Durban: Journey along the Epic Sani Pass & Lesotho Tour
Have you packed your passport? You’re heading into the Mountain Kingdom after all. At 3 240 meters above sea level it can get a tad icy so wrap yourself in one of our authentic Basotho Blankets which is yours for the day.
Our first stop is Himeville, at the base of the mountain, where you’ll climb into a rugged 4x4. Time to embark on the steep climb up the scenic and daunting Sani Pass. Get your passport stamped at the border and head into no-mans-land which connects South Africa to Lesotho.
Once you enter into Lesotho your guide will introduce you to a Basotho village before a bucketlist lunch (own cost) at Africa’s highest pub. Time to head down the mountain for your drive back to Durban.
TRAVEL VISA — Travellers are required to check whether they require a travel visa to enter Lesotho. If you require a visa it is your responsibility to acquire the necessary visa prior to the tour. Wild Routes Africa is in no way responsible for any traveller that is refused entry into Lesotho.
