Sani Pass is located in the western end of the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa, on the road between Underberg and Mokhotlong, Lesotho. It is a route that connects Kwazulu-Natal and Lesotho, and a notoriously dangerous road, which requires the use of a 4×4 vehicle.

This pass lies between the border controls of both countries and is approximately 9km in length and requires experienced driving skills. It has occasional remains of vehicles that did not succeed in navigating its steep gradients and poor traction surfaces, and has a catalogue of frightening stories of failed attempts at ascending the path over the Northern Lesotho Mountains.
Our journey begins in Himeville before we tackle the notorious Sani Pass the next day where we will stay at the Sani Mountain Lodge at the top of the pass. From here we head deep into the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho to the spectacular Katse Dam. We spend two nights here overlooking the dam. You can enjoy a tour of the dam wall as well as a number of other activities on offer from Katse Lodge.
Normally at this time of year we experience some good snowfall in Lesotho which transforms the place into a magical winter wonderland. Accommodation is in lodges so you are well protected from the cold weather outside and the whole family can enjoy this adventure together.
Space is limited to eight vehicles on this trip so get your bookings in early to avoid disappointment.
