Flag of Lesotho

Lesotho, also called the mountain Kingdom of Africa. You will meet the friendliest people and can experience the real Africa. We suggest you’re a bit adventurous when you choose to go to Lesotho. It’s beautiful but roads are not always good, 4×4 is needed for the backroads. We can also ensure that you will have memories to cherish for the rest of your life.
