Polihali Lodge and Pony Trek Adventures features in the latest edition of adventure motoring magazine, Leisure Wheels. Janine Avery and her husband incorporated a trip to Lesotho in their trusty Discovery during a recent road trip for an unforgetable adventure.
Here is an excerpt from her report:
“And what a destination it was: we had arrived at Polihali Lodge, a rustic dwelling set within a traditional Lesotho village. Unfortunately, we only had one night to spend here, so we couldn’t enjoy the full wealth of what Polihali has to offer – specialising as they do in overnight pony trekking in the mountains of Lesotho – a true cultural experience without another tourist in sight.
What we did get to enjoy was an afternoon of trekking through the traditional agricultural lands, tended by the blanket-wearing Basotho with cows and sheep in tow, and a local village where women and children waved to us enthusiastically as we passed by
their homes. It’s safe to say we will have to return to experience one of their multi-day adventures through the Maluti wilderness, camping in shepherd’s huts under the vast Lesotho sky.”
