Lesotho Currency

Money

The Lesotho loti (LSL) is the official currency of Lesotho, and is divided into 100 listente. It has the same value as the South African rand, which is accepted as legal currency. Banks and exchange bureaus are found in Maseru and in most main towns.

Most major hotels, shops, restaurants, and travel agencies accept credit cards. Although it is best to check with credit and debit card companies as to their acceptance before leaving home. Travellers cheques can be cashed at banks in Maseru. Local ATMs in Lesotho have the facility to accept international ATM cards but are unreliable.
