Standard Sani Pass Tour
Departure from Sani Lodge (9 am)
We meet in near reception ten minutes prior to departure for a quick briefing and introduction to your guide.
Travel up the Sani Pass
Travel up the only road through the Drakensberg cliffs in a 4×4 whilst hearing tales of the pioneering of the rout. You will also learn about the natural history of the Drakensberg and see the beautiful wildflowers, wildlife and birds which inhabit the slopes.
Venture into the Lesotho Highlands
We drive further into Lesotho, visiting a household in a small shepherd’s village to get a feel for the unique way of life. We visit the shearing shed to view sheep and angora goat shearing (by hand) in season.
Ascend Black Mountain (3240m)
Ascend Black Mountain (3240m), second highest road pass in Lesotho and picnic with stunning views. We will meet the shepherds who spend the summer months in the highlands tending flocks of sheep and goats and get a sense of the life they lead. We take a short walk to view Thabana Ntlenyana, the highest point in southern Africa at 3482m.
We will then return via a stop at Sani Mountain Lodge for a drink in the highest pub in Africa. We aim to have you back at Sani Lodge Backpackers between 5 and 5:30 pm.
