Morija is a tiny town in north western Lesotho, about 40 miles south of Maseru. Tim Couzens' novel Murder at Morija tells of the 1920 poisoning of one of Lesotho's first missionaries. It's well worth a read before you visit! Although do note that it is highly unlikely that you will be poisoned on your visit.
