What You Can Expect

Mountain Splendor -The Kingdom of Lesotho

Visit a Sotho Village in Lesotho

You will make an early start, meandering through the rolling green hills of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands and on to the little town of Himeville. Here you board a four wheel drive vehicle, the only means by which to tackle the steep Sani Pass. At the top lies a remote border post - passports are essential - and beyond that, the Kingdom of Lesotho.

You will visit a traditional Sotho village and then enjoy lunch at the Sani Top Chalet, which has incredible views of the pass, before making our way back down the mountain.

Please note: The four wheel drive vehicle will depart from Underberg. And a visit to magnificent Howick Waterfall will be included on the return journey (time permitting).

As a keen 4WD driver in Australia, I appreciated the different scenery and enjoyed this unique look at an unusual mountain pass and the people who live there. Most enjoyable and having been to the highest pub in Africa rounded off a very good trip

Highly recommended. This is a great opportunity to learn about natives, other than Zulus, and to visit their homes.

This was a great trip it does take 12-14 hours and the road is rough,but the scenery is wonderful you feel like you have been transported to another time when you reach Lesotho.

One of the most interesting travel experiences of our lives! - opened our eyes to how the shepherd tribes of Lesotho live. The travel up to almost 3000m is over beautiful mountainours landscape, many photo opportunities. The guide was very well informed and friendly.

I highly recommend this day trip from Durban, it's not as scary as you might read elsewhere and get in before they tar the Sani Pass. The Viator staff I dealt with via email were very helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2010

Fantastic trip. The journey up was great and the guide really good. And at the top in Lesotho was superb too. Well worth doing if you're ever staying in Durban.
