MPD - safe, affordable & reliable
A country surrounded by South Africa and made up of highland villages that aren’t the easiest to access, Lesotho is a tiny country with spectacular views but scarce resources. It has a stable, democratic political system but is economically poor and depends on South Africa as both an employer and buyer. Covering 11,583 square miles, with a population of just over two million, the Sotho people have Bantu ancestors and are incredibly welcoming in a country that is perfect for trekking and hiking. There is a problem with poverty and unemployment here and, other than tourism it is water, diamonds, agriculture and textiles that are the main sources of income. Once a British protectorate, the government continues to work with the country from their South African bases but there isn’t much trade between the countries, which are 5,852 miles apart. Despite this, My Parcel Delivery continues to offer cheap postage to Lesotho.
The largest city and capital of Lesotho is Maseru with a population of around 300,000 on the Lesotho-South Africa border. Other large towns in the country include Mafeteng, Hlotse, Maputsoe, Mohale’s Hoek, Qacha’s Nek, Quthing, Butha-Buthe and Nako. Postcodes in the country are made up of 3-digits, with the capital of Maseru being 100. For goods getting into the country, there is a railway, which connects the capital of Maseru with Bloemfontein-Bethlehem in South Africa, as well as an international airport in Mazenod called Moshoeshoe I. The majority of district centres are connected with the paved road infrastructure and there are other unpaved parts of the highway that link other areas.
