Drive inland past Pietermaritzburg to the area of gently pastoral beauty called the Natal Midlands. We pass through grassy plains scattered with villages and lush farmlands where plump cattle and thoroughbred horses graze. Then further through Underberg, a picturesque little village situated in the foothills of the majestic Drakensberg Mountains. Now we set off to Sani Pass, named after the primitive people who lived in the area millennia ago, for a four-wheel drive with hair-raising bends and breathtaking views to the top of the mountain. Lunch is served at the top in the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho some 3 000 m above sea level. We return early afternoon, change vehicles and set off to Durban.
Depart from Johannesburg for an excursion of Pretoria, the country’s administrative capital, and one of the most beautiful cities in South Africa. We visit some historical sites and places of interest. The highlights are the Voortrekker Monument, Kruger House, Church Square, Melrose House and the Union Buildings.
