The Senate of Lesotho is the upper chamber of the country's bicameral Parliament.

The Senate is made up of 22 hereditary Principal Chiefs and 11 Senators nominated by the King on the advice of the Council of State. The majority of the Principal Chiefs are descendants of the Founder of the Basotho nation, Morena Moshoeshoe I and descendants of Moshoeshoe’s great allies the Chief of Makhoakhoa, the Chief of the Bataung and Chief of the Batlokoa. The nominated Senators have usually been drawn from a wide spectrum of experienced politicians, distinguished academics and citizens who have made significant contributions to the life of the nation. Several ministers of government have, over the years, been appointed from among the ranks of these eleven nominated Senators. The heir to the throne is usually installed as one of the Principal Chiefs “the Principal Chief of Matsieng” on coming of age until he succeeds to the throne.
