Overnight in the scenic town of Ficksburg, at the gateway to the Maloti Mountians. Enjoy hospitality at our Guest House, centrally situated and only a five minute drive from the Lesotho border. Five Cottages and a rondawel are set in a private garden.

The Guest house is centrally situated on the MALOTLI ROUTE, an innovative and exciting initiative that spans the borders between South Africa and the mountain kinqdom of Lesotho. The Route covers areas of Lesotho, Eastern Cape and the Eastern Free State, opening up this spectacular region and enriching the experiences of all who travel this way. The Maloti Route provides travellers with on unparalleled opportunity to experience a diversity of cultures.
It also provides an opportunity to contrast the two countries, which have very different histories.

Lesotho’s mountainous terrain and high altitude has earned itself names such as the Kingdom in the Sky and the ‘Roof of Africa” after the well known annual off-road sporting event. Present and past co-exist harmoniously and modern vehicles can often be seen passing by the more traditional and still popular mode of transport the ‘Basotho Pony’ whose rider wears a colourful Lesotho blanket draped over his shoulders and the famous conical- shaped Lesotho hat - ‘mokorotlo’.

The Route through South Africa winds through agricultural lands, small towns and villages in both the the Eastem Free State and Northern part of the Eastern Cape.
The Maloti Route - a truly idyllic meander through awe inspiring natural beauty and scenic mountains - where you can visit friendly villages and towns, follow where dinosaurs prowled and left footprints, fly fish, enjoy arts and crafts of the highest quality, visit rock art sites or just soak up the breathtaking scenery.

For the more adventurous there are horse trails, ski slopes, and 4x4 and hiking trails. Accommodation along the route includes farms & village stays, self catering cottages, luxury lodges and homely B&Bs.

Come and discover the Maloti Route, the ultimate adventure experience in the most scenic towns and villaqes within our untamed mountain vistas.

Guided Tours to the Katse dam and various places of interest can be arranged.
