Lesotho offers natural beauty, rugged terrain, and rich local culture and traditions, and a scarcity of civilization’s trappings, such as landlords and fences, provides a permit-free playground for the more intrepid adventurers. Accommodation can be found in all the regions of Lesotho, some calmly situated on river banks, some on mountain sides, and some at the highest altitude in Southern Africa. A visitor to Lesotho can choose to stay in a bed and breakfast or hotel in a town or the capital, Maseru, or choose to be spoiled by nature and find chalet or self-catering accommodation deep in the highlands of Lesotho, totally surrounded by beautiful mountains and a peaceful environment.
With all its land lying at altitudes in excess of 1500m above sea-level; Lesotho is a land of heights and extremes. Lesotho offers breathtaking mountain vistas and adventure activities such as skiing, pony trekking, hiking and abseiling for the intrepid traveller. More leisurely pursuits for those seeking a relaxing and revitalising break include birdwatching, boating and fishing.
Lesotho’s history can be explored at leisure with visits to San rock art, dinosaur footprints and cultural villages where the rich local culture of the Basotho people can be experienced.
Lesotho is a democratic, sovereign and independent country which has the unusual distinction of being completely surrounded by another country. Lesotho’s strength as an investment destination lies in her investment security, incentives, scenic beauty and rich cultural traditions.
Lesotho is situated centrally within Southern Africa and with good access to some of the fastest growing industrial and economic areas in the region such as Johannesburg, Pretoria and Bloemfontein in neighbouring South Africa. This, combined with the efforts of the Government of Lesotho to create a good enabling environment for business, make the country an attractive destination for foreign investment.
