Khotso, deep in the Southern Drakensberg, is both a working horse and sheep farm and a perfect base to 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 and 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.
Khotso - surrounded by the mountains - is the perfect place to base yourself in the Southern Drakensberg for adventure and relaxation alike. Just outside Underberg and against the magnificent backdrop of SA's very own UNESCO World Heritage site for 'exceptional natural beauty', you will find Khotso's Backpackers Lodge, unique self-catering Rondawels, a giant log cabin and orchard campsite; all nestled amongst a 1 000 hectare working horse and sheep farm. The horse trail specialists in the area, we can take you out for a few hours, the whole day, at sundown, or even for a 3-day, cross-border horseback expedition into the untouched wilds of Lesotho. Alternatively, opt for a 4X4 day-trip and roar up the famous Sani Pass, chill out with a beer at the bar or braai by the stars, cascade down the rapids in a raft, mountain bike, hike, catch some trout, sample some of the fantastic restaurants and pubs in the area - the choices are all available for you here. The 'Berg is on the doorstep and with the option of your own private self-catering Rondawel or a fresh clean room at the Backpackers Lodge, you'll have everything you need at home to get the most of the mountains.
