Take a day trip into the Kingdom of Lesotho from Durban, traveling by 4-wheel drive vehicle through the extremely steep Sani Pass after passing through the Natal Midlands and Himeville in a more standard coach. Visit a Sotho village to meet the locals, then head for the Sani Pass Top Chalet for lunch (included) before returning to Durban.

What You Can Expect

Mountain Splendor -The Kingdom of Lesotho

Visit a Sotho Village in Lesotho

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. Time permitting, you’ll have a chance to stop at the 310-foot tall Howick Waterfall on the way back to Durban.

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.
