Never heard of skiing on the African continent? Think again! Lesotho is a small country in South Africa, known as the mountain kingdom. The whole country is above 3,281 ft in elevation and it is home to the Maloti mountain range. Due to its extreme elevation, Lesotho has much cooler temperatures than the rest of South Africa, and of course is blessed with snow during its very cold winters.
Lesotho has only one ski resort; the Afriski Mountain Resort which is a much beloved family friendly resort with a strong community feel to it. There is just under 2km of slopes to enjoy, at an altitude of between 3,030m to 3,222m. The slopes cater to all abilities but are particularly good for families and beginners.
The views are outstanding and take your breath away as soon as you arrive at the resort.
There’s plenty to do around the area in the summer as much as in the winter; such as mountain biking. Lesotho is a massive mountain biking destination due to the incredible terrain and landscape. Afriski holds many biking festivals and events throughout the year that celebrate all this wonderful place has to offer.
Snapping up property in Lesotho is a good move if you are interested in spending time exploring this amazing place. If you wish to rent your home to holidaymakers, you’ll find it a sound investment with great rental income opportunities.
