Lesotho, also known as the "Kingdom in the Sky," is a small landlocked country located in southern Africa. It is a unique destination for tourists who are looking for an off-the-beaten-path adventure. Lesotho is known for its stunning mountainous landscapes, which offer breathtaking views and opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, and skiing. The country is also home to a rich cultural heritage, with traditional Basotho villages and festivals that showcase the local way of life. Visitors can explore the capital city of Maseru, visit the historic Thaba-Bosiu plateau, or experience the thrill of the Maletsunyane Falls, one of the highest single-drop waterfalls in Africa. Lesotho is a must-visit destination for those seeking an authentic African experience.
Lesotho Immunization Recommendations and Requirements
Before traveling, make sure you are up-to-date on all of your routine immunizations including influenza and COVID-19. Note that many vaccines that are now considered "routine" were not available until recent decades so you may not have received them at all, depending on your age and other factors.
Infants, 6 to 11 months old should receive one dose of MMR and Hepatitis A prior to visiting Lesotho. This does not count toward routine childhood immunizations.
