After a hearty breakfast, we get ready for an exciting journey high over the summit of the Thaba Putswa Range via Makheka’s Pass and across the basalt moorland of Southern Africa to Semonkong, the Place of Smoke. View stop at 2.260m before we reach the summit of the Makheka’s Pass with 2.860m. Panoramic views of the valley with farmlands.

The grassland around is dotted with the yellow flowers of Euryops, the white Arum Lilies, the bright red and yellow colors of the Red-Hot Pokers, and plenty of other wildflowers. Packed lunch on route. The road pass becomes very rugged before and after the summit.

In the afternoon visit the spectacular Maletsunyane Falls or the following morning! By mountain bike/pony or by hiking-duration=3 hours round trip! The longest single drop waterfall in Southern Africa (204m).

Day 4: All Meals Included!

Depart for Maseru Airport.

Breakfast on the verandah or in the restaurant of the lodge and view the Maletsunyane Falls. Thereafter we travel on the tar road to Roma. We climb steadily to the top of the Nkesi’s Pass (2.010m), from where a superb view of the 3.096m, Thaba Putswa Range can be seen. Just before Roma, the road loses altitude and we drive through spectacular white sandstone rocks and valleys. Nearby is the Thaba Telle mountain (2.530m), which is climbed by mountaineers, and is told it is not an easy one. Lunch on route.

The city of Roma is the principal center of the Roman Catholic Church in Lesotho and since 1964 the site of the National University of Lesotho. Roma was founded in 1862 when King Moshoeshoe granted the site to Bishop Allard and Father Gerard.
