One thing that people from outside Lesotho always notice is the wonderfully colourful blankets that the locals use to keep warm in winter. Bear in mind that because the 80% of the country averages 1800m above sea level, so it gets extremely cold in winter. Winters can be cold with the lowlands getting down to −7 °C (19.4 °F) and the highlands to −18 °C (−0 °F) at times. Snow is common in the highlands between May and September; the higher peaks can experience snowfalls year-round.

So they all have colourful blankets they wear all the time in the cold months. The lodge also happens to have a road that comes in from the surrounding villages which goes right through the middle of the resort, so many of the locals pass through the lodge on their way across the bridge into the Semonkong village on the other side of the river.
