KINGDOM OF LESOTHO
Name: Makata Nkarabeng Juliet
• Basutoland gained independence on the 4th October
1966 from the United Kingdom and it was renamed
the kingdom of Lesotho. This is a small, mountainous,
landlocked country surrounded by its much larger
neighbor, South Africa.
Lesotho is a home to the
beautiful Maletsunyane falls,
the tallest single drop
waterfalls in Southern Africa
where one can enjoy trekking
in the breathtaking of Maloti
Mountains. The waterfall is
located in Semonkong.
WATERFALLS
 Semonkong is the place situated in the
Highlands of Lesotho in Maseru district.
It once served as hideout for outlaws
and this day untamed and remote
atmosphere. The name of this village
means the "place of smoke” which
derives from Maletsunyane falls. This
waterfall creates ”smoke” because it is
the highest drop in Southern Africa.
There are so many activities that can be done in
Semonkong thus include:
• Hiking, biking trials, Maletsunyane falls, pony-trekking
trials and trout fishing hence tourism attractions.
 This is a waterfall is located in
Mafeteng district. The water
falls perpendicular or very
steep descent of the water of
the stream.
 It is one of the waterfalls in
Lesotho and it has an
elevation of 2225 meters.
Ketane falls is situated close
to the helmets Ha Hlalele and
Khubetsoana Sekolong.
KETANE WATERFALLS
 Lesotho has the maloti mountains which are
part of the Drakensburg range. This mountain
range is known for its towering peaks
including Thabana Ntlenyane and Thaba-
Putsoa (at 3482 meters) which is the highest
point in Lesotho. The maloti mountains offer
amazing hiking opportunities and stunning
views of the rugged landscape which attracts
tourist.
This mountain was named Thaba-Bosiu. It is
a historical site and cultural landmark in
Lesotho. It is a sandstone plateau located
about 25km east of Maseru the capital town
of Lesotho. Thaba-Bosiu served as a
stronghold of king Moshoeshoe 1, the
founder of Basotho Nation and it was
instrumental in the resistance against colonial
invasion in the 19th century. Today, it is a
national monument and a popular tourist
attraction with museum and various historical
sites that provide insight into the history of
Lesotho and Basotho people
• It is therefore one of the
tourism attractions for several
reasons such as :
• HISTORY: As a national
monument. The story of
Moshoeshoe1.The resistance
against the colonial invaders.
• SCENIC VIEWS: Beauty and
the uniqueness offered by the
sandstone plateau to the
countryside.
SEHLABATHEBE

including the Drakensberg escarpment and
sandstone formations. Sehlabathebe was
also designated as a UNESCO world

 Ts'ehlanyane National Park is located in
Leribe district in the North eastern part of
Lesotho. It is known for its rugged terrain,
which includes sandstone, cliffs, waterfalls
and the beautiful oxbow lake. The park is
also a home to several plant species, such

spiral aloe, as well as wildlife like eland,
baboons and various bird species. The
park provides excellent opportunities for
