Taking a break on a training weekend for the “Roof of Africa“, we visit Semonkong (“Place of Smoke”). Partly because the Lodge lunch comes highly rated, but mostly to see the famous Maletsunyane Falls. Neither disappoints.
Burgers and chips go down awesomely with ice cold Coca-Cola, and the 204m single drop waterfall captivates. It’s as if the Earth gave an ancient yawn, etching a huge canyon into the landscape. Even in dry September the relatively small cascade is impressive, the highest in Southern Africa. Here’s another indelible memory of the “Mountain Kingdom” and its irresistible terrain.
No wonder Lesotho beckons the world’s best enduro riders back for more.
Roll on “The Roof” in November!
