Lesotho Times - - Entertainment - Mo­halenyane Phakela

MAFETENG-BASED Riba­neng Lodge and Cul­tural Vil­lage will host a two­day out­door ad­ven­ture event start­ing on Satur­day.

Dubbed Week­end of Ad­ven­ture, the event will in­clude such ac­tiv­i­ties as camp­ing, quad bik­ing, bird watch­ing, night runs as well as cave, wa­ter­fall and pony trekking among oth­ers. It will also in­clude per­for­mances by lo­cal artists and DJS.

Ac­cord­ing to the lodge’s events or­gan­iser, Katleho “Kiddy” Ramoko, the aim of the event was to help par­tic­i­pants “get in touch with na­ture” away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of daily life as well as to pro­mote do­mes­tic tourism.

“Get­ting in touch with na­ture helps re­fresh the mind dur­ing the long week­end and of­fers a wel­come respite from daily rou­tines,” she said.

“Most en­ter­tain­ment events in Le­sotho are mu­sic ori­ented, yet there are many ways that we can en­joy our­selves while also dis­cov­er­ing the tourism at­trac­tions the coun­try has to of­fer.”

Ramoko added: “The out­doors are the per­fect place to med­i­tate and break away from the stress and de­pres­sion of ev­ery­day life.

“We in­vite peo­ple to join us in the quest to find our in­ner selves and con­quer the fear of heights as well as ex­plor­ing na­ture, which will all be done through ex­treme sports.”

She said the event would start off with a mu­sic show to pre­pare par­tic­i­pants for the lined-up ac­tiv­i­ties.

“On Satur­day, we will kick start with mu­si­cal per­for­mances to al­low the par­tic­i­pants to set­tle in and get ready for the day of ad­ven­ture that will fol­low,” said Ramoko.

“We are hop­ing to host such events on a monthly ba­sis with dif­fer­ent themes meant to pro­mote the tourism sec­tor.”

THE two-day out­door ad­ven­ture event will in­clude pony trekking among oth­ers ac­tiv­i­ties.
