Lesotho travel guide
The Kingdom of Lesotho, the only country in the world surrounded entirely by one other country - South Africa, is a rugged land of natural beauty and rich local culture.
Lying at altitudes in excess of 1500m above sea-level, Lesotho is a land of heights… and extremes. Adventure activities such as skiing, pony trekking, hiking, mountain-biking and abseiling are popular and, as no permits are required, this is an exhilarating playground for outdoor enthusiasts.
With spectacular mountain scenery a backdrop to some of the most exciting holiday activities in Africa, Lesotho offers visitors the chance to enjoy the unspoilt beauty of the magnificent Maluti and Drakensberg mountains while getting their adrenaline fix.
For those looking to take things at a more leisurely pace, the country’s birdwatching, boating and fishing are fantastic and there are also interesting visits to San rock art, dinosaur footprints and cultural villages of the Basotho people to be experienced.
