A tiny landlocked country completely surrounded by the larger nation of South Africa, Lesotho's remarkable beauty and heritage far transcend what you might expect from a country its size. A nation reaching for the bright blue sky, Lesotho is nearly all alpine. Mountains are a marvelous fact of life here, which means that visitors should head straight to one of the many Lesotho resorts and mountain lodges to get some excellent views of magical scenery.
Hotels in Lesotho provide a completely unexpected view of Africa that is distinct from any other place on the continent. The capital, Maseru, lies in the west of the country and features some of the best resorts in Lesotho, making it a great starting point for any journey. Not far outside the capital is Thaba Bosiu, a significant stronghold in the mountains where the nation was born. Also in the west lies Morija, a fascinating city with must-see museums and exciting dinosaur footprints, one of Lesotho's main draws. In fact, much of Lesotho's highlands, crisscrossing the country from north to south, are the perfect paleontological destination. For a classic mountain experience, head to the very east of the country to Sehlabathebe National Park, a remote mountain sanctuary with wonderful waterfalls, wildlife, and ancient rock art. Around Lesotho's southernmost city, Quthing, you can find some more fantastic rock art from the San culture. In the north, the regional hub of Hlotse is a great place to get to know locals and shop for souvenirs, as its craft markets are some of the best in the country.
