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.
The Sani Pass is regarded by some as one of the most spectacular views in South Africa and is an experience not to be missed. Walls of sandstone, cascading rivers and hair-raising bends are just some of the highlights as the 4×4 vehicle takes you through the Barrier of Spears and into the Kingdom of Lesotho.
