Thank you!


MEALS: are served at the lodge. 

CHECK IN TIME is from 14h00 to 20h00; check out time is by 12h00.


There is WiFi available which makes use of the Vodacom Lesotho mobile tower which provides 3G.  Provided the weather is good (strong winds, multiple cloudy days affect the signal) internet is stable. The first 50MB are for free and thereafter, WIFI vouchers are available at the Bar for R50 for 500MB. Sometimes during the evenings and over weekends, the internet can be really slow, depending on how many people are accessing the Vodacom Lesotho mobile tower.

We do strongly recommend that you bring your own 3G toggle/modem and purchase a Vodacom Lesotho sim at any Vodacom Lesotho store or at the border posts where you can also register the sim using your passport as an ID before you get to Malealea. Purchase some prepaid airtime and transfer to data. This is your best bet if you want to work whilst in Lesotho.

Linen and towels are provided, except for the forest hut rates.

Gas Heaters are available for hire @ R100 per room per night during the winter months. 


Band and Choir perform every evening from 5:30 - 6:30pm in the summer months and from 5:00 - 6:00 from May to September for a small donation.
