Overland 4x4 tour of Lesotho

Sani Pass into Lesotho.

Tour of Lesotho
We love to visit the highest pub in Africa on an overland tour of Lesotho.

4 Day Overland Tour of Lesotho & Golden Gate.

A tour of Lesotho should be on everyone’s list. The mountain kingdom of Lesotho is wild and remote and guaranteed to recharge your soul. Our 4 day tours of Lesotho are done in summer and winter. These trips are quite different from each other due to snow and ice in winter and green fields in the summer. Check here to see when we are going to Lesotho again.

Summer is spent enjoying simple mountain lodges.

Warm cozy beds are part of the experience which comes in handy even in summer. You never know what the weather will do high up in the mountains. Day 1 is a drive up the famous Sani pass into Lesotho. We do go through a border so don’t forget your passport. There is either a self drive option or you can join me in one of my vehicles.

After a visit to the highest pub in Africa we carry on into the mountain kingdom. Depending on the weather I like to enjoy lunch with a view on top of Black mountain. It is the highest we get to on this trip at 3250m ab

ove sea level. Imagine the views.

Travel to Mokhotlong is on a tar road.

We pass through the town of Mokhotlong on our way to our first overnight stop. Tonight we stay at Highlands lodge. After some simple luxury we soon turn off the main road for some 4×4 fun. The Kao mine road is rough but unbelievably beautiful. Lunch is a picnic on the side of the road and then some more stunning mountain scenery before we arrive at Motebong lodge on the banks of Katse dam.  

Day 3 is a relaxing drive to Clarence.

Today is all tar road as we drive along some twisting and turning and ups and downs to exit Lesotho. This route would be spectacular on a motor bike. On the way we summit Mafika Lislu pass with views over the low lands of Lesotho. After exciting Lesotho at Caledonspoort border we arrive at the tourist town of Clarence. There are a lot of options for a delicious lunch here.

A short drive later and we arrive at Golden Gate.

This is a great camp site with amazing walks around the huge sand stone cliffs.

With the morning sun shining on them you will see why this place is called Golden Gate. After a saunter we have a big breakfast and then it is a 4 hr drive back to Pietermaritzburg or to Johannesburg if you drove your own 4×4 vehicle.

And that folks is my 4 day overland tour of Lesotho and Golden Gate!
