When I went there, unfortunately the Visitor Centre was closed and I couldn't find out why and for how long. With the amazing location perched on a cliff, it would have been an amazing place to spend some hours. There is still a camping site and you can observe the Lepaqoa Waterfall, that freeze in winter

Bokong Nature Reserve sits at more than 3000 meters above sea level. It is the highest nature reserve in Africa, and its visitors centre has been built on the edge of a 100m cliff!
The highlight of this reserve is without a doubt, Lepaqoa Waterfall. I recommend visiting it during the winter months of June to August when it freezes into a giant column of ice.
For adventurous travellers, you can also go on a pony ride in the area.The locally bred Basotho ponies are beautiful and can easily navigate the terrain.
For hikers, there are a network of trails to choose from. If you have time, sign up for the three-day hike along the alpine plateau "Roof of Africa" and down into the Ts’ehlanyane National Park.
Who knows you might even catch a glimpse of the endemic ice rat!
