With all of it’s land lying at altitudes in excess of 1300m above sea-level, it is a land of heights and extremes; Lesotho is beautiful, culturally rich and famous for its spectacular scenic beauty, breathtaking mountain ranges, towering peaks, a rich variety of flora and fauna, crystal clear streams, surging waterfalls and awesome adventure.
Go Volunteer Africa invites you to volunteer & travel in the beautiful mountain kingdom of Lesotho. Lesotho faces extinction as HIV/AIDS has ravaged the population of just two million with a quarter of all adults having the virus and half of all women in the country being infected.
Lesotho, a high-altitude, landlocked kingdom encircled by South Africa, is crisscrossed by a network of rivers and mountain ranges including the 3,482m-high peak of Thabana Ntlenyana. On the Thaba Bosiu plateau, near Lesotho’s capital, Maseru, are ruins dating from the 19th-century reign of King Moshoeshoe I. Thaba Bosiu overlooks iconic Mount Qiloane, an enduring symbol of the nation’s Basotho people.
