Every country in Africa has an outstanding feature, and Lesotho’s is Maletsunyane Falls. This beautiful site near Semonkong, a town in Lesotho, is a geological gem.
Maletsunyane Falls is one of the highest waterfalls in Southern Africa. Its water plunges to depths of 196 meters (Victoria Falls has a 108 meters drop, for reference). Maletsunyane Falls creates such an epic scene; it looks like a set in a fantasy feature film.
As the water plummets down to the abyss below, it builds a massive amount of mist. It is from this phenomenon that the area receives its name. Semonkong means the ‘place of smoke.’
Abseiling is a popular sport at the falls. Other activities include hiking, rock climbing, swimming, trout fishing, bird watching, and mountain biking.
