I’ve always heard about the wonders of a Lesotho winter with the landscape blanketed in Snow. Snow is Africa is something that’s almost unheard of, so it was a surprise when we woke up to this special view.
It was unfortunate that the park was still showing signs of fire damage but this only served to create a stark contrast to the fresh snow fall that covered the mountain peaks all around the lodge. Already there are signs of new spring growth so that it somewhat resembles a peppermint crisp.
The Manager of Maliba Lodge, Andrew informed us that this was the heaviest snow they’ve had all year, even if it was somewhat out of season.
The five star friendly treatment, service, accomadation and chef food is something to mention – it is a five star lodge to the fullest!
We had a wonderful time at Maliba and this late season snow fall was just that proverbial cherry on top of what was already a magical weekend.
