A day wel spent

We spent a lovely day driving up to the resort, enjoying the beautiful mountains and breathtaking scenery. Lesotho is truly African and a nice change of South Africa.

We had the time of our lives. Coming from Guateng where we see snow once every 20 years, this is really a treat. First of all you need to get there first. Make sure your passport is valid to cross the Lesotho border. Then secondly put your brave face on to cross the mountains getting to the ski resort. We... More

This was a day well spent, it was so fun for my partner and I and its perfect for families. The drive up to the mountain was breathtaking with gorgeous views. It's a beautiful experience and I can recommend it to anyone whether you ski or not. The facility is well managed, there's no need to buy ski equipment; it... More

Not just a Winter Wonderland... Beautiful spot in midSummer too. Breathtaking scenery of miles and miles of views. Very low temperatures outside despite December. Cosy and toasty indoors. Great Hospitality and Scrumptious Food. We ordered 5 different dinners and all shared a taste. Accommodation typical sky resort style, pokey yet comfortable and warm. -3°degrees in the morning we left 😨

We went to Afriski in the summer for a weekend getaway from Joburg. I never realised that it was even open in the sunny months, but we had a great time there. It was a particularly quiet weekend, but the staff were really helpful and friendly. One or two items weren't available on the menu at the restaurant but that... More

We visited during natural snow cover and Afriski looked spectacular. The resort is well run and organised and there is ample choice in terms of food and drink. The checkin process with the equipment hire and ski lessons was quick and efficient. Unfortunately soon after the start of the first round of ski lessons I started feeling sick from the... More

I was surprised to find something like this place in rural lesotho . Since i'm not a big skier , I hang out most of the time at the bar area, listening to music and chatting with people.For a moment I felt i'm in Europe and not in Africa. Good place to spend the weekend with friends

We stopped over when we passed through on a drive from the Sani pass. The ski area was closed as there was no snow. We had lunch and drinks at the sky restaurant and had excellent service. Worth a stop over.

We've stayed at the backpackers and although my son was there previously, it was my first time. Was a bit nervous about possible noisy evenings, etc. but the experience was out of this world. Resort staff is eager to assist, no matter what your requirements are. Although bedrooms are tiny, the dining area is big and bathrooms have plenty of... More
