The location is unusual, but the views are truly spectacular once you get there. The lodge was originally accommodation for engineers building the Katse Dam. Unfortunately the hotel urgently needs investment in the bedrooms and bathrooms - everything was functional, but basic and dated. The beds were dreadfully soft and creaky - if I spent money on one thing, it would be new beds. Some rooms have to share bathrooms. We turned down the first room because someone had been smoking in there. Having said all that, it is probably the only hotel in the area and it is acceptable. The staff are doing the best they can on a limited budget. Food was fine. The Katse Dam tour is essential for all visitors and well recommended. This is a truly beautiful area and our holiday was truly unforgettable.

The Lodge is an ideal starting point for travelers wishing to explore Lesotho’s mountain kingdom. For the adventurous, drive the robustly constructed alpine roads to Mohale Lodge, and experience the stark desolate landscape with traditional villages, untouched by time. Return to the lodge after a day of exploration and adventure dine in comfort, with unobstructed views of the glimmering waterscape, and then relax in front of the inviting fireplace. Katse Lodge offers genuine warmth and old-fashioned hospitality, making it one of Lesotho’s best-kept secrets. ... more less
