The Kome Cave Dwellings were built and protected by Chief Teleka of The Basia(cat) Clan in the early 1800s. The main purpose for the cave dwellings was to serve as a hideout from other Basotho people who resorted to cannibalism during the drought in the late 1700s.
The Kome Cave Dwellings are located in the Berea District about a half an hours drive from Teyateyaneng, the capital of the Berea District, and an hours drive from Maseru, the capital of the Maseru District and Lesotho. The geographical coordinates are S 29º 14' 38.2 E 027º 52' 00.2
