Khotso Horse Trails and Accommodation, deep in the Southern Drakensberg, is both a working horse and sheep farm and a perfect base to either explore, adventure or relax. Khotso is famous in the area for its spectacular horse trails, which range from 1-hour rides to 3-day cross-border expeditions into Lesotho. There is the very cosy Backpackers Lodge, a new campsite with kitchen and ablution block in the orchard next to the mountain stream, as well as 3 newly refurbished self-catering rondawels overlooking a private gorge behind. Enjoy the idyllic life that comes with living in the mountains, far away from the hustle and bustle in the towns and cities. Spend precious time with friends and family in your own rondawel or head to the Lodge for the sociable atmosphere to embrace the wonderful characters that travel here from all over the world. With the full 1 000 hectare farm at your disposal, ride over the ridge tops on horseback, hike to one of the mineral water pools, swim or fish the Umzimkulu river, mountain bike the extensive single track routes, or just take time out from your hectic day-to-day routine to relax and unwind by a fire under the stars in the breathtaking scenery of the Southern Drakensberg.

Khotso Lodge & Horse Trails is a great establishment with amazing staff. The dinner and breakfasts we had were hearty, tasty meals made with love. We stayed in one of the rondawels, which was clean and well equipped. The mattresses on the beds were a little worn out and soft, but other than that everything was perfect.

We stayed in one of the rondavel’s and we were very impressed with the facilities. The rondavels are nice and cosy and a we utilized the indoor fireplace (wood was even provided!), so this would be a great winter stay as well.

As a family we just had one night to camp over at Khotso Trails. We were greeted with happy smiles and immediately felt at home. The campsite is well equipped and set beautifully amongst the trees and along the stream with a backdrop of a small rocky hill side. The facilities are an easy few steps from the campsite and the Reception / Backpackers offers further comfort in a central sitting room. A longer stay next time will be planned for!

This place exceeded our exceptions. We camped, and a few friends stayed in the rondavel. I cannot fault one thing. The staff were amazing, the camp spots were amazing, and friends that were in thr rondavel said they could not be faulted. They took us on an epic tubing river ride. Already planning our next khotso holiday.

Chill out and marvel at beautiful scenery and the sound of birds and horses. Comfortable accommodation with full kitchen. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the rondawel in the front which was very private.
