Lesotho - Maseru to Malealea Day Trip 4th February 2018

Kotisephola Pass (Lesotho) - Mountain Passes of South Africa

This pass is to all intents and purposes and extension of the Sani Pass. Whilst we normally do not cover passes outside of South Africa, we have documented this pass (a) for its lofty, oxygen starved, summit altitude of 3292m ASL and (b) for the peculiar phenomenon of the Chinese built multi-lane highway converting this seldom used old jeep track with exceptionally low traffic volumes. There are several conspiracy theories, but you decide. South Africa outdoor adventure enthusiasts and nature lovers are vehemently against the proposed tarring of the Sani Pass (the most iconic South African pass), suggesting that it would ruin the delicate adventure tourism industry in KZN. It seems weird that there will be a 180 km long multi-billion Dollar, multi-lane tarred highway built from Thabe Tseka and Mohkotlong to the top of the Sani Pass, where-after you need to be in a 4WD vehicle (a legal/safety requirement and justifiably so) to enter the South Africa. So what are the normal cars going to do travelling from Lesotho, when they get to Sani Top? Turn around and go back into Lesotho? There's something fishy going on here. My opinion is that the tarring of Sani Pass is being kept under wraps, but it will ultimately take place. I hope I'm wrong.

If you want to make a noise about this, I suggest you get onto the correct government department and start making inquiries. {Dept of Transport}

Mohale Dam Flash Mob Video 1

We visited the Mohale Dam in Lesotho, Southern Africa but arrived during lunchtime so had to wait for the guide to return from lunch. There was a group there from the National University of Lesotho, waiting for the tour to start. To while away the waiting time, they started singing and dancing. It was great to see them having so much fun and we got a great kick out of watching them.

Moyeni is also referred to as Quthing and is the only town in this region. Moyeni, or Quthing, is the capital town of the Quthing region and has a total population of around 130 000 residents in the area.

Seaka Bridge is one of the iconic places in Lesotho. The bridge is a colonial legacy. The bridge was manufactured in Worcester, England and erected at Commissioner drift, over Caledon River in 1882, having been brought up from the coast on ox wagon and re-erected in Seaka with the help of a grant from the United Kingdom Colonial Development and Welfare Fund. It was officiated and opened on the 12th December 1959.

Seaka is one of the most attractive places in Lesotho. It has two iconic bridges one build during colonial period and the new one build in the early 1990s.
