Sani Pass (T5)

A route full of adventure, the initially tarred road, leads you beyond the Sani Pass Hotel now on an increasingly more rugged gravel surface to the South African border Post. Here you will have to check out with your passport (no exceptions and visa regulation might require you to organize such for entry into Lesotho) before you engage all wheel drive (4X4 is compulsory!) to make it up the famous Pass, the only access Road to Lesotho in KwaZulu Natal. Take your time and enjoy the scenery! You might consider saving your own equipment and your passengers mental health by using one of our capable and knowledgeable Tour Operators to take you on the trip. There are very nice accommodation options on this route as well as on top of the mountain in Lesotho at about 3000m altitude.
