Jeff Horwitz's (Almost) Complete Lesotho Home Page
The following is a list of Web sites that contain news and information about the southern African kingdom of Lesotho. Please contact me with any errors, omissions or suggestions. This site was last updated on April 7, 1998.
- The CIA's World Factbook page on Lesotho has a general map of the mountain kingdom along with information on the country's geography, people, government, economy, communications and defense forces.
- The Department of State's Consular Information Sheet contains up to date advisories and information that all travelers should note. But before traveling there, make sure that there isn't a current Travel Warning. (If this file is not found, then there is no warning.)
- Mphahlele Moruthane's Home Page will give you a Masotho's view of the country, complete with lyrics to the national anthem (and a translation) and an explanation of the Flag of Lesotho
- The Ethnologue's Lesotho entry provides limited information on the country, but it includes some useful statistics on such native languages as Sesotho.
- And if you're interested in Sesotho, why not learn some phrases at Travlang's Sesotho sa moeti or at Jako Olivier's Sesotho page?
- British Columbia's 1994 Commonwealth Games site has information on Commonwealth Nations. The main Lesotho page has a small amount of useful information. More interesting is the More on Lesotho page, which shows the national flag, interprets its symbols and colors, and gives the Sesotho lyrics to and an English translation of Lesotho's national anthem.
- The Commonwealth Online offers a great page on The Kingdom of Lesotho Demographics.
- The University of Pennsylvania's African Studies program contains a list of contacts at the Lesotho Embassy in the U.S.
- City.net Lesotho has a healthy list of links to country maps and information.
- The National University of Lesotho - Thomas Mofolo Library page, in addition to its information about the library and the university, has a list of Lesotho and South Africa links.
- UPenn also contains a limited list of links on its Lesotho Page.
- UPenn's topographical Country Map, borrowed from the CIA, is the best on the Web (and the largest - 333K).
