Afriski Mountain Resort in the Kingdom of Lesotho is an all year mountain adventure destination with a multitude of winter and summer activities. Situated in the northern part of the country, it is the only ski resort in Lesotho, offering a unique winter experience that is not usually found in Africa.
The mountain nation of the Basotho people and the inimitable rural African lifestyle, provides a special atmosphere, one that is both proud and warmly welcoming. Contrasting, complex Africa has many varied attractions but snow is not one associated with the world’s second largest continent. There won’t be snow in Africa, Bob Geldof wrote in 1984, but then he hadn’t been to Afriski, and the Lesotho highlands, where annually the fortunate few can experience and explore a winter playground from June until August.
Afriski was established in 2002 and the introduction of modern snow-making facilities and lifts has allowed skiing and snowboarding to flourish in the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. The resort offers a scenic environment and a comfortable atmosphere that belies the adventure waiting to be explored.
