Afriski Mountain Resort

With a beautiful mountainous landscape that stretches the horizon, matchless views, fresh mountain air, and miles of untouched territory waiting for you to explore, it is no wonder that Afriski Mountain Resort (and the greater Lesotho area) is known as the "kingdom in the sky".

Afriski is often referred to as the "winter playground for skiers and snowboarders alike"; but is increasingly more popular during the warmer summer months; with the greenest valleys and mountains, baby blue skies and earnest African sun, making it the ultimate setting for exploration and fun.

The Resort is an adventure-seeker's paradise - with majestic mountain terrain to explore through various biking and hiking trails, abseiling, paintballing, cultural trips and a whole range of activities. This unique destination, tucked away in the highlands of northern Lesotho is equally ideal for families looking to spend quality time together and seeking adventure; as it is for couples in need of a romantic mountain escape, with plenty of high energy on-site activities to enjoy together.
