Maliba-Lodge-Fire-1I woke up to a popping sound, not sure what it was, I walked to my curtain thinking it was snow on the satellite dish.As I opened the curtain I saw the flames protruding from the roof towards the bar side, and instantly the sky light caved into the building. With shock I just started shouting, ran to wake my management team, Martin, Melany, Kevin to get the staff, following which I ran to room 6 and told them as calmly as I could to pack their things and move to the security gate.

Lesotho Wildrun Set to Dazzle Again

Lesotho Wildrun Set to Dazzle Again

Lesotho-wildrun-logoThe fourth Lesotho Wildrun is set to take place in March 2014 and trail runners from across South Africa are raring to make the trek to their neighbouring country for a weekend of inspiration and perspiration.
