Lesotho safety  (6 Answers)

Hi,

I was just wondering if anyone has some current safety information regarding Lesotho. I understand the US State department still has a warning (although other countries do not). Is this legitimate? Should I avoid travel to Lesotho in the next month?

Thanks!

Transport in and around Lesotho  (3 Answers)

Hi,

We will be in South Africa for a few weeks and would like to spend a few days in Lesotho.

First, we will not be able to rent a car, so my first question is are we able to do this via public transport/hired drivers?

Next, what is the best way of accessing Lesotho. We are thinking of going after Cape Town, so I was thinking either Durban (seems a little far though), or Bloemfontein (just getting a taxi straight from the airport to Maseru).

Would love to hear thoughts! Thanks!

Driving in Lesotho with a sedan  (4 Answers)

Hi!

Next month I am taking my bellowed mother, which is visiting the continent for the first time, on a trip to Lesotho. I own a 1,4 VW Citi Golf. Have drived in six other countries in Southern Africa, Namibia included (which was no problem), so have some driving experience in the region.

Is there possible for me and my companions to get to some extraordinary places in Lesotho, or is it a waste of time to go with a small sedan to the country?
Hope somebody can share their experiences with me.

Kindest Regards

Thomas Bakken

Transport from Maseru, Lesotho, to Swaziland  (1 Answer)

Hi everyone!

Great to consult 'brian trust' on Virtualtourist.

I am flying off to Jo'burg, visit Lesotho and Swaziland, and then back to Jo'burg in an anti-clockwise motion.

This got me thinking; How can I go from Maseru, Lesotho, to Swaziland? There seems to be no apparent direct transport... Is minibus taxi the only means?

Thanks,

Suggestions for a few days in January  (1 Answer)

Hi
We're toying with the idea of travelling up into Lesotho in early January, entering from the Free State, spending a few days in the mountains pony trekking, hiking and exploring, and then possibly dropping down into KZN via the Sani Pass. We have an old, battered but trusty 4x4.
So some questions for people who've travelled that way recently.
1. How is the road from the border (say we enter through maseru?) over to Sani Top? One fallback option we have consided option if the pass itself isn't doable would be to consider staying overnight at Sani Top and then driving back out through one of the other border posts into the Free State - would this be practical?
2. What is the state of the pass itself? Has the tarring been completed? Is it reasonably navigable? Is it easier to drive it up or down (as we could reverse the itinerary and drive up from KZN if it would make a difference)?
3. Can anyone recommend nice family-friendly accommodation that won't break the bank and will give us a range of activities within easy reach? I think I have heard good things about Malelane Lodge? And what is Sani Top like?
Gerald, I think that the floor is yours, but feedback from anyone else who's recently travelled in these parts would be most welcome ...
Regards
Cathy

Pony Trekking in Lesotho from a Drakensberg base

We are planning to be in the SA's Drakensberg area in September and would love to try out the pony trekking in Lesotho for 1-2 days. We will have a car with us but are not yet sure if we want to rent a 4X4 to do the crossing into Lesotho ourselves, or get on a tour on the SA side that will arrange for the pony trekking. Is the trekking as splendid as it is made out to be? After reading the LP section on it, it sounds like something we would love but I am looking for some personal experiences here on the forum. Any suggestions or recommendations would be highly appreciated. Thanks!

Can anyone give me any tips for travelling out to the East, via the Sani Pass, and then heading out towards Port St Johns in South Africa (on the Wild Coast) will we have to hire a car, or is public transport reliable?
