The Kingdom of Lesotho is a landlocked country surrounded entirely by South Africa and covers about 33 000 square km. 

Formerly known as Basutoland, Lesotho translates to “the land of the people who speak Sotho”. Lying 1000m above sea level and featuring one of the highest peak in Africa – Thabana Ntlenyana, rising 3 500 m into the sky, Lesotho is also referred to as the ‘Kingdom in the sky’.

Lesotho, a high-altitude, landlocked kingdom encircled by South Africa, is crisscrossed by a network of rivers and mountain ranges including the 3,500m-high peaks of Thabana Ntlenyana. On the Thaba Bosiu plateau, near Lesotho's capital, Maseru, are ruins dating from the 19th-century reign of King Moshoeshoe. Thaba Bosiu overlooks iconic Mt. Qiloane, an enduring symbol of the nation’s Basotho people. In addition to this peak, the twin spines of the Drakensberg and Maluti Moiuntain highlands occupy a large portion of the country. 

With a long and rich history, Lesotho has much to offer in traditional, historical and social respects in addition to its scenery. Offering an opportunity to experience Africa’s natural beauty and traditions, the simplicity of Lesotho along with the friendly local Basotho people will satisfy every soul that visits this destination. The capital city of Maseru, also the largest, presents an African experience of its own compared to the isolated villages that surround it. 

 Accommodation in Lesotho delivers on expectations of international standards with a selection of luxurious and top-class guesthouses, self-catering accommodation and hotels as well as standard bed and breakfasts and safari lodges all of which offer affordable prices. Lesotho accommodation presents itself with hospitable African culture and tradition – you will not be disappointed.
