Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Fun in the sky!”
Reviewed 20 December 2016 via mobile

Absolutely amazing!! We had fun the sky! Suitable for families, and adventure lovers. Take a hike in Summer to enjoy the majestic views of the Maluti moutains or go up a ski lift to try out the enduro tracks. For dinner try their ribs..these are too delicious. Chill outside in the evening for a view of the stars.

P.S get an experienced driver that will excercise patience and caution as the mountain passes are dicey. Oh and pack something warm..you'll have a ball.

“Summer is not a good time to visit”
Reviewed 9 November 2016

We arrived to find that although they offer alot of activities they dont actually carry all of them out. We did a monster biking trip with an instructor who made it really fun, but its not a great place to visit in the summer. There is skeleton staff and the activities are limited. We were charged almost R100 for an alfredo pasta which was half cooked pasta with a very bland white sauce (Their vegetarian selection is very limited and even more so because they didnt have the stock to make some food / drinks, like milkshake). I am sure the winter is great with the snow (The facilities are definitely geared towards the winter season) but I felt their brochure promised a lot but wasnt able to fulfill the promises.

“Country in the clouds”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 via mobile

One of the most beautiful countries in Africa with the friendliest people
Lesotho is high up on top of the Maluthi mountains at 3225m above sea level in the clouds. Its major assests are water with two big dams the Mahole and Katse that supplies South Africa with fresh water there are also 2 major Diamond mines Country is safe although 4x4 vehicles are necessary to access undeveloped areas A must visit for the adventurous at heart

Resort is remote but the drive there was spectacular. Hope you have a head for heights. There was no snow during my visit, wrong time of year but there are a wide range of other activities for the adventurous. Well worth the trip. They also claim to be the highest restaurant in Africa and I can believe it.
