No visit to Lesotho would be incomplete without a pony trek. It is the transport of choice for most Basotho as the sturdy ponies handle the narrow trails better than any 4X4 can.
Many of the ponies used are owned by Basotho's. There are many day outings that are around 3 to 4 hours long. If you want to experience a bit of Basotho culture as well the ideal opportunity you need to take advantage of is the overnight pony treks.
Overnight treks can be tailor-made to your requirements. They can last from one day to six days and even longer. On these treks you will experience “THE REAL AFRICA”. Trails traverse spectacular mountain passes and some of Lesotho’s highest waterfalls. You can explore Bushman paintings and experiencing Basotho culture.
Accommodation on treks is provided in huts hired from the Basotho people in remote areas. The huts are very basic and are equipped with a gas cooker, cooking and eating utensils and mattresses on the floor.
No riding experience is necessary for an overnight trek. Basotho Guides and a packhorse accompany the treks.
