it soon!
