Package Itinerary

Lesotho Overland 2 Nights / 3 Days

Day 1: All Meals-Own Cost!

Depart Maseru or the airport after breakfast, we start with our tour by going to TY the capital city of Berea where we will hop for crafts and then proceed to Ha Kome caves dwellings in the Berea district. They have been declared a national heritage and original families are still dwelling in them.

The journey will then continue to Thaba-Bosiu; this is where the Basotho nation was born. The name Thaba-Bosiu means the 'Mountain at Night'. This is where you will get a cultural and heritage experience and get a clear insight into how King Moshoeshoe 1 and his people moved from Mekhoaneng to Thaba-Bosiu and why they decided to settle there.

After lunch, we jump into our car and heads towards Roma, the home of the National University of Lesotho where we will stop for a view of the university, bird watching, and a series of photographs. Without wasting much time in this small city, we pass on and travel through the rugged roads of Lesotho while taking scenery photos along the way as we head to Semonkong, known as “A place of Smoke”.
