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.

Great holiday! Whistler camp was clean and fantastic and the food at the sky restaurant was really great. Snowboarding was a lot of fun

Magic ski resort in Lesotho. I visit every year for the past 6 years. Very friendly staff. Cannot wait to return back to resort soon. Prefer this resort above the opposition in SA.

The interior rooms are warm and cozy with comfortable beds. A very nice budget accommodation. The best place to ski/board in Africa! :)

Accommodation at vail was too basic and very small for the sky high price charged. The sky restaurant was warm and great, prices were what you'd pay in a normal 3star restaurant. Live music at restaurant was a nice touch. I also enjoyed the karaoke...More

Sadly there was too much slush on the kids beginner slope. The ski instructor was not great. He should have taken the kids onto the intermediate nursery slope where the gradient was better. We had to pay for private lessons to advance the process. By...More

Very nice skiing holiday for our family of 4. My son (only 4) did not ski and this proved to be the only challenge as we had to keep him occupied. But very friendly staff. Great vibe! Would definitely visit again.

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.
