Hotel Mount Maluti is the oldest hotel in the south of Lesotho. It is located in the town of Mohale’s Hoek, 125km south of Maseru on a good, tarred road and easily accessible from Zastron in the Free State through the Makhaleng Bridge border post. The hotel was built by the Bothma family in the 1950’s to serve the administrative and business community of Mohale’s Hoek.
After Lesotho’s independence in 1966, the need for conference and tourism facilities grew rapidly and the hotel was extended. It now has 34 en-suite bedrooms with televisions and heating. Conference rooms catering for 15-60 delegates are fitted with overhead projectors, flip charts and television/video units. Separate office facilities are also available for administrative work.
Mohale’s Hoek is one of the nine district administrations of Lesotho. Local sandstone is featured in most of the buildings in town. The town has its own mountain, which can be climbed in an hour. 4×4 Trails are also laid out in the area. The south of Lesotho is rich in traditional Basotho culture and the ethnic lifestyles of the people can be experienced at nearby villages and mission stations. Dinosaur footprints and rock art can also be seen in the south. Hotel Mount Maluti is perfectly located to take full advantage of Lesotho’s natural playground. Provisions, maps, back-ups, guides and overnight accommodation for all excursions can be arranged through the hotel.
