One of the things that made an impression on me while visiting Lesotho is the breathtaking scenery. With magnificent golden mountain ranges, interspersed with deep valleys, it is most certainly a landscape that will captivate you. I’ve had the opportunity to visit Lesotho various times while travelling in South Africa, during different seasons, and every time the beautiful scenery mesmerises me. I’ve had cold weather, rain, hail, snow, wind, thunderstorms as well as nice sunny days. And I can tell you, no matter what temperature, no matter what weather, it’s still spectacular. It’s also a country with amazing people who are very friendly, very welcoming and very interested in the people visiting their beautiful homeland. The Basotho people come out and wave when you pass by, especially the children. I’m glad I had the chance to visit the country multiple times, to drive over challenging roads, meet interesting people, experienced horse riding, saw some great Bushman rock art and observed some great sunsets over the mountains.
