If you are in Durban don't miss this tour, its absolutely a must with excellent scenery and great experience going up(and down) Sani Pass. Our guide was very nice with great knowledge and we were very lucky with the weather, great views all the way
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.
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.
Incredible experience. Must go if you travel to South Africa.
The trip is not for the fainthearted as it involves a 4 wheel drive trip up a steep mountain track, but it is well worth it for the experience at the end.
Thoroughly enjoyed our Lesotho experience.
We had a competant 4wd driver and guide and residents at the village didn't mind us seeing their huts and taking photos. Would highly recommend trip

The drive up Sani Pass was beautiful!! We rode but the pass is a Land Rover and it was a lot of fun, going down was a little sketchy in parts due to the clouds that rolled in but I felt completely safe with our driver. The driver was really nice and funny so it made the drive entertaining. We visited a small Lesotho village, I suggest eating the bread! It was very tasty. We ate lunch at the higest pub in Africa and it would have had a beautiful view if it wasn't so cloudy. I suggest this tour if you want to get out of the city and see some beautiful scenery.
Worth doing once just because the place is so different than most places I've been. It is a long time in the van just getting back and forth from Durban. The road up into Lesotho is an experience in itself. Once in the country, it is pretty basic and you are done, off to the long road back home.
