About Mehloding Adventure Trail & Chalets

Mehloding Adventure Trail & Chalets offers a choice of four welcoming chalets in the little-explored Southern Drakensberg in the Ongeluksnek Valley at the border between the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Lesotho. Constructed by local people with traditional designs and materials, they offer a unique getaway destination for family groups, backpackers and adventure seekers.

Rustic yet homely, the accommodation features hot showers, flush toilets, a boma, separate bedrooms with linen and towels, and a communal lounge and kitchen for either self-catering or catered accommodation. All offer private seclusion, with stunning views of mountains and rural scenery. Each chalet is equipped for up to 12 people and has permanent staff for daily servicing. Gas cooking facilities and paraffin lamps are also provided.

The Mehloding Chalets are an ideal base to explore the local area, whether you are hiking, mountain biking or simply relaxing in the beautiful scenery, and each chalet serves as an overnight stopover for people doing the Mehloding Adventure Trail.

The chalets and trails are a community-based and operated product which aspires to benefit local communities through the provision of employment opportunities and involvement in sustainable eco-tourism opportunities. The Mehloding Community Trust which runs the Masakala Lodge and the Mehloding Chalets is a member of the Fair Trade in Tourism SA organization and subscribes to their ethics and code of practice.
