Cruising the beauty that is South Africa there's one thing you cannot afford to miss: The Drakensberg! And there's nowhere better to stay than here at Khotso! Our 1300 hectare working horse and sheep farm is minutes away from the Berg and famous Sani Pass.

Tel: +27 (0)82 412 5540
Property Facilities:
Once back at the farm our friendly staff is more than willing to point you in the direction of one of the beautiful hikes around our 1300 hectare of land. Stop off at Blue's pool for a cooling dip and a jump from the waterfall. Alternatively, a hot summer's day is best spent floating down the river in one of our tubes.
For large groups and corporate events, we are more than happy to organise a whole day program for you filled with activities such as orienteering, raft building and horse relay races.

Area Information:
Khotso is a working horse and sheep farm located on 1300 hectares of land at the foot of the Southern Drakensberg Mountains. Officially known as Tretower farm, this family run business has been operating for generations.

Originally sheep were the main source of income, however the constant attacks from jackal made it almost impossible to maintain a profit. It was decided that a backpackers and horse trails were the way forward and in the early 90s, Khotso opened her doors to the first travellers.

Since then, Khotso has grown to become the most established horse trail stables in the Southern Drakensberg, the most comfortable self-catering in Kwazulu Natal and the most chilled out backpackers in South Africa.

In Room Facilities:
Backpackers Lodge: En Suite, Double, Twin and Dorm options. Free tea and coffee. Towels available for en suite bookings. Wifi access in all rooms. All have easy access to a well-equipped farm kitchen, shared shower and toilet facilities, and a large cosy lounge area around a fireplace complete with honesty bar.

Attractions:
Feeling adventurous and want to go further afield? Take a short drive down to Ukahlamba National Park and try one of their clearly mapped out hikes, such as the famous Rhino's Peak or Sleeping Beauty Cave. Maybe even spend a night in a cave and make it a 2 day hike.

With 7km of river front there is plenty of (trout) fishing to be done. For more information regarding other waters in the area go to the Underberg Himeville Trout Fishing Club.

Also there are 4 different mountain bike trails of varying distances on offer, one more stunning than the other. Bikes can be rented in town. For Mountain Biking enthusiasts our farm forms a large part of the Sani Spoors circuitry.

Furthermore, local operators, whom we will gladly contact for you will take you out on 4X4 trails up the Sani Pass or water rafting through some gnarly rapids.

Go and try some awesome cheeses at the Underberg Cheesery, and work your way through some deliciousness and some crafts at Puckety Farm or check the history at the Himeville Museum.

Absolutely sublime stay. The nature and farm are beautiful and well maintained. The facilities are cleaned and have everything you need. The animals are happy and well cared for. The people are incredible and helpful, and the ambiance is truly special. Would thoroughly recommend Khotso not only for camping, but also the backpackers dorms and chalets too.
Superb. 5 out of 5

On arrival one thinks you are in a British countryside as the log house is surrounded by rolling green hills scattered with sheep, cows and some 100 horses. The basic but clean accommodation was enjoyed by our group of 11 and each day was filled with activities, from walks, tubing down the river and horse riding. What made our stay was meeting the owner Steve in passing and on our last day chatting over a cup of tea. He is most hospitable and entertaining. We will definitely go back.

Our family had a great time at Khotso. The campsite is small so peaceful, the staff friendly and welcoming. The surroundings are beautiful! Highly recommended if you're looking for a chilled time in nature. We also liked that it's not far from Underberg.

Thank you for an amazing time and sharing your beautiful farm with us. The horse riding was awesome. Just two things I would have liked. More towels.. We were 3 people and not two and some chairs on that beautiful deck to enjoy the view. Otherwise we were so happy there. Thank you.

Sani Pass and the beautiful hikes in the area. Close to the Umzimkulu River for rafting and tubing. Horse riding and golf. So much to do.

Small, Quiet, not a lot of people, and the most breath taking scenery in the country.
The Golf Club supplies fantastic meals for really good prices.

Beautiful area. Having snow on the mountains added to the charm immensely but there are certainly so many places to visit and see. Our main purpose of our visit was to do the CHOC Walk up Sani Pass so didnt allow for too much touring time but definitely saw places we would go and visit on a return trip to the Underberg.
