Embassies

 

 

I entered (and exited) Lesotho follows:

  • 2 April: From South Africa through the Sani Pass Border Posts, and
  • 3 April: To South Africa through the Caledonspoort Border Posts.

Both entry and exit procedures were pretty straight-forward. I did not attempt (or need) to use the carnet and only had to pay a ZAR 30-00 Road Fund Levy on entry.
