About Masakala Traditional Guest House
Situated in the friendly rural village of Masakala, close to Matatiele and on the border of the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal, this guest house offers a stunning view of the Southern Drakensberg and Ukhahlamba Mountains forming the border with the Kingdom of Lesotho.
Masakala provides safe parking for hikers on the Mehloding Adventure Trail as well as a comfortable and secure base for overnight visitors who wish to discover the beautiful surroundings of the region.
Masakala has just been awarded an AA Quality Assurance grading. Two rondavels specially designed and built using local architectural ideas and skills offer a choice of single, double or dormitory-style sleeping arrangements. Traditional yet comfortable, the accommodation offers hot showers and baths and four beautifully decorated rooms.
As the sun sets and the evening draws in, enjoy a friendly meal prepared by the local catering group - home-grown vegetables, fresh produce and African recipes are on the menu, alongside conventional fare. We also cater for vegetarians on request.
For first time visitors and tourists to the area, we arrange local tours such as meeting local sangomas and traditional entertainment. Come and discover the Matatiele area by engaging in short hikes with local guides or take a horseback ride on a Basutho pony, suitable for both beginners and advanced riders.
