Lesotho (pronounced li-soo-too) is a landlocked country entirely surrounded by South Africa and roughly the size of Belgium.
Lesotho is also known as the Kingdom in the Sky as the entire country lies 1000 m above sea level and includes the highest peak in Africa south of Kilimanjaro.
The twin spines of the Drakensberg and Maluti Mountains dominate Lesotho’s landscape, making a visit to Lesotho ideal as part of an active and cultural holiday.
Lesotho offers an opportunity to experience Africa's natural beauty and the simplicity and warmth of the friendly Basotho people who have their own rich culture. Lesotho is a wonderful destination and easily incorporated into a self-drive South Africa holiday.
