Day # 6 - HIMEVILLE (SA) to THABA-TSEKA (Lesotho) 266kms
Having relaxed after yesterday’s Sani descent and having enjoyed a wonderful breakfast, we are off – destination Lesotho again!!
125kms of pleasant, twisting and undulating country roads. Then we’re onto the more off-road mountain trails climbing up to 2300m where our next border called Ramatseliso’s Gate is. Having passed this – frequently no-one on the Lesotho side so you won’t get a stamp in your passport – we start the winding descent through valleys and past isolated mountain villages until we reach the tarmac. Final 33kms on road to our accommodation in this local town. A privately-owned guesthouse, very friendly, helpful staff, good food ----- a local experience! Maybe have a wander around the local area and take the chance to chat to some Sotho people.
Time and weather permitting, we might make a visit to the Sehlabathebe National Park on the way.
