    Sani Pass
    Stop: 7 hours
    9.00 AM With eager anticipation the tour group departs from the starting point and heads up to the highest pass in South Africa, Sani Pass. We travel through Himeville to the World Heritage Site of the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park, following the Mkomazana River up the scenic Sani Valley to the South African Border Post (border formalities) and the Lesotho Border. 11.30 AM After the Lesotho border formalities at the top of Sani Pass, the group makes its way to a fully functional Basotho village to learn more about these humble people. You even get to taste their home-made bread and the local beer. 12.30 PM To reflect on this incredible expedition, our tour now moves to the Highest Pub in Africa where we enjoy a hearty lunch and cold beer. 2.30 PM We make our back down the Sani Pass. 4.00 PM We arrive back in Underberg.

This was an amazingly beautiful experience and we would highly recommend it to anyone. Peter, our driver and guide, was exceptionally knowledgeable, professional, helpful and flexible. He was also an outstanding driver. Emile helped us with the booking and he was very responsive and helpful with understanding the border crossing details both in and out of Lesotho.

Amazing tour to Lesotho via the Sani Pass! My wife and I took this tour in February 2020. We were not disappointed! Great and informative tour guide which taught us about Lesotho and nearby wild life. The tour has stops at a local Lesotho village and the highest pub in Africa for lunch. A great day trip. For those reading other reviews that people should hurry up as the road is getting tarred — do not fret. It will take many many years to fully pave the pass and as of February 2020 very little was done at all. The pass is still extremely off-road and requires an expert driver and top quality car. Do not miss this tour while in Underberg!

Completely blown away by our amazing sani pass tour with Amal. I did quite a bit of research before deciding to do a tour and not venture ourselves. I'm so glad we did, you absolutely need a strong 4x4 to drive this road, but more over, you need an experienced driver. The best part of this tour is not even the exhilarating bumpy ride, but is how much information we learned from our guide. You simply don't know what you don't know, and we learned so much from him. Don't be fooled by other Google reviews of this pass, it's is no where near close to being tarred. It's quite the rough ride, and we were so pleased to do this tour in a small intimate group with a great tour guide! It shouldn't be missed if you're passing through this area for a few days.

The tour was such a exceptional experience. Bucket list item for sure! Peter our driver and guide was wonderful, polite, friendly, knowledgeable and made our ride up the pass really pleasurable, his driving skills are outstanding as well! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a tour up Sani Pass. The snow was really the cherry on top and made it a day that we will remember for a long time to come. Thank you, Peter and Neil at Roof of Africa Tours for a lovely day.

We really lucked out on this trip for two reasons. First of all the weather - we saw a few fluffy clouds on the way up but that was it! When we got to the top it was wall to wall sunshine! Secondly - our choice of tour operator. Roof of Africa tours were excellent throughout. Our driver was Emille who was very safe and very knowledgable, we were entertained and educated. We weren't expecting to be visiting a Lesotho village at the top but that is what happened - dressing up and everything! (home cooked bread highly recommend. Home made beer not so much!). Probably the highlight of our month in South Africa although the safari in Hluhluwe Game Reserve comes VERY close.

What a fantastic experience; we loved every single moment of it Peter, our guide was fantastic and so knowledgeable, it was a treat to have him as our guide.
He made our border crossings so easy and he was exceptionally friendly and helpful.
We are all so happy that we decided to rather take a tour than drive ourselves because things we would have driven straight passed he stopped at and told us about.
I promise that this tour is well worth every single cent, its a must do.

Simply no better way to do this trip than with Roof of Africa Tours. Peter, our guide was so insightful and he enriched our experience. He mastered the gruelling drive up that incredibly tricky pass with care and attention. Peter participated in the experience at the Village ... he was like a 4D history book. Absolutely loved it. Thank you Roof if Africa and especially Peter, our guide. Comfy vehicle, great price, and well worth it. Top Service. 100 Stars!!

Roof of Africa were incredibly efficient and well run. We had to change dates and even times just before our trip, and nothing was too much for them to accommodate. The vehicles were immaculate and both of our drivers were phenomenal. At no point did we feel unsafe or at risk in anyway. If you enjoy birding, it's worth asking for Aldo as his knowledge was outstanding and he really made an effort to find special and rare birds along the way. Thanks to all

Mondli was our tour guide and what a knowledgeable and fantastic guide. We will definitely request him (if we can) the next time we do the trip. He went out of his way to make it comfortable, enjoyable and we learnt so much about the area.
The vehicles are well cared for and clean. We've done this trip with another operator before, but will absolutely book with Roof of Africa Tours going forward. After all, this is not a trip you only do once.
