The Sani Pass tour is certainly an adventure day out! Travel up the mountain pass with 4 x 4 vehicles, awe at the views and on a clear day one can see up to 250km!
Drive inland past Pietermaritzburg to the area of gently pastoral beauty, also called the Natal Midlands. We travel through grassy plains scattered with Zulu villages and lush farmlands where plump cattle and thoroughbred horses graze.
Traverse through Underberg, a picturesque little village situated in the foothills of the majestic Drakensberg Mountains. At Himeville you change vehicles and set off in a 4 wheel drive minibus for the drive up Sani Pass, named after the primitive people who lived in the area millennia ago. The ascend up Sani is steep at places with hair-raising bends. The driver talk about the geography and also stop frequently for photo opportunities of the breathtaking views. Afterwards, arrive at the top of Sani Pass into the kingdom of Lesotho. You visit the locals and they may invite you into their house, which often result into tasting locally baked snacks or bread!
Lunch is served at the top in the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho some 3 000 metres above sea level. Afterwards, we descend down the mountain via Sani again, change vehicles and set off to Durban.
