Modern Lesotho traces its origins to the early 1800''s, when King Moshoeshoe I united various tribes who had been displaced through the upheavals associated with the expansion of the Zulu kingdom under King Shaka. Moshoeshoe settled in the mountainous stronghold in present-day Lesotho. He is widely regarded as a seasoned diplomat who wisely managed various conflicts and powerful interests during his lifetime. Under his leadership Basotholand (as it was then called) became a British protectorate. It gained independence in 1966.

Lesotho is a tiny land-locked country and is dominated by the Maluti mountain range, which runs mainly south-west to north-east, culminating in an eastern summit plateau exceeding 3000 meters. Thaba-Ntlenyana, at 3482 meters, and visible from the top of the Sani Pass, is the highest point in Southern Africa. It is also the one of the only independent states in the world to be completely surrounded by another country - in this case South Africa. Much of the economy of Lesotho is dependent on its powerful neighbour - either as a supplier of migrant labour to that country''s mines or through the export of water and electricity.

For its small size Lesotho has some impressive tourist destinations such as the Maletsunyane Falls - a 200 meters high waterfall - or the Sehlabathebe National Park which is a remote and tranquil park in the South-east of the country. Lesotho also boasts the most sites of dinosaur footprints on earth.

Pony trekking is a popular tourist attraction. The Basotho have a strong tradition of horse riding which dates back to colonial times, and experiencing their sturdy Basuto pony''s as they traverse the narrow trails is an exhilarating experience.

Our detailed road map shows all main and minor roads as well as many tracks. It is a great planning tool with GPS co-ordinates of important intersections, places of interest, accommodation information, a street plan of Maseru, travel information and contact details. The Sani Pass is expected to be tarred in the very near future, and would then lose its fame as one of the most challenging passes in Southern Africa. Maybe it''s worth planning a visit to drive the pass before this happens!

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.
