“Hiking Up Sani Pass”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Hiked up Sani Pass with 22 Friends from the South African Border post to the Lesotho Border poS and stayed at the Backpackers accommodation before hiking back the next day. The almost 10 km walk up is not easy and high fitness level is required. Experienced wind speed of 75kms/h about 2 Kms from the top and experienced snowfall as we walked down. Visited Sani Pass previously in the comfort of a 4 x 4 vehicle but this was the first time I hiked. Great Experience and will do it again perhaps in the Summer

“Sani Tours”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

it seems that we had the same very old Land Rover that Mr G had from the tour arranged by Sani Lodge; it didn't make it up on the 21st March until 2 of us got out and joined another tour for the rest of the ascent. The tour was curtailed (due also to a late start) to a brief drive across Lesotho, returning before 4.00, not 5.00pm. Recommend that you clarify what vintage of vehicle will be used if you choose to use this tour operator.

“do NOT take the tour with the Drakensberg Adventure Sani Lodge”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Really bad experience with a very old land rover, which was obviously not going to make it. We were stranded in the no-mans land for almost 3 hours, waiting for a mechanic who eventually arrived. No help from the organiser whatsoever. The organiser refused any type of compensation, had to beg even for an apology. Alledgedly we might get some sort of compensation...hard to believe, when the list of compaints on the reception table was rather big. We left an hour later than planned, in order to fill in the last 2 seats in the above-mentioned decrepite truck.
