As we enjoy riding our off road motorbike this pass is a must for the adventurous. Whether you are into 4 x4, cycling or motor biking it most definitely will be an unforgettable trip. Once you are at the peak you can have a nice drink at the cafeteria.

You have to like mountains. If you're a beach person, then the Sani pass probably won't be as spectacular to you. I took a 4x4 up the pass, which takes about 2 hours. The terrain is incredibly rough, but there are several viewpoints at which to stop for magnificent views of your surroundings. I happened to go during a snowstorm,... More

Blue sky and a perfect day to drive the Sani Pass road to Lesotho. Beautiful scenarios and a nice cup of Cappuccino at the top make you feel like in heaven.

We didn't quite expect what to see and we were so lucky that we signed up for this optional tour to Sani Pass. The scenery is just breathtaking. It is a must-do must-see trip to Sani Pass.

Twice we have wanted to go to Sani Pass and had trouble with our 4x4. This was probably an omen at the time. A year later we went, and the weather was perfect we could not ask for a better day. We enjoyed the drive up and down the pass and took many photos. On reaching the top the views... More

Doing the Sani Pass trip to the highest Pub in Africa was on the bucket list, (not anymore). Great views from the road and at the top.

Nice 4x4 trip. Pity they want to tar the pass. Will be bad for local business. Why destroy a nice trip with tar.
