Lesotho Expedition - Lesotho and South Africa

Experience Level

Lesotho Expedition

5 star rating   19 May 2018

My horse was lovely, long paced, very responsive, very comfortable and very sure-footed. Horse maintained condition throughout the 7 days.
Rode in Mcclellan saddles with seat savers so were very comfortable.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Difficult to rate the accommodation because we stayed at 4 lodges and they varied but the itinerary reflected how basic (or not) they would be. I was warm enough in all four places. Khotso and St Bernard's Peak Lodges were luxurious.
The food was wonderful; plentiful, fresh and different each day. Loved the Lesotho bread. Loved how we could make our own sandwiches at lunchtime so sandwiches were not squashed in the saddlebags.

How could we improve the quality of pre-holiday information that we send?

Considering this was an exploratory ride, the information was as up to date as it was possible or known in advance. Communication was excellent.

How could we improve the way we handled your booking and payment?

It was an amazing holiday but the terrain is mountainous, there are long days in (and out) of the saddle and some of the accommodation is basic. The scenery is beautiful. The guide knew his flora and fauna. Each day's ride was different and we experienced so much culture. If you are fit, happy to be without electricity and want an adventure then consider this.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

Not for the fainted hearted.
