The Buffalo Hotel is 5 hrs away from Sani Top and 2 hours away from the Katse Dam Wall. If you are coming from Underberg and Sehlabathebe it makes more sense to sleep over at the Buffalo Hotel to shorten your journey. The Hotel is equipped with a comfortable Bar and Restaurant. Even if you don't overnight it is worth stopping in for lunch or some fresh filter coffee after a couple of hours behind the wheel. There is not much in terms of activities but a good place to rest and to make use of the good meals on offer. There are ensuite rondavels with single beds and other square shapped ensuite doubles and twins. If you enroute to Katse Dam you can still make it in time for the Dam wall tour which starts at 9am as well as 2pm. The hotel is on the outskirts of Thaba Tseka with a decent view and escapes the bustling settlement of Thaba Tseka.


The Buffalo Hotel is situated in the central highlands of Lesotho, on the outskirts of Thaba Tseka on the Sani Pass Side. Drive through the town of Thaba Tseka towards Sani Pass and about 10km you will see the Buffalo Hotel on your left hand side. If you are coming from Sani or Sehlabathebe it will be about 10km before Thaba Tseka on your right hand side - it is well signposted.
