Tsehlanyane National Park

The scenic Tsehlanyane National Park is one of only two national parks in Lesotho, located deep in the front range of the Maluti Mountains at the foot of the Holomo Pass.

Tsehlanyane National Park has an altitude ranging from 1940 to 3112 metres and is considered mostly sub-alpine. This encourages a rich diversity of habitats, including one of the few remaining indigenous Che-Che woodlands and a proportion of very rare mountain fynbos - all of which make this national park particularly unique.

On the banks of the streams and rivers are stands of berg bamboo, which is of significant cultural significance to the local Basotho people. The African wild cat, black-backed jackal, porcupine, grey rhebuck, rock hyrax, caracal and the clawless otter are amongst the mammalian species recorded in the area. Many of these species are considered to be endangered in the park area.
