Package Itinerary

Major Bells Tower in Leribe, the fortifications that were built by the British at the end of the 1870s and were besieged but not captured during the Gun War of 1880. The Tower is still largely intact. Visitors can see an interesting primitive statue of a European in front of a nearby local administration office. We can make a stop over at the art craft center in Leribe for those who want to shop for local Souvenirs. The tour continues to the heritage site to see the Dinosaur Footprints and explore the village life interacting and learning about the real Basotho culture and their everyday life activities.

The dinosaur footprints at Subeng are embedded in a sandstone slab in a small stream and rank among the most important sites of its type in the country. Discovered in 1955, Subeng incorporates the footprints of at least three and possibly as many as six different species of dinosaur, some with five toes on their feet, and others with three. Look carefully and you will also see fossilized worm trails and mud cracks on other slabs in the riverbed.
