Lesotho can be one of the most unforgiving places in southern Africa, especially in the winter months. Sections of the country are up to 3 000m above sea level, leaving the higher reaches treacherous and impassable for parts of the year.
But in summer, after the rains, there’s no place more beautiful in the region.
For hundreds of years, most of the high-lying areas were only accessible to herdsmen on their ponies. In recent years, however, a number of the time-etched pony trails have been upgraded to good quality gravel roads, allowing us access to the best and wildest parts of the country.
