Project Description

2 Day tour of Lesotho.

On our 2 day tour of Lesotho we leave Pietermaritzburg and drive through the rolling hills of KwaZulu Natal on our way to Sani pass. On the way I like to pop in for the best tea and cake in South Africa. The Rose and Quail is in the little hamlet of Himeville and 2 hours into our journey. Perfect timing. After a stretch of the legs we start the real adventure.

It is a 4×4 track up Sani pass leaving South Africa.

We ascend 900 vertical meters in 8km and the views are stunning. Right on top of the escarpment we enter Lesotho so you must have a passport. Nearby is the famous Sani pub. It is the highest pub in Africa so we have to visit and have a beverage.

For now there is a lovely tar road but we love to do a bit of 4x4ring so drive up to Black mountain. This is 3250m above sea level so great views over the mountain kingdom.

We can do this tour of Lesotho in summer or winter because we stay in cozy Molumong lodge.

There is a huge fire place and warm beds so no worries. As this is only a 2 day trip we have to drive back down Sani pass into South Africa. But first we visit the St James church and if you like horses we can even ride a Lesotho 4×4.
