Dinosaur trails

The existence of life in Lesotho dates back 200 million years. The evidence lies in the fossilised dinosaur footprints that have been uncovered throughout Lesotho.

Several dinosaur footprint track ways are preserved in their original position and are open to the public. Stephen Spielberg, eat your heart out!

The most important sites are near Qalo near Butha-Buthe, Morija, Masitise, Subeng Stream and Tsikoane at Hlotse, Matsieng, Maphutseng near Mohale's Hoek, and Moyeni.

Fossil excavation is strictly prohibited in Lesotho, as the remains of dinosaurs and other reptiles, as well as some of the earliest mammals, are a resource of world importance. However, the Morija Museum houses many excellent specimens together with explanatory information.
