5 must-see places

Go! Camp & Drive - - Destination -

With all its back roads, Le­sotho can be vis­ited again and again and ev­ery time you’ll dis­cover new places. But be­fore you do that, check out th­ese five ex­cep­tional places.

1 MATEBENG PASS

This pass might not be as fa­mous as Sani, but it’s equally spec­tac­u­lar. Here are no taxis, and be­cause it’s not well main­tained, it’s es­sen­tially a 4x4 track. GPS S29.875253° E28.966253°

2 SEHLA­BATEBE NA­TIONAL PARK

This lesser known park in the south-eastern cor­ner of Le­sotho is an un­touched piece of Earth with in­cred­i­ble rock for­ma­tions, wide open plains, and beau­ti­ful views. GPS S29.870045° E29.067555°

3 MALET­SUN­YANE WA­TER­FALL

This wa­ter­fall just out­side Se­monkong is fea­tured on al­most all web­sites or tour guides on Le­sotho. But no photo can do jus­tice to the beauty of this nat­u­ral bea­con. GPS S29.868664° E28.051748°

4 KATSE DAM

The Katse Dam isn’t just an im­pres­sive piece of en­gi­neer­ing, but it’s also an es­sen­tial wa­ter source for South Africa. The dam wall is the sec­ond big­gest of its kind in Africa – you can do a tour of the in­side. GPS S29.336966° E28.506169°

5 AFRISKI

You might have skied be­fore, but have you ever skied in Africa? Here’s your chance. There are also a wide va­ri­ety of other ac­tiv­i­ties, like bum­board­ing, where you slide down a slope on a spade. GPS S28.823098° E28.728121°
