Extend our popular Lesotho Day Trip and overnight in the “Kingdom in the Sky”, spending the night in rural Lesotho in the outskirts of Mokhotlong
This tour departs from Underberg / Himeville, from where we take you up Sani Pass and further on into a village in the Mountain Kingdom, called Mokhotlong, allowing you to explore more of Lesotho’s Highlands!
After lunch experience true Lesotho way-of-life at an immersive village experience.
In the late afternoon we make into the remote town of Mokhotlong, where we spend the night atop the Roof of Africa.
The next morning you will meet your guide after a hearty breakfast to choose your activity for the morning – hiking or horse riding at the top of the Sani Pass in Lesotho!
Enjoy a hearty lunch at the top in the Highest Pub in Africa before heading back down the pass.
This 2 day and 1 night tour of Lesotho from Underberg is great value for money as it includes all tours and activities as well accommodation and meals. The only thing you have to pay for is your drinks.
Please note that this price is for per person sharing. We have chosen the best accommodation for you at the most affordable rate. Staying in Mokhotlong rather than at the top of Sani Pass allows us to get cheaper accommodation but not compromising on quality.

It’s the perfect mix of nature, culture and history; enjoy Lesotho’s natural flora and fauna, driving past Lesotho’s highest peak, dive into the culture of the Basotho people in this historical trading post and take a peek into history by getting to see the beautiful old buildings that pack lots of history into this small village. Lesotho is the only country in the world that is in its entirety above 1000m in elevation, making this an experience that you cannot enjoy anywhere else in the world!

This village in Lesotho is a picturesque hour and a half drive from the Sani Pass Border Post. Mokhotlong started as a small police outpost in 1905 and over the years it developed into a remote trading hub for the people of the Highlands region. Since Mokhotlong is so remote, it was preserved from the development that other cities in Lesotho underwent. Mokhotlong gives tourists the opportunity to experience a truly traditional village in the ‘Kingdom in the Sky’.
