About Us

The Morija Guest House is perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking the small historic town of Morija, in the Lesotho Lowlands (45 km south of the capital Maseru). Built of handcut stone and thatched with local grass, it blends discreetly into the environment. During the day there are commanding views of the surrounding forest and the village below. The sunsets from the front deck and the views of the night sky are unforgettable (a telescope is available). Below the main house, there are small cottages to welcome more visitors. The accommodation offered is rustic but comfortable and the rooms are tastefully decorated.

We can welcome 24 people comfortably (see details under "Facilities"). Guests can choose to cater for themselves or to order cooked meals. We are proud of our homely atmosphere where all - families or groups of friends, tourists or NGO staff, church groups or professionals - feel at ease. We also organise special weekends, some to introduce visitors to the language and the culture of Lesotho to long-term visitors and others to consolidate the teaching of French to small groups of high school or university students (See details under 'Special events').

It is an after-school centre with a small library that provides our young neighbours with a quiet place to read, study and have fun. Two young volunteers who came with a German NGO run the Centre. Guests are welcome to visit it and even to give some of their time if they want to help the youngsters with their school work or to play games with them. Donations of books, stationery, puzzles, games, etc are welcome! You can read more and see photos on Facebook:
