"Wayfarer, Pause and Look Upon
A Gateway of Paradise"

Inscription in the rock by Mervyn Bosworth-Smith, founder of Malealea, Trading Station in the early 1900's - now Malealea Lodge.


Lesotho is a world without fences. Breathtaking scenery abounds and every season has unique attractions. Malealea Lodge
is run by the Jones Family, Mick & Di Jones both born in Lesotho and credited with more local knowledge than anyone. Jacqui, Glenn and Debbie Jones grew up in Lesotho and Michael Deutschmann have joined the team. Various Basotho Children's choirs and a Local Basotho Band, using their local home-made instruments, entertain the guests in the evenings around a campfire.
