Very friendly people, very arranging. The fire place is great :) There a lot a things you can do in the region such as hiking, poney trails and all sort of stuff they can organize for you. Great place to relax and enjoy the Drakensberg.

What a great weekend. Super hosts. Love the "honesty" factor (honesty bar). Stated in a twin room although I ordered a double but a good time nonetheless. Great nature trails. Board games and the like around the fire, what a weekend.

My husband and I spent our first anniversary at Khotso. We stayed in one of the rondewals and it was just perfect for us. They are so cleverly designed that you have a romantic getaway or family holiday. I would suggest asking for the bottom rondewal as it offers a little more privacy. The rondewals are quite close together but...

Horse Trails are excellent as is the hiking. Take your bicycles. A place that kids will love. Owners and all who work there are passionate and super friendly. Hot water was very intermittent from gas geyser which was reported a few times, frustrating but not the end of the world. Modt of the camp sites are on the small side...

Went for the double en-suite room - was more spacious and comfortable then expected. All hosts (and pets) were very welcoming and friendly and also allowed guests to make themselves at home using the kitchen, bbq, lounge and bar. They helped us with activities and there's plenty to do straight from the farm and local area, including hiking and horse...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Khotso Horse Trails and Accommodation, deep in the Southern Drakensberg, is both a working horse and sheep farm and a perfect base to either 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 to 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. ... more   less
