Lesotho – known as the Mountain Kingdom, share more than just the Lesotho Highlands Water Project with South Africa. Lesotho is surrounded on all sides by South Africa and therefor is reliant in many aspects on South Africa. Here you will not see the latest sports cars. The main transport used in Lesotho is donkeys, ox wagens (not Volkswagens) and Lesotho ponies.
For Yellowfish fisherman and woman the greatest resource shared by both countries is Largemouth Yellowfish (Labeobarbus kimberleyensis) and Smallmouth Yellowfish (Labeobarbus aeneus). The latter being more common in Lesotho. They occur in the Orange River known in Lesotho as the Senqu River and other tributaries like the Bokong River. The Katse dam also has healthy Yellowfish populations.
Lesotho is one of the most exotic destinations on our border, offering sight fishing like now other (except for maybe Sterkfontein Dam in the Freestate of South Africa), green mountain sides, high mountains and a rural experience.
In Lesotho you will lose yourself, but also find your true self, earthing your soul to the soil of Africa.
