The country’s beautiful scenery and the hospitality of the local people will make a trip to Lesotho one that you will not soon forget. Lesotho is one of only three independent states that are completely surrounded by another independent state. The other two are both within Italy, so that makes Lesotho the only one in Africa, and the only one anywhere in the world outside of Europe. Lesotho is a relatively small country, with a size of only 30,000 square kilometers (11,583 square miles) and it has a population of approximately 2 million inhabitants. The largest city in Lesotho is Maseru, which is also the nation’s capital. Previously, the Kingdom of Lesotho was a colony of the British Crown and it was known as Basutoland. Lesotho achieved its independence in 1966. Lesotho is also home to some of the best-known car racing events, the annual Roof of Africa Rally, where off-road drivers are challenged with crossing the Maluti Mountains at altitudes often beyond 3,000 meters (9,842 feet) above sea level. Lesotho is also a country with a very rich history, and is home to countless specimens of Bushman rock art. It is believed that the first homo sapiens to ever live at high altitude were residents of Lesotho. There are many historical sites across the country, including places where you can see original cave paintings, depicting traditions, hunting methods, cooking and meal preparation techniques. These images show a way of living that has since been long forgotten. Most of these cave paintings are found in locations that also harbor immense natural beauty, often in areas known for their unique sandstone formations, where nature and the elements have formed cliff overhangs that would have provided the perfect shelter and living conditions for the early inhabitants of Lesotho. One of the best places to see this primitive art form is in the caves in Kome. The country is also full of National Parks that serve both to protect the beauty of the country and its wildlife, and to make it easy for visitors to enjoy it. Lesotho is also home to some of the most pristine dinosaur fossils in the world. It is the go-to place for paleontologists and also archaeologists. There is even a dinosaur whose name originates from the name of the kingdom. It is called the Lesothosaurus, and it was a long herbivorous lizard that lived around 200 million years ago. There are many sites with dinosaur remains around Lesotho, and one of the most famous sites with some of the best preserved dinosaur footprints is in Quthing.
