Departure Time

6:30 AM
Get an early start, picked up at your central Durban hotel, and begin the drive toward the Kingdom of Lesotho, an independent country completely surrounded by South Africa. Travel through the Natal Midlands, admiring the scenery, and stop in the town of Himeville, where you’ll transfer to a 4-wheel drive vehicle.

The next part of the journey involves traveling up the incredibly steep Sani Pass, only possible with 4-wheel drive. When you reach the top, go through passport control at the border—this is another country, after all—and then you’re in Lesotho.

Visit a Sotho village, meeting locals and taking in the mountaintop views, before continuing on to lunch at the Sani Pass Top Chalet (included) with still more breathtaking views. After lunch, travel back down the Sani Pass and back to Durban.

Please note: The 4-wheel drive vehicle departs from Underberg.

    Well organised trip to Lesotho

    We booked with a transfer from Durban. Transfer was prompt and friendly. It was a massive day, pick up at 6am and return around 6pm. But well worth it to get to see the magnificent country of Lesotho. Our transfer driver, Wendy and tour guide from Underberg, Roger were both so knowledgeable and provided high quality service. I would highly recommend this day trip to everyone!

    Sani Pass was amazing. The trip from Durban was a bit long but our driver Frank was great. The Cultural piece of this in Lesotho felt a bit forced in a seemingly staged town, but all in all not bad. Got to learn a bit of the history of the region which was good.
