Skiing in Africa

by Pete August. 13, 2013 3984 views

Lesotho is home to the highest ski resort in Africa — Afri Ski — which is situated a comfortable distance from the Caledonspoort Border Post in the Eastern Free State. The Afri Ski Resort opened in 2002 and offers several accommodation packages, ranging from the simplicity of a backpackers’ lodge to up-market log cabins.

The resort offers winter-sports for both young and old, with a special children’s board and ski area, as well as ski lessons for beginners on gentle nursery slopes in addition to the more challenging slopes for experienced skiers.

on Monday morning the whole area was covered in natural snow. We were there at the wrong time. Sigh
