Maseru — 4 nights

Founded in 1869 by the British, Lesotho's main city--Maseru--lies on the border with South Africa on a plateau surrounded by red hills.
Get in touch with nature at Maletsunyane Falls Semonkong and Maluti Mountains. Step off the beaten path and head to Avani Lesotho Hotel & Casino and Lesotho Co-operative Handicrafts. Change things up with a short trip to Ha Kome Cave Houses in Teyateyaneng (about 1h 15 min away). There's still lots to do: see human ingenuity at work at Katse Dam, buy something for everyone on your list at Pioneer Mall, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Our Lady of Victory Cathedral, and browse the exhibits of National Museum.

To see more things to do, reviews, maps, and tourist information, use the Maseru holiday planner.

You can drive from Butha-Buthe to Maseru in 2.5 hours. Another option is to do a combination of car and bus. Traveling from Butha-Buthe in July, plan for a bit warmer nights in Maseru, with lows around 5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sun) early enough to fly back home.

Kingdom in the Sky
Mountainous Lesotho lends itself well to an adventurous holiday itinerary. Entirely located above 1,000 m (3,280 ft) in elevation, the country enjoys a cool climate with around 300 days of sunshine each year. Explorations of the mountains form the backbone of many Lesotho holidays. Remote villages located way up in the highlands, only accessible on foot or by horseback, offer a glimpse into the country's authentic culture with their lively markets, traditional eateries, and musical traditions.
