Sani Pass is a beautiful setting. The beauty and mountains are exceptional. Enjoyed seeing the village life and the stuff they make. Loved observing the nomadic life in the villages. Enjoyed the highest pub in Africa.

The drive up to Sani Pass takes 2.5 hours and can only be done in a 4x4. The views are spectacular and it is certainly worth doing. We passed shepherds herding their sheep down from Lesotho to the SA border. Wind chill at the top...More

Prepare for a really long drive, road conditions can become treacherous especially if its been raining or snowing and visibility is a few meters tops. 4x4 is highly recommended although some foolhardly souls chance it and get lucky most of the time. If you have...More

The drive there is long on relatively bad roads. Four wheel drive, however is only needed for the last 500m of the trip. There are the border posts to go through, these are an irritation. The drive up is magnificent and the scenery at the...More
