Visit Afriski Mountain Resort – An Unexpected High. The Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho is a country rich in culture and rugged beauty. Afriski Mountain Resort, tucked away in the northern highlands, provides a gateway to this largely untapped world of high-altitude adventure. Situated in the heart of the Drakensberg-Maluti Mountains, this luxury resort caters to every taste and offers the perfect escape for sport and outdoor enthusiasts, corporate parties as well as families. With a selection of accommodation options, as well as a range of on-site facilities and restaurants, Afriski has all you need for the perfect mountain getaway. In summer, ambitious mountain goats explore the peaks in pursuit of a wide range of outdoor endeavours. The resort welcomes mountain bikers, trail-runners, hikers, fly fishermen as well as enduro and off-road enthusiasts equally. Multiple trails, paths and streams await discovery. When the seasons turn, and the cold descends, our ski slopes come to life. In addition, log fires in the evening provide time to unwind, kick back and relax. Afriski provides a touch of Europe just around the corner – without the demands of a long-haul flight. Feed your restless soul. Join us at 3222m above sea level in the Mountain Kingdom.

Good family fun for the whole family. But should not be compared to Euro Resorts. If you are looking for Quality family time and not Serious skiing this is a good place to go.

We decided to take the kids to Afriski to experience snow for the first time. The drive on the winding road was long but well worth it. Afriski is nestled on top of the Maluti Mountains. From the time we entered the gate we felt...More

We loved our stay at Afriski! We stayed in Aspen, which was the perfect place for our group of 6, and the gas fireplace really added to the winter feel. It was also extremely close to the slopes, so it was great to be able...More

Went skiing for the first time with family! It was pretty cool, but I soon realized why so few locals actually ski. The prices are very prohibitive for locals. The self catering accommodation was very good(except they need to accommodate couples, after all it's a...More

The main slope is only at 200m at the moment but the slope is being expanded but without natural snow fall it is taking longer than last year. Still we had a great time this last week.
