Where is Lesotho?
Lesotho, the small kingdom in Southern Africa, is virtually landlocked and surrounded by South Africa over a distance of 909 km. It is a wonderful mountainous country roughly the size of Belgium. It also holds a unique world record:
It is the only country in the world that lies at an altitude of 1,388 metres (lowest point) – 3,482 metres (highest point).
Because of this distinct altitude the country is also referred to as “The Kingdom in the Sky”.
Furthermore Lesotho is very well known for its traditional greeting:
Khotso – Peace
Pula – Rain
Nala – Sufficiency
Sufficiency means that people never need more than to fulfil their basic needs and to thus maintain their freedom and liberty.
