The awe-inspiring Sani Pass climbs the face of the escarpment to an altitude of 2874m and into the “Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho”. It is the gateway to the “Roof of Africa”. The scenery is breathtaking and attracts visitors from all over the world. Originally developed as a bridal path in 1913, the pass served as an important link between the Underberg district and the remote settlement of Mokhotlong, in Eastern Lesotho. The first vehicle negotiated the pass in 1948. It is now used for the most part by 4×4 vehicles and has become the highlight of the Southern Drakensberg.
The tour will reveal the history of the pass, geology of the mountains, flora & fauna, and a unique experience with the Basotho people. The highest pub in Africa offers a cold beer & lunch before the descent back to Underberg.

This is not just a drive to Mohotlong to look at a town but a full tour over the Sani Pass. In addition we go to the Makhapung valley and go on a full tour of this living village still untainted and with all the cultures and traditions preserved. This day offers a real insight into the lives of the Basotho nation.
This is a completely unique experience in which a meal, an additional private guide and activities are all included in the price. This is a sustainable tourism project.
The Sani Pass is regarded by some as the most spectacular views in South Africa. Originally a bridal path this has become a ‘bucket list’ experience that is not to be missed. Walls of sandstone, cascading rivers and hair-raising bends are just some of the highlights. The 4×4 vehicles take you through the Barrier of Spears and into the Kingdom of Lesotho. The Highest Pub in Africa welcomes our guests to the roof of the world.
We visit a Basotho village and meet it’s people – a true cultural experience. After lunch at the Sani Top Chalet (the highest pub in Africa) we will take the return journey back to Underberg. A trip you will not forget…
