&mdash[edit]

Uh, do "-" really need to be changed to &mdash ? It seems like a lot of effort that could be directed elsewhere... (WT-en) Majnoona


Moving some stuff to Maseru[edit]

Ive noticed how alot of the stuff on here in the buy and eat sections are solely about Maseru, so I've decided to move them to the Maseru page.

Regions[edit]

I have removed the regions section because there is absolutely nothing to do outside the main towns of each region, and the pages would be almost entirely pointless... they would just repeat all the information in each city page.

Also, the regions are more infact administrative districts rather than culturally independant regions.

"Get around/By car"[edit]

What does "in a saloon" mean in this sentence?

"For the visitor, the only unsealed road you are likely to use is the last 20km to Malealea, which is easy in a saloon."

Is the implication that this road is so easy to drive that you could drive it drunk? Is this some local slang? Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:08, 29 March 2015 (UTC)[reply]

I was wondering about the same thing, it's definitely not local slang Refiloehape (talk) 08:45, 14 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Saloon is UK English for sedan. ϒpsilon (talk) 09:29, 14 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Sleep listings[edit]

There should be no specific sleep listings at the country level. I've moved these here, in case they are of use in city articles:

  • Semonkong Lodge situated on the Maletsunyane river and just one hour's walk from Maletsunyane Falls, offers accommodations, good food, horse treks, abseiling at the Falls.
  • Malealea has a lodge and pony trekking centre which offers good accommodation, foot or horse treks and 4x4 excursions.
  • Afriski. Stay in an imported alpine ski lodge.
