  • Lesotho

 

Lesotho: a mountainous region of absolute beauty and grandeur that is inhabited by humble tribes and loyal ponies. Prominent peaks with snowy tops, fresh mountain air and lush greenery form part of the natural backdrop to the region that is referred to as the “Kingdom in the Sky”, 1000m above sea-level.

Getting to Lesotho

This magical country is located a short distance away from Bloemfontein in the Free State. It is easily reached via air from Johannesburg, with flights arriving direct to Maseru daily. Coaches and taxis are also regularly driving in and out of Maseru, making this land-locked country completely accessible, but not overrun with tourists. Once there, there are a host of activities to partake in and 2 exquisite Sun International hotels to choose from in terms of accommodation

Accommodation in Maseru

Maseru is also home to 2 of our most prestigious hotels: Lesotho Sun Hotel & Casino and Maseru Sun , each one as magnificent as the next, reflecting the natural attractiveness of the area, while also paying attention to simple luxuries. From either of these hotels, guests can step out into a world of charm, African craftsmanship and rich, cultural history.

What to do in Lesotho

In a country so full of diverse, natural beauty, there are plenty of outdoor activities to partake in that allow visitors to best absorb the atmosphere. Pony trekking in the Maluti Mountains is a firm favourite with all travellers to Lesotho. Coming into such close contact with the mountains and valleys offers the perfect opportunity to explore the diverse fauna and flora, while breathing the fresh mountain air. Treks can be anything from 1 hour long to 6 days… depending on fitness levels and capabilities. Hiking is also highly recommended for those who prefer to exercise their lungs and get their feet a little bit dirty.

Craft markets are in huge abundance in Lesotho and there are plenty of gorgeous keepsakes that can be bought, handcrafted by the locals with the greatest of care. A particularly interesting day out would take guests to Thorkild Hand Weaving or Moteng Weavers. These local weaving centres offer visitors the opportunity to see the locals at work, creating masterpieces in high-quality woven goods.

Sani Pass is one of the most popular visiting points for those venturing through Lesotho. Here you can have a drink at the highest bar in the whole of South Africa. This mountain pass extends from the top of the Drakensberg escarpment, all the way down to KwaZulu Natal below. The highest peak in South Africa, Thabana-Ntlenyana is situated in the nearby mountains and stands at a proud 3,482m high.

Other sites of great interest include:

  • The Morija Museum, a fascinating journey into the history of the Lesotho culture.
  • Lancer’s Gap is a beautiful vantage point that offers views across Maseru. It was the site of a prominent battle that took place in 1852 during Moshoeshoe’s son’s reign over the Basotho people.
  • The famous dwellings and villages of King Moshoeshoe can be visited at ThabaBosiu.
  • Dinosaur fossils dating back 200 million years can be seen in places like: Qalo in Butha-Buthe, Morija, Masitise, Subeng Stream and Tsikoane in Leribe.

There are many more interesting, spectacular and awe-inspiring venues to visit within Lesotho, and information thereto can be obtained from your service desk at either The Lesotho Sun Hotel & Casino or The Maseru Sun. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
