      A beautiful location which is well with the drive to reach it. The views of the mountains from the deck of the Mountain Lodge and the views of the river from the River Cottages will leave you speechless. Very well kept and clean accomadation. The only strange thing was that it seemed that the braai facility was shared between the four River lodges. Otherwise the cottages are well stocked themselves with everything you need for you stay.

      My family and I had a road trip to Lesotho. As my sister in law has a gluten allergy , we made a reservation weeks in advance and stated this. When we arrived at the lodge, they had no record of our reservation even though I have it in writing.

      Our stay at Maliba was the highlight of our trip to Lesotho. The friendly staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs. The river lodge is beautifully set between the mountains alongside the river. The rooms was spacious and the fireplace was a bonus. We will definitely return especially when there are snow and when the new boma area is completed. Thanks again.

      Food was outstanding. River lodge unmatched scenery. Geyser too small for a family.
