Event info

The Lesotho 360 is an annual 1000 km Paramotoring event. As the name suggest the event entails the circumnavigation of the country Lesotho. For the 2018 event there is only an adventure class. In 2019 there will be a race class and it will without a doubt be the most thrilling Powered Paragliding event in South Africa!

The task is simple. Fly around the country of Lesotho with your paramotor without crossing a border during flight or otherwise.

The start and end of the event is in the picturesque town of Clarens. This exciting event is live tracking enabled, so all your friends, family and fans can follow the excitement in real time via the net!

This year’s event is on invitation only, since we are still figuring out if we are very brave or just plain insane! If you think you have what it takes to complete this event, first read the skill set……carefully…… and then phone the organisers for more detail.

We do have satellite SOS emergency devices, so there is a big brother that will come and fetch you if you decide to land where no man has landed before…

The Beauty and landscape is un-paralleled!
