Photos of Lesotho. These can be scenic landscape or portraits of the local Basotho people. Each has it’s own special story to tell.

Lesotho a photographers dream

Lesotho a photographers dream

Africa never ceases to amaze me. Over thirty years of living on this continent and there are still surprises to be had and many roads to be more travelled. And so it was when my husband and I travelled to Lesotho for the first time for a weekend at Maliba Mountain Lodge.

On the spur of the moment we decided to start our year off somewhere beautiful and not sorting our house out at home as we had originally intended. A few Internet searches led us to the  Maliba Lodge Website and we were sold.  Seeing as this was a treat we decided to treat ourselves the whole way and book into the Mountain Lodge, even though the River Lodge looked as appealing.

The “Lucky” hicking guide of Malealea

The “Lucky” hicking guide of Malealea

We love hiking and usually hire guides in order to learn more about the country while discovering the country on foot. Our guide was named LUCKY…his basotho name was very long an complicate to pronounce, thus the guides tend to use their English names. Lucky is 22 years old and has for the past 2 or 3 years been working as a guide at Malealea. He loves his work and it grants him and his family a small income. Even though Lucky is still relatively young, he is full of knowledge and wonderfully skilled as a guide.
