The Snow+Rock Enduro, a bucket list riding experience, is set to take place in the mountains of Lesotho at Afriski Mountain Resort from 25-27 October 2019.

In partnership with Wild West, Raceworx KTM and West Husquavarna, 2 days of riding will feature lowland and high-altitude routes over remote sections of the Maluti Mountains. Novice to advanced enduro riders are catered for on a selection of self-navigated or guided routes lead by experienced Afriski guides with their knowledge of the local routes through valleys, rivers and rugged terrain.


“Snow+Rock Enduro is a perfect getaway to explore the incredible riding terrain and scenery Lesotho has to offer. A great adventure without the competitive pressure of sanctioned races” Hein Kock

This is an event for the whole family, with other adventure activities included. Mountain biking, monster rolling, paintball games and guided hikes will be on offer for all members of your family. Hearty meals, hot chocolate or Maluti beers will also be on offer at Africa’s highest restaurant – Sky Restaurant.

Afriski Mountain Resort offers a range of accommodation and catering options from backpackers to mountain chalets. View our accommodation options here.

The Lowland ride start is situated just over the Calendonspoort border (approximately 350km from Johannesburg). It is possible to leave home and drive directly to the Snow+Rock Enduro start on Friday morning. If you’d rather break up the trip, you can stay over in Fouriesberg, Clarens or Afriski on Thursday evening and have a more relaxed start to the day. 

There are a number of B&Bs close to the border and in Lesotho itself. We recommend the below guest houses and bookings can be done through our central reservations or directly.
