This tour was for the adventurous. The drive from Durban to the 4x4 vehicle just outside Underberg can be long but our driver kept the conversation moving, captivating and answered so many of our questions! The tour itself was a drive to the South African border, through no mans land with the sharp turns and steep cliffs. Our guide stopped along the way to allow us to take photos, explore and revel at the majestic pass. Up top through the Lesotho border you can explore a few small local shops, before heading to a local village to have some of the most delicious bread and beer I’ve ever tasted. You learn about the culture, challenges and history of the local Zulu people. You then head back towards to border for a lunch stop at the highest pub before making the slow drive back down the Sani pass to the SA border. Each way up and down the Sani pass is about an hour and half, and very bumpy!
Greg, our driver was on time at our accommodation exactly as agreed. We were then greeted with nicely prepared seats. A blanket, something to drink and a menu card were ready on the stand for what we would eat during a short break. He could tell us a lot about the area on the way to the Sani Pass. On the way over the bumpy roads to the Sani Pass, he showed us the most beautiful spots and drove very considerately. At the same time there was something to drink and very tasty little things (muffins, cookies, etc.) baked by his wife himself. When he arrived in Lesotho, he showed us how people there deny your life and always treated them with respect. In the end we sat for a beer in the highest pub in South Africa. We thank Greg for this wonderful day and can only recommend this tour to everyone! All in all a very nice day.
A perfectly organized tour. Pick up at Oak Ridge Guest House perfect. Our guide, Gregory, made us feel from the start that this is our day today. An absolutely exciting climb to the Sani Pass. I can only recommend everyone to 1. do the tour and 2. book the tour as a private tour. We had the Toyota to ourselves. Looking at the Range Rover with 6-8 seats, we were more than happy to have decided on this tour. Everything was fine, including the little things.
I had a guide / driver to myself. He conveyed a lot of knowledge about people, places and nature. I had enough time to look at things everywhere. The day trip was a lot of fun. Again any time.
Awesomeness, very beautiful scenes. Full of history & culture. Moments of magic that are unique to the pass. Loved it
