Rebecca Coetzee visited Maliba in February and took some great photo while she was there. She sent them to us to enter our “photo of the month” competition and we think this particular one is worthy of a prize. A big thank you to Rebecca for sending us this image. Rebecca has won herself a Maliba Mountain Lodge peak cap which we will be sending to her shortly.
Steven (from Maliba Lodge) (wearing one of the iSangoma’s head-dresses) accompanied us on a visit to the village and the local Medicine woman. Some of her ‘lotions & potions’ are visible in the background. A big thank you to Pamela for sending us this image. Pamela has won herself a Maliba Mountain Lodge peak cap which we will be sending to her shortly.
Photo of the month – December 2011 Although coined as a “lucky shot” Graham has managed to capture a real gem of a photo with this one for the mountain tops around Sehlabathebe National Park on the South Eastern border of Lesotho.
The Blanketwrap is excited to announce the winner of it’s first photo contest. The contest’s theme was, “Lesotho” and there is no denying that there is no end to the amount of photographic opportunities available in the mountain Kingdom. Before we announce the winners, we’d like to extend a huge thank you to all our facebook fans who had the mighty task of picking the overall winner of the 2 Night stay for two people at Maliba Mountain Lodge. And…
The BaSotho live in round huts, developed over centuries to accommodate the extreme and fast-changing mountain weather that Lesotho is exposed to.
Africa never ceases to amaze me. Over thirty years of living on this continent and there are still surprises to be had and many roads to be more travelled. And so it was when my husband and I travelled to Lesotho for the first time for a weekend at Maliba Mountain Lodge.
On the spur of the moment we decided to start our year off somewhere beautiful and not sorting our house out at home as we had originally intended. A few Internet searches led us to the Maliba Lodge Website and we were sold. Seeing as this was a treat we decided to treat ourselves the whole way and book into the Mountain Lodge, even though the River Lodge looked as appealing.
