For just over a week we wandered the beautiful mountain kingdom of Lesotho with the primary mission of seeing the country. Our secondary mission in Lesotho is to avoid the inevitable Easter school holiday crowds in the popular resorts, which we have creatively named ‘Operation Escape Easter’. For the avoidance of doubt, this ‘escaping’ of Easter applies only to the avoidance of the holiday crowds and certainly not to the avoidance of the traditional consumption of large quantities of chocolate, a custom which we will rigorously and selflessly uphold over the period 😉 ). The only downside of our time in Lesotho has been the lack of internet connectivity (or is that on the plus side? 🙂 ). Now we’re back in the twenty-first century of South Africa again for the final leg of the Africa trip, we have updated the Africa Blog.

- tackling the disappointingly uneventful climb up Sani Pass
- the moderately successful ‘Operation Escape Easter’ and our mingle with Lesotho Royalty
- the friendliest campsite at Malealea and meeting the holders of the Guinness world record for overland travelling – we have only 29 years to go to catch them up!
