Health & Climate:

The climate of TNP, like high altitude areas elsewhere in Lesotho, is characterized by extremes of temperature, precipitation and wind speed.

As might be expected from the altitude of the park, temperatures are generally low, even in summer.

Considerable variations occur with changes in altitude and aspect.

North-facing slopes are generally warmer (and have different slope gradients) than south –facing slopes, which are generally cooler.

This is as a result of differences in incoming radiation.

Steep south-facing slopes are especially cold in winter because they receive little direct sun and are often shaded by surrounding mountains.

Maliba River Lodge Guest Review

Average Guest Rating: 
  4.0 out of 5 based on 1 review.

I liked their service, the staff was professional and made sure you got everything you needed. The place is very beautiful and would probably visit again. Even though they are still working on restoring some part of the lodge, that did not have a negative impact on how they dealt with the guests. I had a very good experience, quiet and peaceful.
