Lesotho In - Depth 

10 Day Cultural and Service Tour


Known as the Kingdom in the Sky, Lesotho is country full of sweeping vistas and traditional villages tucked into mountain sides. The only country in the world to be completely surrounded by another country, Lesotho shares all of its borders with South Africa. The Basotho (Ba sue too) people of Lesotho are fiercely independent and take pride in their kingdom, which never suffered through apartheid as did South Africa. As we spend time in the remote, mountain villages of Lesotho, you will experience a part of Africa like no other.
