Lesotho in detail


The best accommodation options, and a highlight of travelling in Lesotho, are the various tourist lodges, which offer excellent digs, good food and a range of activities. Family-run guesthouses of varying quality can be found across the country. Top-end accommodation is scarce – exceptions are a few hotels in Maseru and one superb lodge in Ts'ehlanyane National Park. Camping opportunities abound away from major towns but always ask locally for permission.
