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 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. The resort welcomes mountain bikers, trail-runners, hikers, fly fishermen as well as enduro and off-road enthusiasts equally. When the seasons turn, and the cold descends, our ski slopes come to life. Afriski provides a touch of Europe just around the corner – without the demands of a long-haul flight. Join us at 3222m above sea level in the Mountain Kingdom.

The booking staff and those working at the resort dont have good lines of communication. Thankfully Shaun, manager of the Sky restaurant, cleared things up and made the weekend a great one in the end!

Visited to participate in a 2 day stage trail run 3222. The event was excellent and so was the venue, facilities and friendly staff. Well done we will be back.

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.
