Stay – Khotso Horse Trails and Backpackers

If you are travelling in the Southern Drakensberg region, do not miss the chance to use Khotso as your base camp. It is ideal if you are exploring Drakensberg, day-tripping around the Midlands and venturing into Lesotho.

As soon as you arrive you will be welcomed by the staff, 2 or 4 legged ones, and made to feel like family in an instance. The main house where there dorms are is the old house of *S and *L (who now live up the road on the same plot), who has made it into a homely country-style farmhouse over the years. I have to admit it was the first time I’d felt at home in a long time. Choose from a bed in the farmhouse or a rondavel with an ensuite or even the log cabin, the choice is yours.

I could rant on about this place and the staff but I won’t give you the pleasure. I suggest you go and experience it for yourself. And while you’re there, say hi to the team from me!
