Both countries are landlocked by South Africa. A network of rivers and mountain ranges, all at high altitudes, crisscrosses Lesotho. Often visited on the back of a donkey, as this is the only way to travel to remote villages in the mountains, Lesotho is an incredibly pretty country with rugged terrain.
eSwatini (formerly Swaziland) is one of the last Executive African Monarchs. The country is known for its wilderness reserves and festivities showcasing Swazi culture. Being the smallest country in the southern hemisphere; it is relatively easy to travel around and makes for a good day trip when visiting the Lowveld, just outside the Greater Kruger National Park area.
