    The Thaba Bosiu Cultural Village is located at the foot of the Thaba Bosiu plateau and is set along the Rafutho axis which is the main path up the mountain.

    For any tourist to Lesotho, the Thaba Bosiu Cultural Village is a “must see” destination for a contemporary, yet uniquely Lesotho experience.

     

    Located 24km outside of the city of Maseru, Thaba Bosiu is a National Monument and Lesotho’s foremost tourist destination holding great historical significance as the birthplace of the Basotho People.

     

    It is a sandstone plateau where King Moshoeshoe I, the founder of the Basotho Nation established what turned out to be a formidable fortress that protected his People during amongst others, the Lifaqane (Mfecane) war. “Thaba Bosiu” which means “Mountain at Night” was believed to possess supernatural powers which made it grow into a tall mountain during the night leaving enemies who tried scaling it still stranded on its cliffs and vulnerable for attack the next morning.
