Closer to home but a world away from the stresses and strains of everyday life, Lesotho offers you a warm welcome – no matter how cold and snowy the winters may get. Explore the Maluti mountains, test your own limits on the slopes or discover the rich cultural heritage of the Basotho people – it’s all here for you.
Reflecting the diversity of Lesotho’s landscapes, Afriski offers experiences to suit just about everybody, no matter what season it is and what you’re into. Summer is trails time: MTB, Enduro, hiking and altitude training. And when the snow falls, it’s time to strap on your skis or snowboard and head for the slopes or Kapoko Snow Park.
As meltwater swells the clear, fast mountain streams, alpine flowers announce the arrival of summer. With miles of trails offering challenges, rewards and views in equal measure, Afriski is a superb summer destination for anyone who loves the outdoors – and it doesn’t get any greater than the Maluti Mountains.
Why fly overseas when you can enjoy awesome downhill action and bars and restaurants with a vibey après-ski scene at Afriski? Everything you’d expect from a ski resort, including epic slopes, ski lifts and the opportunity for you (and your kids) to practice (or gain) some serious snow skills.
Afriski is just five hours’ drive from Johannesburg or Pretoria, via quick and easy border posts. Winter driving conditions in Lesotho can be unpredictable, so it’s best to come prepared and check our live weather reports before you head here.
Throughout the year, Afriski hosts some of Lesotho’s most exciting music festivals, mountain sports competitions and altitude adventures. Check our social media channels for the latest details, and be sure to book accommodation as well as tickets.
