The Maletsunyane Falls is the highest waterfall in Southern Africa, falling 196 metres in a single drop. Its nearly twice as high as Victoria Falls, though a fraction of the width. The village of Semonkong is nestled on the banks of the Maletsunyane river, upstream from the Maletsunyane Falls. It is called ‘The Place of Smoke’ after the characteristic haze created by the waterfall plummeting into the gorge.
The national flower of Lesotho, the spiral aloe or Aloe Polyphylla, is restricted to steep basaltic mountain slopes. There are large areas of these pretty plants found around Semonkong.
Semonkong Lodge operate the world’s highest abseil down into the gorge alongside the falls. This record has been accredited by Guinness World Records.
