A Land of Mountains
Lesotho (le-soo-too) is called Southern Africa's ‘kingdom in the sky’ for a good reason. This stunningly beautiful, mountainous country is a landlocked country in southern Africa, entirely surrounded by South Africa and it is a fascinating travel detour from its larger neighbour.

The country is just over 30,000 kilometers squared in size, and has a population of approximately 2,067,000. Its capital and largest city is Maseru.

The ‘lowland’ areas (all of which are still above 1000m) offer some craft shopping and dinosaur footsteps, while the highlands in the northeast and centre feature towering peaks (over 3000m) and verdant valleys which offers superb mountain scenery, proud traditional people, endless hiking trails, and the chance to explore remote areas on Basotho ponies.
