Full description
You will meet at your guide's office at the Trout Walk Centre at 9:00AM. Alternatively, you can choose to be picked up from your nearby accommodation. The tour will depart at 9:30AM in a 4X4 vehicle, as accompanied by your guide.

From there it will take approximately 2.5 hours to reach the summit, as you travel approximately 16 kilometers to the South African Border Post, and then a further 8 kilometers up the Sani Pass to reach the Lesotho Border Post. This will see you climbing a grand total of 2,874 meters above sea level.

Your guides will stop at breathtaking view sites along the Sani Pass, as well as the two border posts (the South African Border Control and the Lesotho Border Control). Once at the top of the Sani Pass, you will enjoy lunch at the "highest pub in Africa", the Sani Mountain Lodge.

Following lunch, your tour continues a further 7 kilometers into Lesotho to Skeering, a living Basotho village where your experienced mountain guide will provide information to you on both Lesotho and its people. They will also educate you all about the hardy mountainous Basotho folk, and you can choose to enjoy a traditional beer and homemade bread if so desired. You will then wind down the Sani Pass following this cultural experience, before arriving back in Underberg between 4:00PM- 4:30PM (depending on the wildlife spotted along the way).
