Package Itinerary

This is the oldest nature reserve in Lesotho, remote and rugged but predictably peaceful and stunningly beautiful... Set on the border with South Africa in the southern reaches of the Drakensberg at an average altitude of 2400m, the park is best known for its prolific birdlife, including the rare bearded vulture (or lammergeier), excellent trout fishing on the Tsoelikana River, waterfalls, rock paintings and ancient Basotho stone dwellings, and seemingly endless open spaces just perfect for hiking.

Sehlabathebe is also characterized by impressive sandstone rock formations that project from the grasslands and the mountains. The Orange River, whose source can be found in the highlands of Lesotho, flows through the park on its long journey west to the sea.

The tranquil beauty of this isolated reserve harbors bucks and rare birds. There are also a few game animals: baboons, rhebuck, eland and the secretive oribi antelope, mongoose, otters, wild cats, and jackals. In good weather, you probably won't be in any hurry to leave, but at any time of year mists and rain can emerge out of nowhere, even on the finest of days, so come prepared.
