Accommodation Facilities

The country is under-supplied with accommodation facilities of appropriate standards particularly along key and strategic tourism nodes.
Lack of accommodation is the major source of revenue leakage from tourism in Lesotho. Droves of tourists from South Africa cross into Lesotho for the day, only to go back and sleepover in South Africa.

Health and Wellness Resorts

Lesotho has a number of attributes that can be leveraged to position the country as a health and wellness destination.

These include:

  • High altitude
  • Clean mountain air
  • Abundance of naturally clean water
  • Distinct seasons of the year
  • Endemic medicinal plants
  • Hot springs
  • Seclusiveness

Thus health spas and wellness resorts are an area with great potential.

Water Sports and Recreation

Existing and prospective Lesotho Highlands Water Project dams pose a notable opportunity for initiating water-based sporting and recreational activities. In particular the dams are suited to leisure cruise boats and extreme sporting events. Already the Corporation (LTDC) is operating a small cruise on Mohale dam. This operation will be transferred to a private operator for more efficient operation and further development.

These types of activities are suitable for both the Katse and Mohale dams. In addition to these two dams, there are further developments in the pipeline; namely, Phase 2 of the Highlands Water Project, and the Metolong lowlands water supply reservoir which will spawn more

High Altitude Training Facilities

One of the major unique features of the country is altitude. Lesotho is the only country in the world which lies entirely 1000m above sea level. In fact, the lowest point in Lesotho is 1400m above sea level. Thus Lesotho is an ideal location for high altitude sports training facilities.

A high class, integrated facility is envisaged that would feature among other things:

  • Outdoor and indoor sports arenas
  • Accommodation
  • Wellness spa(s)
  • Sports treatment / medi-centre
