About Khotso Lodge & Horse Trails

When in South Africa there’s one thing you cannot afford to miss, the Drakensberg, and there’s nowhere better to stay than here, at Khotso. Our 1,300-hectare working horse and sheep farm is nestled at the foot of this majestic mountain range and is only minutes away from the famous Sani Pass.

Use Khotso as your base to explore this World Heritage Site. We will take you on horse trails or guided hikes deep into the mountains, or you can mountain bike, canoe, raft, swim and fish, all in the most amazing scenery. Our accommodation is conveniently spread out so as to offer each complete privacy.

We offer the most amazing, chilled out spot in the country, if not the Southern Hemisphere, and we encourage everyone to come out here and bring their own charm.

                                              It was the highlight of our long weekend! The kitchen is so clean and well kept and the bathrooms were amazing! We could only hear the stream and jackals and couldn't stop staring at the stars! It was wonderful going for a morning walk with their dogs and the hosts catered to our every need! We will definitely be going back!!

                                              Great place. Good value for money. Worth coming in a group.

                                              We loved every minute of our stay. The children loved the horses, hikes and streams.

                                              The camping grounds were beautiful with such peace and stunning views. We had a restful night az well as an awesome trail run! Will be back for longer next time

                                              What a lovely little spot, clean ablutions, grassed campsites right on the river edge so you can hear the gurgling water at night.
