Driving through Lesotho from Qacha's Nek to Maseru we saw the most beautiful scenery and passed some of the friendliest people. Just driving by brought a wave and smile from people of all ages and sex.

Driving through the passes to afriski was an unexpected treat. Unspoilt passes, clear skies, amazing road through some of the highest points in Southern Africa, beautiful frozen waterfalls.

The road trip through the Maluku mountains, although hair-raising with some of the twists and turns, is 100% pure amazing. Take note of the road condition with many potholes however the road works are making repairs which also causes one way travel in certain spots....More

As another reviewer said, Tough but beautiful. The winding roads (some tarred, some gravel) slows down the trip and the driver is not always available to take in the beautiful view. It is up to the passengers to take photos.

Great views of mountains and waterfall. I would however suggest for visitors to use a 4x4 or local guide to drive as roads are tricky and there large sections of uneven gravel roads.

For anyone who loves mountains, a weekend trip to Katse Dam, Afriski, or Semonkong is worth the views. Although not the same type of sheer rock faces as the Rockies or the Alps, some of Lesotho's finest scenery is worth a weekend drive. If renting...More
