Getting There – Lesotho
Travel restrictions and additional entry requirements may apply for Lesotho due to the coronavirus pandemic and if so, can change from day-to-day. Please visit our coronavirus page to stay informed about the latest developments.
Lesotho is totally surrounded by South Africa. To get to Lesotho by air or overland, you’ll have to come through South Africa. Your point of entry in South Africa is most likely O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) in Johannesburg. From here, you can take a flight to Moshoeshoe I International Airport (MSU) in Maseru, Lesotho’s capital city. Scheduled flights from Johannesburg to Maseru can be booked with Airlink.
To get to Lesotho by road (either on a tour or on a self-drive trip), most people use the scenic Sani Pass to Sani Top on the South Africa–Lesotho border. You’re only allowed onto the pass with a 4x4 vehicle.
