Full Day Sani Pass and Lesotho Tour



Sani Pass Tour (Departure 6am)
Experience the enchanting Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho, nestled atop the Southern Drakensberg Mountains. The adventure begins in Underberg, a village at the base of the Sani Pass, just a 2.5-hour drive from Durban. Join the Sani Pass Day Tour for a thrilling journey up this zigzagging mountain pass, starting at 1544 meters and ascending 1332 vertical meters to an elevation of 2876 meters. The pass features steep gravel slopes, with gradients as steep as 1:3, making it a challenging drive, especially in winter conditions.

The tour offers breathtaking viewpoints along the way, with stops at South African and Lesotho border control posts, so please ensure you have a valid passport with you for this adventure. At the summit, you can enjoy lunch (at your own cost) at the Highest Pub in Africa, the Sani Mountain Lodge. Afterward, visit a Basotho village or the Sani Top Church to engage with the local community and capture memories.

Throughout the tour, your experienced guide shares captivating stories about Lesotho and its resilient Basotho people. You’ll also learn about the Basotho Pony, a vital part of local life with a rich historical background. Traditional beer and homemade bread can add local flavour to your experience.

As the day winds down, you’ll descend the Sani Pass and return to Underberg, usually between 16:00 and 16:30. This adventure combines cultural exploration, natural wonders, and unforgettable memories in the heart of Lesotho.
