Tour Highlights

Katse dam

Africa’s second largest dam, located at an altitude of 2,000m, was created to effectively use Lesotho’s abundant natural resources. Katse, graciously covered by the ever present lush vegetation coupled with the massive dam, is unlike anything seen in Japan. The massive jets of water gashing through the trapdoors is a sight to behold.

Matsunyane Waterfalls

Along the Orange River, the roaring Matsunyane Waterfalls plunge thunderously from a ledge, dropping 192m into the basin below. The view makes for great ‘panorama’ , adorn with mountains and gracefully flowing streams.

Thaba Bosiu

Thaba Bosiu, loosely translated; ‘mountain at night’ is a sandstone plateau in an area between the Orange and Caledon rivers. It was once the capital of Lesotho, during King Moshoeshoe’s rule. He named it Thaba Bosiu after having led his people there, arriving at night. It is revered since it was at Thaba Bosiu that they fought and defended themselves, thus settling and growing as a people. The Bassotho, people of Lesotho. Kings Moshoeshoe I and II are buried at this World Heritage Site.
