Mountain Biking

JM80020130522-608886

 Semonkong Lodge is ideally located in the centre of some of the best mountain biking in Lesotho as well as the world. You can easily ride out for a 6 hour adventure as long as your legs are strong or shorter rides around to the Maletsunyane Falls with of routes in between, even for novice mountain bikers. The terrain varies from divisional gravel roads that climbs out of the valley which travel in all directions from the lodge, or pick up on horse trails & contour tracks for more technical tough rides. The rides are all high altitude with the valley floor around 2200 meters which really gets you puffing. The air is crisp all year round, and on longer outrides it is good to be prepared for fast changing weather conditions, so important to take enough juice, snack bars & a wind breaker.

It is also good to inform the Lodge where you are heading as they have great knowledge of the area. Take your mobile as well, as there is a tower high on the ridge which is almost always in range for reception. Own bicycles are required.

This location will have you coming back every year for more…
