Independent, impartial reviews of Maseru from SafariNow users
Maseru has beautiful landascapes perfect for "Kodak moments".
Unfortunately, I will give Maseru a zero rating for hospitality especially police officers who unashamely solicits bribes like there is no tomorrow and in the process shaming their wonderful country. My family was subjected & humiliated by Maseru police+traffic officers. I was detained for almost an hour @ midnight with my family still in car waiting for me. I totally refused to pay a bribe.

Admittedly Maseru is one of the best places to visit. The serenity that prevails in the area makes it difficult to resist being there. However, there are a few things that need to be put into perspective. Firstly there need to be sufficient robots in town or at least dysfunctional ones need to be repaired. Construction of roads and up to standard taxi rank in town need immediate attention. Pavements need paving and dusty areas in town make it unsightly. A bit of upgrading needs to be done in town. Otherwise the place is cool.

Maseru is the capital of Lesotho. It is also the capital of the Maseru District. Located on the Caledon River, bordering South Africa, Maseru is Lesotho's only sizable city.Sprawling MASERU, the nation's capital and only big town, spills east from the Caledon River, which marks the border with South Africa. Maseru was established by the British in 1869 as the administrative centre for newly annexed Basotholand, but Britain put as little effort into developing Maseru as it did the rest of the country, no doubt expecting it to become just a minor South African town when Basotholand was incorporated into South Africa.Surrounded by sprawling shantytown suburbs, the city has grown swiftly over recent years
