Lesotho pony trek - Acacia overland safaris

Lesotho pony trek

Reach for the sky on our latest overland tours as we are about to venture into little known Lesotho. This September you could be following in the ‘hoof-steps’ of the famous Basotho herdsmen and trekking across the landlocked kingdom by pony. The only way to travel, these small sturdy horses handle the narrow and sometimes hair-raising trails better than any 4X4, and the mountain scenery is nothing short of spectacular.

From late September to early January, you might be able to watch, and even have a go at sheep shearing (one of Southern Africa’s extreme sports) enroute, the adventure including a village visit and a chance to meet with local herdsmen. Instagram overload, we have also packed in a picnic at 3,240 metres above sea level and a short hike to view Thabana Ntlenyana, the highest point in Southern Africa. Top it all off with a cold one on the South Africa/Lesotho border and admire the majestic mountain panoramas at the highest public bar in Africa!

Mountain biking, abseiling, homestays and hiking to view ancient bushman paintings are on the list of optional pursuits in Lesotho, so ask our team about the new 19 day Kruger To Cape Town and find the adventurer in you…
