Bikers from the US of A opt to tour Sani Pass in style

James Burnham (left) and Joel Nix (right) visited Underberg on a dark and cold evening, in search of a Sani Pass adventure and a comfortable hotel to rest their weary bodies and feed their appetite. What struck us was their inspiring spirit of adventure.

The spirit of adventure has long been a driving force in human exploration, transcending age and background. This innate desire to explore new horizons, to seek the unknown, and to immerse oneself in the beauty of nature is what led James and Joel on a thrilling expedition to South Africa. With rented motorbikes as their trusty steeds, they embarked on an unforgettable journey through the diverse landscapes, captivating cities, and charming towns, united by a shared yearning to experience the great outdoors from the exhilarating perspective of two wheeled steeds. Having just biked from one of the finest game reserves in South Africa – Hluhluwe, James and Joel were ready for rest. 

And yet they wanted more adventure, so we booked them on our Sani Pass tour for the next day. Relentless spirits for adventure. 

One of the timeless aspects of adventure is its ability to captivate individuals of all ages. This expedition was no exception, as both young and not-so-young adventurers were drawn to the allure of traversing South Africa’s breathtaking countryside on motorbikes. The youthful traveller, with his daring spirit and hunger for adrenaline, sought to push his limits and embrace the thrill of the unknown. Meanwhile, the more seasoned explorer, driven by a lifelong wanderlust, viewed this journey as an opportunity to reignite his passion for discovery and relish in the freedom that comes with being on the open road.

The shared desire to experience the outdoors on their motorbikes brought these two Americans together on this remarkable adventure. South Africa, with its diverse landscapes, provided an ideal playground for their pursuit. The motorbikes became more than mere vehicles; they became conduits connecting the adventurers to the natural world, allowing them to feel the wind on their faces,feel the bracing cold of Winter, and immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of the ever-changing landscapes.

On their return from their tour up the epic Sani Pass and into the chilly air of Lesotho, both James and Joel were full of smiles and chatter about the day. 

Thank you James and Joel. We wish you safe travels for the remainder of your journey in South Africa, and your flight back to the US of A.
