Katse Lodge

by sunscreen202 about Katse Lodge

Katse Lodge is probably the best place to stay if you're visiting the Katse Dam in Lesotho, one of its main tourist attractions. Built mainly to house the contractors who worked on the construction of the dam, it's a sort of low common denominator Holiday Inn - a very quiet one when we were there - but the magnificent view of the dame and surroundings make up for it. Rooms are comfortable and clean... get one outside the main building for peace and quiet. When we were there, their credit card machine was down so take some cash with (about $80 per night). It's a good place to use as a base to explore the region with. It's a totally unspoilt area (save for the dam of course). Great location

Travel Tips for Maseru

THABA BOSIU - the Royal Cemetery

by madbal

If you'd like to take a bow to the greatest king of the Sotho People, visit THABA BOSIU near Maseru!

Chief Moshesh (later called Moshoeshoe), settled at Thaba Bosiu (Mountain of the Night) in 1824, after retreating from the terror of Shaka, the Zulu King. The flat -topped stronghold of Thaba Bosiu rapidly gained fame and proved impregnable to all comers until shortly before Moshoeshoe’s death in 1870. The tribe quickly increased in strength and pride and started to call themselves Basotho or Sotho people, and their small kingdom, Lesotho. There is a visitors information centre at the base of the hill and a guide will accompany you to the top and entertain you with stories of hardship and war. There are substantial remains of the King’s dwellings and the royal cemetery of Lesotho. Views from the summit extend far and wide and you can see Qiloane pinnacle, which is the inspiration for the top-knot on the traditional Basotho hat.

Roma, University

by madbal

"Every way leads to Rome" - but this small town is called Roma. This is the University city of Lesotho. They are only few buildings around the university campus.

Roma is a university town in a scenic valley 35km from Maseru. It can be approached from the south through an impressive gorge. To the north is the Ha Baroana gallery of Bushmen paintings which tell stories of past lives in these hills.
