The Kingdom of Lesotho is a landlocked, high-altitude country encircled by South Africa. It has the highest lowest point of any country in the world, and its high altitude means it is the ideal place for a skiing holiday in Africa - typically between June and August. Snow has fallen in the country in every month of the year, albeit not in the same year!
The most famous part of Lesotho is the Sani Pass, that is a mountain pass on the road between Underberg, South Africa and Mokhotlong, Lesotho. The pass was built in the 1950's and remains a challenging drive even in a 4x4 vehicle as it is a windy and dramatic route with a summit altitude of 2876m. The ever changing weather just adds to the excitement. At the top of the pass you can enjoy a drink in the highest pub in Africa at the Sani Mountain Lodge - albeit this is just on the South African side of the border!
