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.

Staff are not very helpful when trying to fins where to get a ski pass when you arrive, but for a single slope it is a good fun day of playing around if you have been overseas, but wouldn't go for more than 1 day

Excellent snowboarding/ski resort! Afriski has amazing instructors to help anyone from beginner to the more advanced snowboarder/skier. The atmosphere is serene and some of the most amazing views that you will experience. I do recommend this to anyone with a love of adventure sports!

It is our 5 time at Afriski and we are never dissapointed, actually it just gets better every time. We stayed at the Whistler camp this year and was very impressed with the accommodation!

You can make it in a 2x4 comfortably as long as there is no snow on road. Check the Afriski website for road condition updates or call their reception directly and they'll help

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.
