  • A very beautiful place in Lesotho Maseru to be specific. To get there one must have a good mechanical car, know how to drive as Lesotho is a mountainous place. Have a camera and be ready for excellent Basotho behaviour and spirit. The place is so breathtaking and the waterfall is just on its on state, viewpoint thereof is excellent and allows you to take pictures for the sake of memories.
