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.

We stayed at the backpacker part in a double en-suite room. Room was great and shower as well, but the thing is, the room is less important when surrounded by beautiful farm land and the mountains views, great staff and other travelers. We really enjoyed are stay there. The horse ride is a must.

We stayed there for three nights with friends, and it was by far our best backpackers experience in South Africa. Very quiet and nicely decorated place, excellent breakfast,and an extremely arranging host. It's just a peaceful place, and it can be easily attested by all the animals living around: they are calm, friendly and playful, this is the best proof that this is a good place to stay.

We camped for one night during the week out of season & had the lovely spot all to ourselves.Both the communal kitchen and ablutions were spotless.Kids rode bikes, loved the friendly dogs & explored. Lovely walks ans 30 min's deive to Drakensberg reserve. Owners, Lulu and Steve were such friendly, great hosts. We enjoyed the cozy backpackers lounge area with crackling fire on a cold night, playing board games. Had a lovely time.
