Lesotho “The Kingdom in the Sky” certainly lives up to its name. Trekking enthusiasts will enjoy the rugged, mountainous scenery as we travel through the Thaba-Putsoa and awesome Drakensbergs, culminating in the spectacular 1000m descent into South Africa from Sani Pass.
Staying with the Basotho tribe in their hidden villages will be a memorable part of this Lesotho trekking holiday. After treading tough terrain all day, it will be rewarding to spend time with these people and reflect back on the journey in simple, but hospitable accommodation and beautiful, tranquil surroundings. The isolation makes for a truly unique experience.
There is also an opportunity to extend your tour with a trip to South Africa’s Garden Route. This will include a visit to Cape Town and hiking up Table Mountain, spending time in Cape Peninsula National Park at Hout Bay and the Cape of Good opeHope, Hope, supping the finest wines in Stellenbosch as well as staying in Outdshoorn ostrich country and in Swellendam the third oldest white settlement in South Africa. There will also be time to explore Tsitsikamma National Park and perhaps take in a thrilling canopy ride.
