Liphofung Cave (S 28 45.251 E 028 29.700, 2246-0723 or 2246-0813,, 8am-5pm, adult M15, child M5) is a long sandstone overhang that has been used as a shelter for hundreds of years. The walls of the overhang are decorated with old San rock art, and it is said that King Moshoeshoe I stayed here when he traveled through northern Lesotho. Local guides are on hand to explain the significance of some of the rock art on the cave walls.

There is a Cultural Centre (8am-5pm Mon-Fri) located next to the caves with a small gift shop and displays on San rock art, artifacts and Basotho culture.


There are two self-catering four-bed rondavels located beside the caves. There are also more recently built and more upscale chalets that sleep up to six people in addition to camping.
