Maseru - Post Report Question and Answers

What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

Pretty good most of the time. Especially if you can get out of the city. - Aug 2020

Good, clean air! - May 2016

Good, except terrible in the coldest winter months because people burn anything (trash, animal dung, etc.) to generate heat. Lots of particulate matter in the air. It's very possible our infant developed asthma from living there. Controlled field burning is also an established practice in parts of Lesotho and neighboring South Africa. - Aug 2015

Air quality is good with low pollution. However, in August-September, before the rains start, it can be very dry and dusty and people with allergies or asthma sometimes report difficulty then. - Jun 2010
