If you are into skiing this is a place to go I myself do not ski, but watching all it looks nice I think it is expensive R 50 pp entrance and ± R 600 for a days fun They do training all levels of skiing and rent out kit

We spent 5 days at Afriski with our sons. Apart from my husband, none of us had experienced a ski holiday before. Our trip was a pleasure from the moment we got to customs. The Lesotho people are very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a room that could accommodate us all. It was spacious and had a great view... More

A gruelling 75km trip up hair-pin bends in a normal passenger vehicle from Butha-Buthe (as we had stayed at the Maliba River Lodge), all so worth the driver up 3200m above sea level. Amazing views of snow as is had just snowed in abundance two weeks prior to us arriving. There's the option of spending the day or booking at... More

We stayed in Fouriesburg to save costs, the drive to Afriski takes about 2 hours. Try and be at the border at 6 when it opens! The ski rental is very well organized and equipment of a high standard. Ski school for kids was very nice. Ski lifts, restaurants, other facilities very good. Overall a very nice vibe and experience!

We went for a day visit when staying in Fouriesburg and decided to go as there was heavy snowfall earlier in the week. The drive out there through the Moteng pass is already worth the effort. Beautiful white landscape with stunning views. The resort was packed as it was a long week-end but never felt trampled. We don't ski and... More

So this is a bit of a mixed review because some parts of it where absolutely wonderful, and other parts really put a damper on the holiday so I will write this review in sections. Overall As many will know, the weekend of 24 – 28 July saw an excessive amount of snow fall which resulted in a massive power... More

I have never stayed at the resort, but have been regularly to use the ski and snowboarding facilities. We go often with friends and have always found the staff friendly and helpful. I have never pre-booked ski passes or gear as the weather can be temperamental in winter and there may not be an opportunity to get on the slope.... More
