The warm and friendly atmosphere, created by their nice staff, volunteers and the owners, who are all genuinly happy to have you back and interested in your stories. The living room with a cute, little bar, a small library with books...

Point to note: This place is a BP lodge and that's how it's being reviewed. If you want a hotel and 4 or 5 star luxury this place is not for you. What it is however is set in a particularly nice spot outside Underberg and is MUCH better than most such places I've visited. The kitchen appeared well kept...

We had wonderful horse riding trips into the Drakensberg with a very reliable guide. The Rondawel was comfortable. and we saw the big herd of horses coming to the farm in the morning. Great farm. The horses, that were used for riding were in good shape. Welcoming warm staff - managers and volunteers.

Excellent site and outdoor activities. A wonderful venue for a spiritual getaway. I would recommend Khotso to any small group, family or couples that want to travel light but still get the full...

We stayed in one of the rondavels, and my review will be of these units. It is deceivingly spacious inside with a full kitchen, lounge with small fire place, a double room downstairs, bathroom with shower, and then a few single beds in the solder upstairs. It is the perfect setup for a family getaway, or friends going on an...

This was one of the most notable stays during our 6 months world trip. The place is nicely located and you immediately feel at home and as one of the family. The owner Steve is a wonderful and kind character. They organized a two day horse trail in to Lesotho for us and this was an experience of a lifetime!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Khotso Horse Trails and Accommodation, deep in the Southern Drakensberg, is both a working horse and sheep farm and a perfect base to either explore, adventure or relax. Khotso is famous in the area for its spectacular horse trails, which range from 1-hour rides to 3-day cross-border expeditions into Lesotho. There is the rustic and lively Backpackers Lodge, a new campsite with kitchen and ablution block in the orchard next to the mountain stream, as well as 3 newly refurbished self-catering rondawels overlooking a private gorge behind. Enjoy the idyllic life that comes with living in the mountains, far away from the hustle and bustle in the towns and cities. Spend precious time with friends and family in your own rondawel or head to the Lodge for the sociable atmosphere to embrace the wonderful characters that travel here from all over the world. With the full 1 000 hectare farm at your disposal, ride over the ridge tops on horseback, hike to one of the mineral water pools, swim or fish the Umzimkulu river, mountain bike the extensive single track routes, or just take time out from your hectic day-to-day routine to relax and unwind by a fire under the stars in the breathtaking scenery of the Southern Drakensberg. ... more   less
