South Africa, Lesotho & Swaziland - Lesotho (PDF Chapter)

This is the Lesotho chapter from Lonely Planet’s South Africa, Lesotho & Swazi-land guidebook.

Lesotho (le-soo-too) is a vastly underrated travel destination. The contrast with South Africa could not be more striking, with the Basotho people’s distinct personality and the terrain’s topo-graphical extremes. Even a few days in Lesotho’s hospitable mountain lodges and trading posts will give you a fresh perspective on Southern Africa.

  • maps
  • pony trek or hike through the highlands, staying in traditional Basotho huts
  • transport
  • raise a glass in Southern Africa’s highest pub, perched atop the Sani Pass in Sani Top
  • restaurants & accommodation
