Lesotho is a small country within South Africa that is known for its mountainous terrain, cascading waterfalls, and abundance of scenic beauty. It is a hidden gem for landscape photographers and one of the must-see destinations in Lesotho is the Maletsunyane Falls and Sehlabathebe National Park.

The Maletsunyane Falls is located in the southern part of Lesotho. It is one of the highest single-drop waterfalls in the world, with a height of 192 meters. The waterfall, which is fed by the Maletsunyane River, offers a unique and breathtaking view of the surrounding landscape. From the top, you can see the mist rising from the bottom of the falls and the lush greenery surrounding it. The best time to visit the falls is during the rainy season when the water flow is at its highest.

Sehlabathebe National Park is another destination that offers a wealth of opportunities for landscape photographers. The park is home to a wide range of wildlife, including elands, leopards, and over 200 bird species. The park also offers a diverse range of landscapes, including rocky outcrops, grasslands, and mountain ranges that form part of the greater Drakensberg range.

The San rock art provides a glimpse into the culture and history of the people who once lived in the area.

The park offers a wide range of vantage points to capture the sunset, which is a photographer's dream come true. The sunset will be followed by a night drive through the park, giving you the opportunity to capture photos of the nocturnal animals. The tour will also include a visit to a local village, where you will have the opportunity to capture photos of the local people and their way of life. This will give you a chance to capture unique and interesting photos that showcase the culture and traditions of the people of Lesotho.
