Welcome to the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. The land of peace and tranquility.
Situated in the heart of South Africa, the independent Kingdom of Lesotho is a country of unparalleled mountain beauty, warm-hearted and friendly people, a rich cultural heritage, and is the land of one of the greatest African diplomats of the 19th century, the great King Moshoeshoe, founder of the Basotho nation.
The Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho is a truly beautiful country, which is the high point (literally!) of any visit to Southern Africa. Roughly the size of Belgium and with the entire country lying above 1500 metres from sea level, Lesotho has the highest lowest point of any country in the world. Visit Lesotho to discover remote and rugged mountains, spectacular natural scenery, deep valleys and gorges, and the culture and hospitality of the Basotho people.
Whoever the traveller, Lesotho is the land of Real People, Real Culture and Real Mountains. Welcome to Lesotho!
