On the slopes of the Maluti Mountains and overlooking the spectacular Katse Dam in the Lesotho Highlands, the Orion Katse Lodge commands spectacular views in all directions. Guests are welcome to enjoy very comfortable three-star accommodation and will be delighted with the range of facilities and friendly service to be experienced at this beautiful location.

Known as 'The Kingdom in the Sky', all of Lesotho lies over 1000 meters above sea-level, and it is a very mountainous land, criss-crossed by hundreds of rivers that offer some excellent freshwater fishing.; The terrain also makes it a popular destination for keen hikers, mountain-bikers, 4x4 enthusiasts and horse riders. The country is entirely landlocked within South Africa, is sparsely populated and its people are recognized for their distinctive conical hats and friendly demeanor.


Accommodation is provided in 53 rooms classified at Standard Twin, Sharing Rooms and Self-catering cottages (with equipped kitchens). There is also a dormitory area suitable for visiting school groups. Most of the accommodation is afforded wonderful views of the dam and surrounding mountains.
