Although probably something that the normal 4x4 enthusiast will foam at the mouth at, my last trip up the pass was really not enjoyable. The road was really bad, most of the topsoil washed away and roadworks a real pain the butt..!! Luckily my old...More

The drive up to the top of Sani Pass from South Africa is along a gravel road on "No Mans Land" between South Africa and Lesotho. Not sure who controls this 8 Kilometer stretch, but it was a big worry for anybody. There is a...More
