The Kingdom of Lesotho sits at more than 1000m above sea level and gives this small country its other name, the "Kingdom in the Sky". This luxurious lodge offers a tranquil retreat set in a pristine high altitude, sub alpine wilderness valley deep in the north of Lesotho`s breath-taking Maluti and Drakensburg Mountains. The lodge is situated within the borders of Ts’ehlanyane National Park, a four and a half hour drive from Johannesburg and six hours from Durban on tarred roads.

Health & Climate:
The climate of TNP, like high altitude areas elsewhere in Lesotho, is characterized by extremes of temperature, precipitation and wind speed.
As might be expected from the altitude of the park, temperatures are generally low, even in summer.
Considerable variations occur with changes in altitude and aspect.
North-facing slopes are generally warmer (and have different slope gradients) than south –facing slopes, which are generally cooler.
This is as a result of differences in incoming radiation.
Steep south-facing slopes are especially cold in winter because they receive little direct sun and are often shaded by surrounding mountains.
