Lesotho’s Ts’ehlanyane National Park is a high altitude park nestled deep in the front range of the Maloti mountains, in the Butha-Buthe District. It is one of only two national parks in Lesotho and makes up an integral part of the greater Maloti/Drakensberg Transfrontier Park. It has an altitude ranging from 1940 to 3112 metres and is considered mostly sub-alpine. Its headquarters are at the foot of the Holomo Pass.

The park consists of over 5600 hectares of extremely rugged mountainous terrain and is home to one of the country’s last remaining indigenous woodlands, rare mountain fynbos and berg bamboo that grows on the banks of the streams that pour down from the Maloti Mountains. The name ‘Ts’ehlanyane’ is the local common name for the berg bamboo which is a Drakensberg endemic plant and maybe the most important refuge for this plant in the entire Maloti-Drakensberg mountain range. In summer, autumn and spring it is an ideal area for hiking, riding a horse, enjoying one of the 4X4 routes, relaxing and birdwatching.
