Mosamane Guest Farm

Rosendal, Free State

Mosamane is an eco-friendly, self-catering lodge at the foothills of the Maluti Mountains in the Eastern Freestate.  Here you can experience adventure on the Hiking or Mountain biking trail.

With the Lodge being an eco-friendly lodge, all the geysers are gas and solar and electricity is generated by solar power.  The old barn was renovated and converted into a lovely 5 bedroom Lodge (all en-suite) which can accommodate up to 17 people. All the bedrooms as well as the communal lounge area have fireplaces and hair dryers.

The backpackers can accommodate up to 7 guests.  The backpacker’s room have a lovely under-cover deck overlooking the farm and the mountain, with the bathrooms (6 showers and 6 toilets) downstairs.

2 Enclosed braai areas and 1 Boma adds to the uniqueness of this Lodge.

The 3 kitchens are all equipped with microwave ovens, gas stoves and fridges.

Meals:

Although this is a self-catering Lodge, simple meals like bobotie, chicken pie, lasagne or Kudu potjie, all with veggies or salad and rice can be ordered.

Hiking:

Try our fairly challenging but beautiful 9km hiking trail as well as an easier 5km trail.  Starting out at the Lodge, you will hike along the stream, through grasslands and dongas. The 9km trail goes into the dongas and up the mountain and has surprises around each bend with the rock cliffs and rock formations. Climb to the rock overhangs and admire the amazing views.

There are ladders and chains to help you negotiate the steep mountain section of the hike, which passes ancient caves called “Owls eyes” (so called after their appearance), “Cathedral”, several natural showers and a Fairy garden on route to the lookout of the “Old-Old people”.

Mountain Biking:

If you enjoy mountain biking you can try out the tough but scenic 16km route which takes you to a different part of the farm. Should you prefer to make it a longer ride, you can add the farm road or part of the hiking route to your biking route.  This will add an additional 5-6km to your route.  The mountain bike route takes you up and over the mountain and into the valley where you will pass some cattle, bless-buck and other small game.

Horse Rides:

There are 6 well-trained horses on the farm.  Horse rides can be arranged at R100p hour.

Relaxing:

If none of the above appeal to you, simply sit under a tree or on the veranda of the Lodge and soak in the landscapes which is home to a great variety of creatures, including the Secretary bird, Bald Iris and the Mosamane ground squirrel.
