Mohale is a beautiful place. Sprawled over the sculpted mountains right in the heart of the country, it’s enveloped by sweeping highland panoramas on all sides.
And while there are only a few who come to enjoy the less-popular trekking away from Bokong and Tsehlanyane, most these days will flock into the region for a glimpse of the award-winning Mohale Dam.
Intended as a backup to the aforementioned Katse Dam, this awesome structure counts a whopping 145 meters in height and bridges a wide crest on the Senqunyane River of more than 700 meters in total!
Things to do in Mohale dam Lesotho
A very large rockfill dam, located on the Senqunyane River. Mohale offers a variety of activities such as boat cruise, pony trekking and hiking.
All these activities can be booked at the tourism office upon arrival and for tourists, weekdays are the best time to visit the dams
Day trips are spectacular
For the most thrilling experience, we jump into our vehicle and travel to Mohale Dam, (part of the Lesotho Highlands water project) where we will embark on some spectacular activities such as boating (optional) and dam tour. Frequent stops en route to allow for photographs to be taken of this spectacular landscape and mountain passes. Mouth wetting late lunch will then be served at Mohale Lodge before we tackle on a road trip back to Maseru where the tour ends.
How to get to Mohale dam Lesotho
Mohale Dam lies almost 100 km east of Maseru along the surfaced A 3 and the drive takes up to two hours. It would be easy to combine a day visit from Maseru with a short side trip to Ha Baroana, which is only 10 minutes north of the A 3 by road. Preparations: Guided tours leave from the Visitors’ Centre.
