the Kingdom in the Sky.
High in the mountains of Southern Africa, completely landlocked by South Africa, is the Kingdom of Lesotho An extraordinary country that provides spectacular mountain scenery as a backdrop to some of the most exciting holiday activities in Africa, Lesotho offers the chance to enjoy Africa’s majestic beauty, the simplicity of a mountain people, and a serene quality of life for discerning travellers from all over the world.
A magnificent opportunity to explore nature still little changed by people, still unspoilt by crowds of tourists, and to appreciate the beautiful landscapes of the soaring Maluti and Drakensberg mountains.
The invigorating mountain air, spectacular panoramas of rocky crags, deep valleys and fields of alpine flowers, and the warm welcome of the Basotho people, set Lesotho apart as a special holiday destination.
To explore Lesotho is so easy. Excellent new roads wind up into the mountains, while 4x4 treks are an exciting way to explore the more out-of-the-way sites. But for most people the ideal way is on the back of the gentle, but sure-footed, Basotho pony — our traditional transport in the mountains.
Lesotho is Africa, but a different Africa, a special Africa, for Lesotho offers an appeal and an adventure that is rarely found in more commercialised destinations.
