About Pony Trekking
No visit to Lesotho would be complete without a pony trek. It is the transport of choice for most Basotho as the sturdy ponies handle the narrow trails better than any 4X4 can.
Pony treks can be arranged in the morning or the afternoon. Beginner riders can ask for a young person to accompany their horse and lead them at a rate of R15.00 per hour, paid directly.
Overnight treks are tailor-made to your requirements. They can last from one day to six days and even longer. On your trek you will experience “THE REAL AFRICA”. Trails traverse spectacular mountain passes and some of Lesotho’s highest waterfalls. You can explore Bushman paintings and experience Basotho culture.
Accommodation on treks is provided in huts hired from the Basotho people in remote areas. The huts are very basic and are equipped with a gas cooker, cooking and eating utensils and mattresses on the floor.
No riding experience is necessary for an overnight trek. Basotho Guides and a packhorse accompany the treks.
