The Kingdom of Lesotho is an enclaved country surrounded entirely by South Africa. 2 million people call this 30 355 km2 home. They speak Sesotho and English and the capital city is called Maseru. Lesotho is a kingdom high in the sky. The entire country is higher than 1000m above sea level! Snowy mountain tops in the cold winters and the summer thunderstorms in the warm summer, make this is a most special travel destination.
A bird enthusiast’s paradise, there are known to be 339 bird species in Lesotho, including 10 globally threatened species. And of course, Lesotho is where the Basotho pony finds its origins. The Basotho pony is a fearless and fast horse, still used to trek through the mountains.
Lesotho is a fascinating country, with many of her people still living in traditional houses and traditional dress, the Basotho Blanket, worn by men and women. Some of the most fantastic homestays can be found here, with friendly and kind families welcoming you into their homes. Lesotho is the best destination for multiple day hikes, pony treks and adventure.
Do I need a visa for the destination I am travelling to?
Many nationalities will get a Tourist Visa upon arrival for either 14 or 90 days, depending on which country you are from. Please contact us for further questions.
Do I require vaccinations for my holiday?
Before you can get to Lesotho, you have had to arrive in South Africa first, as Lesotho does not have an international airport. Therefore, the same rules will apply as they do for South Africa. Please always consult with your doctor for medical advice.
Do I need travel insurance?
Yes, a travel insurance is obligatory. We strongly advise that you also take out a cancellation policy.
