"Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." - Ralph Waldo Emerson. I left Bloemfontein in search of the great Maletsunyane Falls, in Lesotho. My friends told me I was crazy to drive that far just for a waterfall but after seeing images of this unbelievable place I knew I needed to find it and see it in person! #TrueWanderer #Live2Wander
While driving through Lesotho I noticed that outside certain rural homes large sticks were impaled into the ground with packets tied to them. One of the locals told me this was an indication that homemade brew was sold from these homes. Yellow packets meant that maize was used to create the brew, while white packets meant that potatoes were used. Tempted by one of the friendly locals to try a sample, I opted not to insisting that I don't drink and drive. #TrueCulture
Seeing as though the awesome team at Wrangler were ever so kind to give me two shirts, I thought I'd introduce one of the Basotho locals to #TrueDenim. Moshoeshoe was super stoked with his new shirt!
Maletsunyane Falls, one of the most spectacular sights I've ever seen. It's hard to wrap your head around how nature has formed this near perfect setting. A photo or words do no justice in explaining the powerful presence this waterfall holds as tons of water fall 192m making this the highest single drop waterfall in Africa.
Mielies are one of the staples in Lesotho. The locals ground the corn and turn it into pap-pap porridge. I decided to have mine braai'd on a fire just like back at home. #TrueFoodie
I met Motsamai while exploring the village of Semonkong. He gave me advice on when & where to shoot certain parts of the Maletsunyane Canyon and ofcourse the mighty Maletsunyane Falls, which helped greatly seeing as though one is spoilt for choice in this picturesque part of Lesotho. Ironically his name translates to Traveller in english!
Semonkong, meaning "Place of Smoke", was the village in Lesotho which I ventured to for this competition. I felt that I needed to capture more than just photos to depict the wonderful scenery & friendly people of this place. I hope you enjoy the edit I put together. See below. #truecapture
