The road up Sani is still the ultimate challenge and well worth it The food is good and wholesome and the pub is an icon. Do try their homemade soup with homemade bread. Do take warm clothes even in summer.

A place for birders to view the Drakensberg Rock Jumper. The road is rugged and a 4x4 essential. The views are breath taking. Throw in a frozen waterfall for more atmosphere. Take your time. The bar at the top also has an awe inspiring view...More

This is a must do for all nature enthusiasts and outdoor lovers. The scenery is magnificent with many photo opportunities. The ice waterfall is especially an interesting place to stop. Service at both border posts are effective and friendly.
