What makes the visit of Lesotho so special is the kindness of people- I dare you to count the number of "Lumela" (pronounced Dumela and meaning hello) within 1 day!; and you top that welcome with spectacular landscapes and many activities in Lesotho, and you pretty much want to stay for at least a week.
The unfenced and unspoilt landscapes of mountains famously known for having a blue tone, skies, water, and rock art on sandstone made by Bushmen (San) attract artists and photographers.
Lesotho is high and amongst its mountains there are many waterfalls, rivers, climbs, and paths which are here to pleased holiday makers who are into fishing, hiking, pony-trekking, abseiling the world's longest commercial single drop along side the Maletsunyane, swimming, exhilarating whitewater courses, canoeing, off-road racing... Lesotho welcomes every year the annual world-famous Roof of Africa Rally.
No need to have a 4x4 to drive around Lesotho but then you won't be able to go everywhere. I have done it with a sedan car (Ford Fiesta) and we have travelled Lesotho from North to South West. We even managed to go to the Kome caves- thanks to my husband who knows how to ride a Ford Fiesta as a 4x4! It was worth it as Kome Caves dwellings built in the 19th century, are still lived in by original families. An unique experience to get a taste of old style living.
Amongst activities in Lesotho, one can explore all beautiful reserves of this country: Ts'ehlanyane National park, Bokong Nature reserve, Liphofund Nature Reserve, Maluti Drakensberg Transfrontier Project, Sehlabathebe National park.
One shoud not forget the superb dams to visit: Katse Dam or Mohale Dam.
