We travel through to Underberg where we transfer into a 4×4 vehicle for a trip up the famous Sani Pass to the top of the Drakensberg and into Lesotho where we meet these mountain people living in a very harsh land. We will visit the Sani top chalet which is one of the most isolated pubs in Africa. It is certainly the highest. The area is renowned for its incredible scenery, flora and birdlife. This is the home of the eland, the largest antelope in Africa, duikers, baboons and the rare bearded vulture. Passports are essential for entry into Lesotho, and jerseys, jeans and binoculars are a must.

The mountain kingdom of Lesotho is out-of-this world for its sheer mountain beauty. Combine that with its unique culture where the people have combined a 21st approach to certain day-to-day activities whilst holding onto their culturally unique way-of-life and it blends into an amazing experience. Our guests are often visiting Lesotho whilst on holiday in South Africa. We have perfected a 3-day tour which incorporates many of the top things to do in Lesotho, despite being on a time budget. Of course, Lesotho has even more amazing things to do and see, but we feel that this tour has become a favourite because it packs so much into just 3 days of overland in Lesotho! Sani Pass, Lesotho Cultural Immersion, Drakensberg Bushmen Paintings, Dinosaur Footprints, Modern-day Cave Dwellers and Semonkong.

San Rock Art Tour From Underberg

San Rock Art Tour From Underberg

This hike gives you a first-hand experience of the natural wilderness of the Drakensberg viewed through a glimpse into the lives of the now-vanished San people, the first people of southern Africa. The San or Bushman people occupied the Drakensberg for at least 35 000 years, but vanished by the end of the 19th century. Your hike takes you to one of the finest rock art sites in the Drakensberg. Your deeply-experienced naturalist guide, Aldo Berruti, will interpret the natural environment and provide insight into the lives and art of the San people.The hike is 12-13 km in length with an ascent of 400m and requires good hiking fitness. The rock paintings in the Drakensberg are hidden gems waiting to be discovered and enjoyed. Discovering these paintings with the help of a guide is a truly rewarding feeling. Rock art experts feel strongly that these paintings are of the world’s most sophisticated art pieces. However, you need not be a fan of art to appreciate these paintings.
