Lesotho via Sani pass

Lesotho via Sani pass is something not to be missed and best of all it can be done in just 1 day. Also Sani Pass is the only road access point to Lesotho from Kwa-Zulu Natal. Here we pass through the international border between South Africa and Lesotho so you must have a passport. We will be leaving from our home in Pietermaritzburg so can pick you up in Durban or Pietermaritzburg. You can also meet us in Underberg.

Once through the South African border at the bottom of the pass we rise steadily from 1600m to the top of Sani pass at 2873m above sea level in just 8km of dirt road. You can see and feel the climate changing. Most of Lesotho is above 2500m which is above the tree line. Lesotho really is a wild and mountainous place. Once in Lesotho we can visit a local homestead. First of all is a sample of lovely home made Basotho bread. While there we can also try out some rather different home brew.

After visiting with the locals we drive up to the Black Mountain which at 3250m above sea level has stunning views to offer. Here we enjoy an amazing lunch with a most spectacular view over Lesotho. Then on our way back down we stop in for a drink in the highest pub in Africa.
