Reasons To Visit Lesotho

Lesotho is a landlocked nation encompassed by South Africa known for its high elevation and natural beauty, making it a fascinating destination for adventurous travelers. There are a wide range of outdoor opportunities to enjoy in the country whether it’s hiking and trekking through the mountainous terrain or visiting some of the memorable landmarks like the Katse Dam and the breathtaking Semonkong Falls. In the capital Maseru there are many things to do for people of all ages – be sure to see the unique Basotho Hat building or enjoy some authentic local cuisine.

Arriving In Lesotho

The main international airport in Lesotho is Moshoeshoe I International Airport which is located around 20 km from the capital Maseru. Currently the only regular flights handled at the airport from Johannesburg, so if you are looking to book flights from the UAE to Lesotho you will not be able to make the journey directly. However, Johannesburg O. R. Tambo Airport handles direct flights from both Dubai and Abu Dhabi, so travelers based in the UAE can conveniently transfer at the airport to reach Lesotho.

When you have arrived at Moshoeshoe I International Airport, the most convenient way to travel into the city is to arrange a taxi trip. Be advised that taxis are not always waiting at the airport, so you should prearrange one to pick you up. The airport itself offers very little in terms of amenities and services, so bring any must-have items with you in order to avoid disappointment.
