Like most of the other South African and African gambling destinations, the Lesotho Sun is not just about winning or losing money on the slots or roulette. Perched on a hillside overlooking the capital of Lesotho, Maseru, the Lesotho Sun is as much a spa and wellness center as it is a gambling establishment. The complex features a gym, sauna, as well as various opportunities to engage in adventure sports. 4x4 adventures, ATV rides, horseback treks and fishing await visitors. There’s also a well equipped children’s playground, where the adults can drop off the kids for a little bit of peace and quiet as the young ones entertain themselves.
The Lesotho Sun casino creates a wild contrast between the serenity of the surrounding landscape and the wild and glamorous world of casino gambling. The casino features slots, American Roulette, blackjack and just about any table game one might expect to find in a prime gambling establishment. The casino is open daily, however if you like to gamble late into the night, it may not be the place for you. The table games section (there are a total of 8 tables available) closes at 16:00 on weekdays and at 13:00 on weekends (meaning Saturday and Sunday). The slots section (there are 120 premium slot machines available) closes at 10:00 every day.
While the main focus of the Lesotho Sun complex may not be on gambling, it is still one of the most sought-after destinations among gamblers all over South Africa. The various attractions of the surrounding area probably have a lot to do with that too: Lesotho Sun guests will be able to visit the Maluti Mountains, as well as the Kome Cave village at Sefikeng, said to have been home to cannibals in the past. The Mohale and the Katse dams as well as the Sani Pass are also visit-worthy places.
