Khotso Horse Trails and Accommodation, deep in the Southern Drakensberg, is both a working horse and sheep farm and a perfect base to either explore, adventure or relax. Khotso is famous in the area for its spectacular horse trails, which range from 1-hour rides to 3-day cross-border expeditions into Lesotho. There is the very cosy Backpackers Lodge, a new campsite with kitchen and ablution block in the orchard next to the mountain stream, as well as 3 newly refurbished self-catering rondawels overlooking a private gorge behind. Enjoy the idyllic life that comes with living in the mountains, far away from the hustle and bustle in the towns and cities. Spend precious time with friends and family in your own rondawel or head to the Lodge for the sociable atmosphere to embrace the wonderful characters that travel here from all over the world. With the full 1 000 hectare farm at your disposal, ride over the ridge tops on horseback, hike to one of the mineral water pools, swim or fish the Umzimkulu river, mountain bike the extensive single track routes, or just take time out from your hectic day-to-day routine to relax and unwind by a fire under the stars in the breathtaking scenery of the Southern Drakensberg.

The scenery of the beautiful Drakensberg mountains, all the great Lesotho Ponies, a well kept Backpackers and the loveliest staff, made up the best experience we had. One of the best places to stay in SA. We took a whole day and a sunset ride and both were amazing. I cannot reccomend this place enough !

We had a really amazing time during our 3 days trek in Lesotho. Steve and all the crew was really friendly, helpful and we were treated more as family members than costumers. The experience with the horses was great and all the horses were treated great and were the best! Our local guid was also amazing. The lodge in Lesotho was basic but more than sufficient and the local bread was amazing.

The hostel is placed in an amazing spot, next to rock pools and mountains. We slept in the cozy Rondavels, and we enjoyed the food cooked by the staff. Unfortunately, We did not have time for a horse riding but next time we will.

We were supposed to stay at Khotso for 2 nights, but ended up staying 4. The location is great when you'd like to do one of their horse rides, hiking or touring the Sani Pass up to Lesotho. Also, the staff was very friendly and provided us with great service as well as some good stories about Africa. The accommodation is simple but very comfy - the fire place in the living room was awesome! You can also sign up for breakfast (cold/warm) or dinner, which was always delicious and prepared with love. Definitely recommended!
