General Information

Butha-Buthe is the capital town of the Butha-Buthe region of Lesotho. The town received its name from one of the most significant local sites for the Basotho, the Butha-Buthe Plateau. The name of the plateau and therefore also the town, means “The Place of Lying Down”.It is also the starting point for the Roof of Africa Route past Oxbow to Mokhotlong, a road that was recently under reconstruction. There are also mysterious caves used by the San (Bushmen) in the area near Qalo and Sekubu, and some more dinosaur footprints.

This plateau is considered to be a part of their cultural heritage as it was the site of Moshoeshoe I’s original mountain fortress. In 1824 this fortress moved to the town of Thaba-Bosiu. The town of Butha-Buthe has a total population of approximately 10 000 residents.
