First off... BRING YOUR PASSPORT! And if you are scared of heights - don't worry, my aunt was the first person ever to go up and down the pass with her eyes closed tight... however it's not something I advise, the views are stunning, breath taking and amazing. There is an old man that has become something of a legend,... More

What an amazing trip with some friends up the Sani pass. Weather was fine and views great. Driving up the pass in our 4x4 the road was of good quality. Reaching the top was great. A must visit is the highest pub in Africa. We had some drinks and lunch there as some snow started to fall. The fire inside... More

People, please, before to die, go to Sani Pass! Get yourself a guide and a 4X4 vehicle in Underberg and go to see this wonderland. The pass is ...wow...a very narrow and tough road and honestly, I will do it again just with a guide. The journey is beautiful, with amazing spots to take pics! Our guide was terrific, he... More

Really beautiful! It snowed a few days before we were there, so we saw a lot of snow. We had a great guide and made a stop in Lesotho.

Sani pass is a long but doable day trip from Durban but it is better to overnight in the area if you have time. We went up in the snow and although we didn't get to the top as the snow got too thick it was worth it for the amazing views and fun of the snowball fights! They won't... More

We we're lucky that when we went up the pass there was snow at the top. The trip up and the views from the top was breathtakingly beautiful. The skies were clear and we could almost see forever :)

This is the 2nd year that we have walked up the pass. It is a strenuous walk and not for the faint hearted. If you enjoy a good workout then this is for you. We started at the border post at the bottom, walked up to the restaurant in Lesotho. Had some soup and gluwein then came back down again.... More

Went up there again as the wife walked the pass up and down for a charity case. Hope they do not tar this pass as it will loose its character and many visitors. We will be back dedinitely!

We very much enjoyed the Sani Pass tour. Our guide new a lot of stuff and he stopped at places where you really could take nice photographs. The pub on top is obviously the highlight
