Food and accommodation were excellent.. The country side was like being in a different world altogether. A good rest from the demands of city life.

Definitely worth it. From the thrill of driving across the border, through Lesotho, across the passes to afriski. Enjoy every moment, you just have to be very fit.

You can make it in a 2x4 comfortably as long as there is no snow on road. Check the Afriski website for road condition updates or call their reception directly and they'll help

The main slope is only at 200m at the moment but the slope is being expanded but without natural snow fall it is taking longer than last year. Still we had a great time this last week.
