Cheap flights from Lesotho

Long an underrated country, Lesotho has a lot more to offer for visitors willing to take a chance on it. The alpine landscapes are wonderfully striking, making the country an excellent hiking and horseback riding territory. The lowlands of the country are also a misnomer, as the lowest point of Lesotho's terrain is around 1,000 metres. The mountain lodges and trading posts also make quite a sight, where one can also do some shopping for traditional crafts.

Where to go

The great outdoors beckons in Lesotho, where one can visit the Bokong Nature Reserve, which has the most dramatic landscapes of the three northern parks in the country. Looking out to the stunning views over the Lepaqoa Valley can be a rewarding experience, as well as checking out the impressive waterfall in the area. Those who want to camp overnight can stay in a simple, four-person hut. From here, tourists can move to Ts'ehlanyane National Park, which protects a beautiful 5,600 hectares of rugged wilderness. One can also explore here one of the indigenous forests of Lesotho. Apart from hikes, one can rent a horse to cover more terrain and take on some of the more challenging trails here.

Sehlabathebe National Mark, a remote and rugged wonderland, is also an important part of the itinerary. The rolling grasslands are only some of the areas to visit here, as tourists can also turn to different parts of the park to see various types of birds and other creatures. Tourists can then turn to Liphofun Cave Cultural Historical Site where one can look at some paintings and Stone Age heritage sites.

Durban, the third-largest city of South Africa, is a place to visit for its colonial buildings and fascinating art deco architecture. It is also a multicultural vibe, with various Indians selling in the marketplace aromatic features of their spices that make tasty and mouth-watering food. Some of the sights to check out here include Kwazulu Natal Society of Arts. Its exhibits are primarily modern art, and while others can head to the outdoor cafe to take in the surrounding area. The Vasco da Gama Clock, a Victorian landmark can also be found here, which marks the explorer's first sighting of Natal.

From here, tourists can check out the Old House Museum, the home of the first prime minister of Natal. Although located in a less savoury part of town, the place is intriguing to see. From here, tourists can head out to the countryside. Nearby national parks can be part of the list, such as Umhlanga Lagoon Nature Reserve, located on a river mouth just north of town. Various bird species can be found here, as well as a fine dune forest that cuts across the lagoon and the beach.

A trip to faraway Guyana in South America can be added to the possible places to visit. One will find here relatively untouched natural environment, which can please those out to enjoy ecotourism activities. One can venture here to see Kaieteur Falls, where about 30,000 gallons of water per second are short out from over a 250-metre cliff. Those fresh out of travelling from the countryside can then go around Georgetown and visit the Botanical Gardens, where one can find various bird species flying about the area. From here, one can then look at the grand St George's Cathedral designed in an Anglican, Gothic-style.
