In the tranquillity of one of the most beautiful settings in Southern Africa, lies the Maluti Mountain Range.  Located High in this Magnificent range is the home of Oxbow Lodge.

The Lodge is reached via the glorious Moteng Pass which tops out at 2800 meters and then descends to the Lodge in a valley 8km from the summit, on the banks of the Mailbamatsoe River.  The road is tarred all the way and accessible by car, and takes the traveller through some of the most breathtaking scenery in Southern Africa.  

Space and peace is what you will find when you treat yourself to the natural splendour of this award winning Lodge.  An energetic walk to the top of the mountain will give you views that you can only dream of and if its warm enough take a dip in the pure rock pools.

Oxbow is very popular with outdoor enthusiasts.  Relaxation comes very easily with the sound of the flowing waterfall and river.

This Lodge is gaining a reputation as the ideal place to leave the world and its stresses behind.  The Lodge runs on a generator, with fireplaces in the main building that provide lots of warmth in the winter.  

Oxbow Lodge has been awarded the International Golden Award for Tourist, Hotel and Catering Industry for several years.  The years awarded are between 1991 – 2007.

Some of our valued visitors include Kings, Queens and Prime Ministers.
