I stumbled on the filming location...
It was in December of 1974 during a fuel shortage or embargo. We were driving down the Sani Pass on vapors in a VW micro bus from Lesotho into South Africa. From my memory, they didn't film in Lesotho but in the Drakenstein Mountains in South Africa. We hung out with the crew for a bit, played with the dog and its double and then bought some petrol from them and continued to the Natal Coast. We did go see the movie when it came out in Cape Town and later I saw it on TV in the States. Very different endings. It is a good little moral tale playing to decent sentiments in a country that was beginning to come to terms with the reality of apartheid only to come unstuck in 1976. The American version wasn't as effective.
