Overview Rates Reviews Enquire

The Trading Post Affectionately called \"Ha Baseane\" by the Basotho after John Thorn, who established Roma Trading Post in 1903 and lived here until his death in 1957. Today the 4th generation of Thorns grow up in this scenic place among the rocky foothills of the Maloti Mountains. Donkeys are still herded daily to the store, bringing gain for grinding. Cattle and pigs and chickens roam freely among the blanket clad horsemen who come to shop at the Trading Post. Little it seems, has changed since \" Baseane\" arrived in 1903 to establish his base shop for pioneering his trade into the blue Maloti\'s.
