Backpackers lodge Drakesnberg


Khotso – Backpackers Lodge, Horse Trails, Self-Catering Accommodation, Campsite, Overlanders, Lesotho Expedition

When travelling across 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 only a short drive away from the famous Sani Pass.

Use Khotso as your basecamp to explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site for ‘exceptional natural beauty’. With horse riding as our speciality, we will take you on horse trails across our farm ridges or a multi-day cross-border horseback adventure deep into the mountains to Lesotho.

You can hike till you drop, mountain bike, canoe, raft, swim, fish and all in the most breathtaking scenery.

All our accommodation is conveniently spread out so as to offer each what they need: a party at the backpackers, peace and quiet for families in the Rondawels or a jol in our fantastic hand-built log cabin for large groups.
