Voice of Travelers to Lesotho

I had a great trip in Lesotho. The ticket was so cheap!

Last year I booked a ticket from Kenya to Lesotho. My ticket to Lesotho was booked with Kenya Airways. The ticket that I purchased was an economy class ticket and I was amazed by the service. The visa policy of Lesotho was relaxed and caused me no difficulties. Air tickets to Lesotho from Kenya are cheap and very affordable. Unfortunately, I did not have much time to explore Lesotho and will be booking another ticket to visit the country. I hope to explore Lesotho more on my next visit. I hope that I can find another cheap ticket to Lesotho. Incidentally, my father booked his ticket to Lesotho just last week!

Lesotho is such a beautiful country. So glad I booked my ticket!

My ticket to Lesotho was booked on South African Airways. The crew were very professional. Since I was booked on a first-class ticket, the service was extremely good. I really enjoyed the flight. The reason I booked a ticket to Lesotho in the first place was to visit Afriski. It was the best place I have visited. I will never forget the adventures I had! Once in Afriski, I booked a ticket for a mountain biking tour and another ticket for a hiking tour. I had such a great time! I would encourage everyone to book a ticket to Lesotho to experience this amazing country. Air tickets, as well as coach tickets to Lesotho are so cheap from South Africa. The local people were really friendly and I felt right at home.
