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.

Food and accommodation were excellent.. The country side was like being in a different world altogether. A good rest from the demands of city life.

It was a nice break, was a bit disappointed in the food at the restaurant, the fillet steak was not great.

Definitely worth it. From the thrill of driving across the border, through Lesotho, across the passes to afriski. Enjoy every moment, you just have to be very fit.

As many other people do, I went to Afriski just after a major snow fall. It's fantastic, only a few hours drive from Johannesburg & it is easy driving. As I expected, it was quite crowded, but the staff were handling it well. The food...More

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.
