Maseru

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 out of town with these interesting Maseru side-trips: Morija Museum & Archives (in Morija) and Gates of Paradise Pass (in Malealea). There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Maluti Mountains, see human ingenuity at work at Mohale Dam, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Our Lady of Victory Cathedral, and look for gifts at Lesotho Co-operative Handicrafts.

For photos, ratings, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Maseru sightseeing planner.

Johannesburg, South Africa to Maseru is an approximately 3-hour combination of car, flight, and train. You can also drive; or do a combination of car, bus, taxi, and train. Expect little chillier weather when traveling from Johannesburg in November: highs in Maseru hover around 27°C, while lows dip to 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
