Highlights of South Africa

Sani Pass

Scroll

Once a mule trail for traders, an escape route for rustlers and challenge for legendary pioneers, the 2,874m Sani Pass is the only driveable route up into the High Berg of the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg mountains and connects Kwa-Zulu Natal to the Kingdom of Lesotho (remember your passport!). Although in the process of being tarred, the hairpin road, rising 1,300m in 8km, is notoriously treacherous and impassable in bad weather and should only be attempted by experienced drivers in a suitable 4×4 vehicle. Apart from the exhilarating drive, rewards include the highest pub in Africa at Sani Top, and views towards Thabana Ntlenyana (3,483m), the highest mountain in Africa south of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, as well as a chance to ski (when conditions allow!).
