Yesterday we travelled with the Sani Pass Tours up the rocky rough road of the Sani Pass. The drive was hair-raising at times but the view of the snow-covered Twelve Apostles was breathtaking. Our driver/guide, Martin, was an expert at handling the road and took...More

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.

Don't forget your passport. Quite a difficult walk but manageable with rest stops. Most beautiful in winter. See frozen streams and misty conditions when u get to the top. Lovely feel when snow hits your face. Driving up with 4x4 is fun but walking is...More

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
