Overview Overview

For this tour we have chosen what we consider to be the main highlights of Lesotho. Some of which include the Sani Pass, historical sites, craft centre, dinosaur footprints, Katse Dam, Basotho culture experience, mountain passes and remote villages.

The Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho offers spectacular mountain scenery, rugged terrain and a rich local culture steeped in tradition. Discover the extreme environment of the Highlands and experience the Lowlands where altitude and climatic changes afford a completely different set of living conditions and lifestyle.

Lesotho is an extraordinary country that will provide you a chance to experience the simplicity of a mountain people. This is an opportunity to explore nature still little changed by man, and unspoiled by crowds of tourists.
