Lesotho holidays and Sani Pass tours

Lesotho Holidays

One of the highest countries in the world, Lesotho is surrounded on all sides by South Africa. The landscape is dominated by the imposing Drakensberg Mountains with their soaring peaks, cascading waterfalls and enormous panoramas, earning them their Zulu name of 'Barrier of Spears'.
 
Driving over the Sani Pass from KwaZulu Natal as it twists and snakes into Lesotho is one of Africa’s toughest but most rewarding journeys. There is even a cosy pub located on the border – the world’s highest at 2,874m – where you can enjoy a celebratory drink. On a clear day the view over the Drakensberg from here stretches to the horizon. As the ascent is very steep and narrow, the most popular way of getting a Lesotho stamp in your passport is combing a holiday in South Africa with an organised tour in a 4x4 vehicle from the southern Drakensberg.

The tiny mountain Kingdom of Lesotho is made up mostly of highlands, where many villages can only be reached on horseback or by foot. This remote land of spectacular canyons and thatched huts is the home of the Basotho people and is largely untouched by modern life. The Basotho look striking in their traditional woven hats and colourful wool blankets that they drape around their shoulders.
 
Much more rugged and less developed than its neighbour, Lesotho is the perfect destination for the more adventurous visitor who enjoys travelling by four-wheel drive over rough roads and who is happy to stay in more basic accommodation.
 
Lesotho is a great country to explore on horseback or on foot. Pony trekking on sure-footed Basotho ponies is a lot of fun and one of the best ways to truly experience the beauty of this rural nation and to take in the grandeur of its landscapes.
 
The numerous examples of San Rock Art that are found near the capital of Maseru are some of the best in Africa, and illustrate hunting techniques and Bushmen traditions. At Ha Baroana, there are some incredible paintings of lion, leopard and eland.
 
For those interested in archaeology, the country is home to the largest site of dinosaur footprints, including Leribe where there are three- and five-toed footprints in the bed of the Subeng River.
