Royal Palace, Maseru

1.0
#8 of 11 in Things to do in Maseru
See Royal Palace, the relatively humble home of Lesotho’s royal family, nestled in a lush garden. Although small, the palace's use of red brick and rustic design lends it a delightful aesthetic. One of the most important political events in the country--the king’s oath of office--takes place in the residence when the throne is passed down family lines.

Where to stay in Maseru

A sure benefit of a quiet and small town like Maseru is that each hotel can be accessed quickly via taxi or public transport. The majority of the accommodations follow the main boulevard, which makes commuting easy. For those looking for something more removed from the hustle and bustle of the city center, the lakeside in the north is home to a few budget-friendly hotels and guesthouses. All establishments can be reached by taxi; the pricier ones usually have internet connection, as well.
