Welcome to The Kingdom in the Sky. This is southern Africa – but not as you know it
Tours in Lesotho
Known as ‘The Kingdom in the Sky’, Lesotho is a little-visited nation with the distinction of being the only country in the world that is entirely 1000m above sea level or more. Its rolling highlands and rugged mountains are visible from just about anywhere in the land. This tiny mountainous kingdom is completely surrounded by its much larger neighbour, South Africa. Large mountain ranges form a distinct border, which gave the Basotho people a strategic advantage in defending their land.
Today, Lesotho has a population of just over two million, and its inhabitants rate themselves as some of the world’s most hospitable people. For Earth Wanderer travellers, Lesotho holidays offer an adventure with a difference, in a destination like no other.
