Sani Lodge provides a wide range of accommodation  deep in the majestic Southern Drakensberg Mountains of South Africa, bordering directly onto the World Heritage listed uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park.

Situated at the foot of the Sani Pass, the Gateway to the mountain Kingdom of Lesotho, Sani Lodge is a peaceful country haven with a  laid back atmosphere, where guests can simply kick off their shoes and wholly unwind. You will feel the layers of stress peeling away as you relax and immerse yourself in nature. This place restores your soul and upon departure, you will feel mentally and physically rejuvenated. 

Russell and Simone Suchet started the Lodge in 1992 and are both passionate about the wilderness, mountains and Lesotho. Join Russell for a chat about the 7th edition of his book “A Backpacker’s Guide to Lesotho” over a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of our renowned chocolate cake at the Café on site. Relax at “One of the Best Backpackers away from the big towns in South Africa” ( SA Handbook), breathe in pure mountain air and drink mountain spring water, take a dip in our swimming pool,  soak up sunshine next to invigorating mountain pools only half an hour hike away, retire to the sunny reading nook, enjoy sundowners on our wooden deck verandah facing the awesome mountain range bordering onto Lesotho, socialise around the braai facility, and in winter, curl up in front of a log fire in the cosy common room.

As a 4 star graded Backpackers, our accommodation is simple and affordable, cosy, clean and comfortable. Please note that if you are looking for Hotel room service, porters, private jacuzzi, champagne  on arrival and personal valet, then this is not the place for you.
