The drive up the 38km valley to Maliba is in itself a great experience with the friendly local people smiling and waving as you slowly wendle your way upwards. On arrival the individual cottage rooms are well appointed and fitted out. The first of our 3 nights stay was a billy no mates evening as we were the only guests...

We recently spent two days at Maliba and had the must wonderful time. The lodges are top notch, the staff bend over backwards to help and the food amazing. As for the scenery !!! If you want to experience Lesotho, it is easy to get to from the Qwa Qwa park and it's a safe and welcoming destination. Highly recommended....

While visiting my daughter who lives near the lodge, we spend an afternoon there for lunch and hiking. High complements to the chef: the food was superb and the setting was beautiful. Other staff were friendly and helpful as well. We did not stay over, however, we did see the rooms which are luxurious, without being ostentatious. Even though this...

Our family of 6 adults spent two nights right after Christmas. The acommodations were quite nice - in room wifi, fine dining, well stocked mini-bar, pitcher of drinking water in room. Service was painfully slow for breakfast and lunch on the terrace. Hiking trails were not well marked or described, but we enjoyed a pleasant hike. Staff were helpful and...

This hotel is quite a drive to get to being some way from anything else. However, it is worth the effort and views are great. The room was very high quality with a king size bed, fridge and pretty much anything you need. The meals served were of very good quality and the staff friendly and helpful. The only black...

Maliba is incredibly special. Most of the staff comes from the area, and their level of training and sophistication is simply superb. The huts are perfect and really cozy, the decoration is fantastic. The fireplace makes it ideal and we chose to have dinner in the room every night, which was exquisitely prepared and served. We also had nice massages....

A unique experience you can't get in very many places in the world. Very luxurious by African standards. The staff mostly come from the local villages, so remember that. They try their best and do a good job considering there's nothing else of this level in the country. I stayed in one of the cabins, which are just beautiful. While...

We, me and my family, enjoyed our stay in Lesotho Maliba Lodge. The tranquility of the lodge is priceless. Our only wish is that the facility can add more activities, especially fun games for kids. Otherwise the place is good. Unfortunately for us, we traveled during the drought period, so the river was dry. But we could tell that it...
