The Sani Pass is one continuous long and winding drive up to the Highest Pub in Africa, best handled by experienced 4WD tour/guide. Not even sure now we can drive up without a licence nowadays. Later I find out that there is an annual running...More

You will not regret this scenic trip, a 4x4 is a must to take on the pass. The locals are really friendly , the food at the top of the pass is fairly priced.
