13 Instagram Photos of Lesotho the Kingdom in the Sky

While on a trip to South Africa, I made a 4-day stopover in Lesotho. It is the world’s highest country, with its lowest point at 1,400 meters above sea level. For this it has earned its nickname, “Kingdom in the Sky.” Lesotho is the only country in the world to be entirely 1,000 meters above seal level.

The majority of its citizens are farmers, which is why it attracts travelers who enjoy wide open spaces and minimal tourism. Although it is one of the smallest countries in Africa, it boasts splendid scenery and friendly people. Lesotho is a fantastic destination for horseback riding, hiking, and complete relaxation. The country boasts secluded luxury lodges that offer complete tranquility you rarely find. Below are 13 of my favorite Instagram images I captured with my i-Phone during my trip. You can also check out my other travel photos on Davidsbeenhere Instagram.

  1. I am in Lesotho all the time. That is where I live. But my travels to Katse Dam are always like a pilgrimage…

    • thanks Teboho! Yea we didn’t get a chance to see that because of the distance. We also missed the highest bar in Africa. Definitely need another week to be able to drive around and see everything.
