Full description
Enjoy the convenience of being picked up from your hotel in Durban. From there you’ll drive to the Sani Pass and then switch to a 4-wheel-drive vehicle.   You will then begin your ascent on the Sani Pass, a rugged mountain road which connects South Africa to the landlocked nation of Lesotho. Travel up the road, and ascend 1332 vertical meters, reaching a final elevation of 2876 meters. Get your adrenaline pumping as your skilled driver navigates the hairpin turns. Admire the scenic landscape which surrounds the Pass. Learn about the geography and natural life of the area from your knowledgeable guide.  Once you reach the top, visit a Sotho village hidden away in the mountains. Stop in for lunch at Africa’s highest pub. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Drakensberg. After enjoying some time at the top, it’s time to make your way down. Enjoy your second round with this all-natural roller coaster that is the Sani Pass.
