F.A.Q.

When is the Sani Pass going to be tarred?   

There is no road construction after the South African border post and the area is still natural and wild.  There have not yet been any plans passed at this stage for tarring further up the pass

Do I need a Passport?

Yes you need a valid passport.  A copy will not be accepted.  As you are going into another country you will not  be allowed to enter or exit the border post without your passport.

What will the weather be like and when does it snow?

It is impossible to predict the weather conditions.  However the daily tours run everyday 365 days a year  except on the rare occasion the pass is closed due to snow or rain. Although the temperatures can be cold on the pass it is most often sunny with blue skies.  Snow does occur during winter but there is no regular pattern so it is recommended to consult reputable weather report.
