A Country the Size of Belgium

Most of the “things” that are described as being the size of Belgium are not countries, but there is one country that is almost a perfect match at 99.5% the size of Belgium. That country is Lesotho in southern Africa, and the similarity was noted by an article on Motorsport.com this week.

“The Motul Roof of Africa off-road competition in Lesotho is considered as one of the toughest challenges a motocross rider can face. A three-day endurance race with an international line-up is about to start. 
It’s called ‘the mother of hard enduro’ for a reason. The Roof of Africa is being held in Lesotho, a small country with a similar size of Belgium that is surrounded by South Africa.”
