Wow! We were blessed with 2 feet of snow while travelling en route to Afriski in the mountains. When you descend from the top of the pass, you see this wonderland. Like a magazine. We spent the day on the slopes tubing and relaxing. Excellent weather. Not the normal holiday crowd, Facilities very good. Recommend the WoolyMammoeth! And the choc... More

Our stay exceeded all expectations. Admittedly, we were lucky to have such great snow, but the resort is a world-class mini-version of a European or American ski resort. Good, clean, simple accommodation at 3-star Tirol chalet, great food and beverage at the Gondola Bar and the Sky restaurant with friendly and efficient service throughout. The skiing offers extremely gentle slopes... More

Couldn't ask for a better weekend away,staff was great and friendly at every point you move from boots and ski's to snowpass which was great but one major problem for me and im sure for alot is why not have the equipment shop closer to the snowpass counter you can't expect a 6 year old to carry his ski's and...

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
