Think Lesotho and what do you see? Blankets, ponies and Basotho hats? So do most people. But for me, it’s also about steep snaking Lesotho passes that take your breath away. You can’t avoid them – and you wouldn’t want to. Here are 3 Lesotho passes you have to drive, including Sani Pass.
Anyone can tell you that apart from the capital, Maseru, Lesotho is a bit off the beaten track. So too are some of the Lesotho destinations. But don't miss seeing the Kome Caves near the little village of Mateka.
Don’t get me wrong. I love Lesotho and I love its friendly people, I love its climate and its stunning peaks and valleys. I love everything about it except for the disappointment of unfulfilled potential.
You can’t go far in Lesotho without seeing people wrapped in colourful Basotho blankets, or blankets spread out on rocks and bushes to dry after rain. So when someone offers you a peek into their secret language, you don’t refuse.
