This Sani Pass tour from Durban allows you to experience all that a standard Sani Pass tour offers, all in one day. Includes return transfer between Durban and Underberg.
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 as our 4×4 vehicle takes you through the Barrier of Spears and into the Kingdom of Lesotho.
We visit a living Basotho village and meet it’s people – a true cultural experience.
The Highest Pub in Africa welcomes our guests to a hearty lunch and refreshments before we take the journey back down the pass to Underberg and your transfer back to Durban.
