History and Background
We are an outdoor and lifestyle family company based in Randfontein South, Gauteng. We have been in operation since 2015 hosting and facilitating themed camps and monthly hikes in and around South Africa and Lesotho. Our family is also based in Lesotho.
Over and above hosting outdoor events, we are also motoring enthusiasts contributing content (vehicles and motorbikes) to various media houses, namely:
• Public Eye Newspaper, Lesotho
• In4Ride, http://www.in4ride.net
• Master Drive
The Annual Lesotho Cultural Tour came about as a result of our love for travelling and our Basotho culture. We then thought it would be befitting to offer travelers an experience like no other. Our tours are not average, or what is currently being offered by other tour operators, who may not know the people, the culture and the language of the Mountain Kingdom. And the fact that we are jealous of where we come from, we are ever so willing to showcase what Lesotho and its humble people has to offer.
The cultural tour started as a bike only event last year, but due to demand we have had to include cars, hopefully to win them into motorbiking.
The first Annual Mokorotlo Cultural Ride Lesotho – 2022
We left Gauteng on Friday morning to arrive in Lesotho in the afternoon. After crossing the border, we had lunch at Qhanolla Lodge, Botha-buthe. And when the food had settled, we headed towards our lodge, called Mamohase Home Stay B&B to check in. The road to the lodge from the main road is about 2 kilometers of gravel, which is rideable even with a road bike.
Prior to a home cooked dinner, we gathered around the fire and the local men entertained us with traditional music and praise songs. All this happened while we enjoyed a choice of either traditional home brewed beer, or the most sought after Maluti Premium Beer.
The following morning, after a traditional breakfast, we headed out towards the district of Maseru, where we had lunch. In Maseru we visited the Thaba Bosiu Cultural Village tour, which gave an in- depth history of the Basotho nation, how it came about, their culture and heritage. Enroute to our lodge for the evening, we did a tour through the Sani Wines vineyards and enjoyed some horse riding from the community of Ha Ntsi, Nazareth. Our lodge for the night is situated a few kilometers up the road, where we checked in and prepared a braai.
Sunday morning, after breakfast and before heading for the border on our return back home, we visited the local chief.
