  • Not really cave or caves. Lavatories not present presents challenge. Approximately an hour spent here  more »
  • I did some research before going there and found out that they were not really caves, so I was prepared. I think they should just amend the name so people are not disappointed, its King Moshoeshoe's.....  more »
  • I stopped here on the way back from Afriski. It was 50 rand entrance and 50 rand for the tour guide. There are some cave paintings, and a small museum. The guide was excellent.  more »
  • Liphofung caves is a must visit with history that takes you back in time and a look at traditional living. A curio shop with local handmade products and memerobilia. Lesotho's national flower, the Spiral Aloe, is also to be seen here
  • Beautiful place. Great lesson by the guide. Even if you're not staying overnight, I would recommend paying this place a short visit.
  • Good to learn the history of a country. Well guided tours.
  • Very insightful tour of the caves. Very beautiful scenery. Definitely a must for people in the area
  • A really great experience to see the original Khoisan rock paintings, but the venue seems run down and not very well maintained. Also the cost to go to the cave is quite expensive. At R50 pp and still a mandatory R50 for a guide. So paid R250 for 4 adults.
