Lesotho Travel guide

Lesotho, officially known as the Kingdom of Lesotho is an enclaved country which means that the state is surrounded by the territory of more than one different countries within the border of South Africa. Lesotho is culturally very distinct as compared to their neighbouring states. Read more

  • Though modernization is taking a turn over here still you could find most of the people living their lives with tradition and in simple stone and thatch huts. Because Lesotho is on higher altitude, they have very stunning mountainous scenery. You can trek, ride on the mountain by horse/ bike. The Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho offers a best of natural beauty, rocky landscape, an amusing local culture and traditions, a scarcity of civilization's accoutrements, such as property-owners and barriers, also it provides a permit-free play area for the more valiant explorers. Best time to visit Lesotho is between August to October that is in spring. The accommodation can vary from options like good hotels, resorts but to experience a good stay with the focus more on the Basotho’s lifestyle in Lesotho we would recommend staying in camps and rural homestay.
  • Note: Lesotho is malaria free.

    What to see in Lesotho?

  • Malealea, regarded as one of the top destinations in Lesotho, is a perfect one-stop destination for a relaxing and adventurous holiday. A local band, using their homemade instruments, entertains guests in the evenings.

  • Rock climbing: Lesotho has the maximum peak abseiling cliff in the whole world at Maletsunyane falls. This is also been recorded in the Guinness Book of Records as the highest Commercial abseil in the World. It is at the peak of 206 meters.
  • Hiking: The Giant's Cup track from the Hotel Sani Pass to Bushman's Nek is really beautiful. This path provides mesmerizing scenic landscapes of marvellous peaks. The impressive peaks of Thabana Ntlenyana must be on the list as it is the highest peak point of Southern Africa.
  • Horse riding/Pony trekking: Rides can vary from 1 hour to 6 days trekking on horse or pony to the mountain cliffs and also you could stay in the high altitude Basotho villages setting up a camp
  • Mountain biking: A tour on two wheels with an adventurous route on mountains will be so fascinating and overwhelming. The impressive peaks en route or Thabana Ntlenyana, Southern Africa's highest point.
