Do something hilarious in Lesotho

Pony-Trekking at either Malealea, in Katse, or at the Basotho Pony-Trekking Center — whether your a seasoned pro at horse riding or a complete novice, pony-trekking is an extremely enjoyable way to see the Lesotho countryside! These organized tours give you access to parts of the country which you wouldn’t see from your car. The exceptionally sure-footed Basotho Pony can take you through far-off villages and atop daunting mountains.

Hiking in the Highlands. Contact the Department of Tourism, who will find you a guide, and then fly into a completely cut off village and hike your way out, staying in remote villages over night. You can also purchase 1:25,000 topographical maps for about 25LSL from the office of Lands, Surveys, and Physical Planning in downtown Maseru and do this yourself (recommended only for experienced hikers).

Craft shopping at Maseru, Teyateyaneng, or Hlotse, where you can buy traditional Basotho hats, sticks, rugs and various other curios.
