Maseru is a very small city. There isn’t much to explore. There is only one street connecting everything to everyone. The weather is unsteady, changing three times a day at times. Otherwise, it’s a very peaceful place. Everyone knows everyone and that makes it an easy city to go around.

Maseru, although quite small, is the biggest city in Lesotho. Maseru is warm and mountainous. It offers most basic needs like job opportunities, shopping malls, schools, and churches. It consists of both urban and regional residents. Maseru lies just near the Caledon River which separates Lesotho and South Africa.

Maseru is in a developing country and there is not much infrastructure. It is on a mountain because we have a mountainous country. It is very cold in winter with lots of snow and very hot in summer with lots of rain. It is such a peaceful place to be as our founder loved peace.
