In this episode I take you to the the Sky Kingdom of Lesotho, the highest country in Africa. This country has the highest low point on earth. Here is our travel guide to Lesotho.
The entire country is 1000 meters above sea level. It’s located about 7 hours drive south of Johannesburg and 5 hours west of Durban. For the next 72 hours I am going to be showing you what to see and do in Lesotho!
This is Semonkong the horse capital of Lesotho. It’s located in the central part of the country. Right now we are going to walk around the market and buy a typical beanie follow me. Follow me lets go shopping!
After a bit of a negotiating I got three for 100 Rand. The beanies are made out of wool and it’s the most traditional thing you can buy.
Welcome to Semonkong Lodge! If you’re looking to explore central Lesotho this is the place to stay. They have a restaurant, 25 rooms and they are very close to Maletsunyane Fall’s the highest single drop waterfall in the southern hemisphere. You can go pony trekking and explore Semonkong.
Next up we head to Maliba Lodge on the northern side of Lesotho. They have 6 chalets and 4 river chalets. A few different activities you can do in the area are horseback riding, village tour and a massage. They have heated floors, beds and wife.
We head out on horseback for a two hour trek in the mountains of Tsehlanyane National Park. After an incredible trek we head to the near by village of Hamadi to experience local life. At the local bar I tried some Lesotho beer which was bitter but traditional.
