        Brilliant morning out👌
        Duma was our fabulous guide who very ably took us to the top. He had extensive knowledge of the birds and sights along the way. After visiting a village, we went to the pub where we enjoyed delicious cappuccinos. From booking to the return , it was pleasure. Can’t complain about a thing!!

        Njabuio great guide
        They are a great tour company. Very accommodating of our 80 year old folks one who uses a walker. Njabuio was our guide and was very informative and patient. The office had food parcels and school stationery parcels to purchase and then we took them and gave them to the people in Lesotho.

        An amazing snow-experience at the highest point in Lesotho.
        We were taken by a very knowledgable tour guide who kept us informed of the history, wildlife and activities of the Basotho people whilst on a leisurely drive that allowed us plenty of time to admire the scenery and take photographs.

        The Great Sani Pass
        The place has great mountainous views, It is better to use off road 4x4 cars when going there, also make sure you have shoes with good grip and have warm clothe the place can be very cold.

        Memories that will last forever
        It was an unforgettable adventure that left us with beautiful memories. We won't mind doing it again to experience the pass during a different season. The trip boasts views of the majestic mountains, and the view from the top is something that one will remember forever. We even got to play in the snow. We also had a delightful experience where we got to meet members of a village in Lesotho and have some homemade bread. Our experienced driver Mbongeni was such delight and shared his knowledge about the area's geography and history. We always felt that we were in good and safe hands. Lana was also very helpful with the booking and advice beforehand.

        Brilliant day out
        Was a bit of a wobbly start- weren't aware of the booking, but that could actually be a TripAdvisor problem, maybe TripAdvisor should look into confirming with client the wat AirBNB do. Once we got started, it was just a thoroughly excellent experience. Marting the guide was so great and had so much knowledge and a great sense of humour. Really just made the day a lot of fun. The trip up the pass is rough but wasn't uncomfortable, and the views are quite literally breathtaking, although that might be the altitude also. Just remember to print your covid stuff. Makes life easier. The stop at Siphiwe to give us some info on Lesotho and the area was a really great time. He is a really knowledgeable and nice man. Doing The Lords work in the area. Stopping at the highest pub for lunch was a treat. Very nice place, friendly staff, interesting and decent food. In general would highly recommend the tour as a whole.

        Perfect Guide, Perfect Day!
        The tour left on time, and it was in a comfortable vehicle with an experienced driver who also has a great sense of humour! The Covid test and border control went by smoothly and the views were breathtaking. The driver was very knowledgeable and had great insight into both South African and Lesotho history! The visit to the little village was good although I was expecting a bit more excitement from the other travellers and host. We managed to buy a little souvenir and then had lunch at the highest pub in Africa. We enjoyed the experience and it’s great value for money. Definitely recommend!

        Unforgettable experience with amazing views!
        I really enjoyed every moment of the Sani Pass Day Tour! Our guide and driver, Martin, was excellent at navigating the tough route up the pass and he was very informative. We stopped plenty of times to admire the spectacular views. The Covid test and crossing of the border was a seamless process. Our lunch at the Highest Pub in Africa was of course also a big highlight. I will definitely recommend doing this tour in order to just sit back and enjoy the scenery, instead of doing a self-drive. Thanks for a great day out Martin! Tip: Take a warm jacket with, as the wind at the top was extremely strong!!

        Sani Pass tour
        What an awesome experience. Passport control was a breeze and it was an eye-opening experience to see how the people in Lesotho live. The visit to the highest pub in Africa is something never to be forgotten. The guide who took us on the tour was well-informed and a superb driver. This is the kind of stuff memories are made of.

        Most fun day of whole holiday
        The Sani Pass is not to be taken lightly, and certainly not if you have back or joint problems. We were picked up by 4x4 vehicles with 9 seats, and set off to conquer the pass! The first bit is on a road, then we hit road works where the pass is being upgraded to make it more passable. In a way that's a pity because the very rough terrain, being shaken from side to side and the squawks of horror at the lack of track we were driving over was the best bit. We were going up very steep, very rough tracks, and at the top we needed passports to get into Lesotho where we had a visit to a local village and lunch at a restaurant. The trip down was even more exciting as we could see the precipitous drops in front of us on the corners. Along the tracks are men whose job is to fill in holes so the vehicles can traverse it. There is no taxi service between one end end of the pass to the other (Lesotho) so the middle bit has to be walked by the locals, carrying the goods bought in the markets. We arrived back at our hotel, battered, bruised and thoroughly invigorated by our day out. Thank you to our driver Frank for getting us up and down safely. He does this daily 6 days a week!

        Sani Pass and Mokhotlong
        WIlson, our driver and tour guide from Sani Pass Tours, was excellent! Very attentive, informative and considerate in spite of the dense cloud on the Sani Pass! The pub is a little more 'up-market' than our previous trip 6 years ago, but again we were made to feel very welcome. The visit to Mohkotlong was very interesting and eye-opening! Thanks again Wilson - good job!!

        We survived the drive!
        Went on the extended trip taking in Mokhotlong. Was a fantastic day. Our driver Wilson was great fun, stopping regularly and giving us plenty of information about the culture and surrounding area. I would highly recommend this trip

        An adventure
        A well organised and informative tour, with a knowlegable and competent driver. We had plenty of opportunities to take photos and enjoyed ourselves.

        Great experience!
        My husband and I loved our day trip up the Sani Pass and into Lesotho. Our guide Wilson was very professional, he would stop the car regularly to enable us to take photos of the breath-taking views, he knew a lot about flowers/nature, and most of all he is an excellent driver! When we arrived in Lesotho, he took us to a village and we sat down to learn about the country and its relationships with South Africa, which was very interesting. We highly recommend this day trip if you are in the Southern Drakensberg region. Thanks a lot, Wilson!

        Shame on you
        The worst day of my life We booked this tour as a celebration of my birthday during our visit to South Africa. I asked the company in advance about the visa requirements at the Lesotho border as I am a holder of UAE passport and they assured me that I don’t need a visa. After 3 hours journey in a bumpy 4x4 trip we arrived at the Lesotho border. We were denied entry into the country because we apparently needed a visa. The driver left me and my family (wife and two children aged 11 and 9) in the middle of the road at the border for 2 hours. This company wants only to make money without a regards to the basic human needs for the tourists. Shame on you treating us like this just for the money! Management never apologized and refused to refund our money

      We had tried the Sani pass the year before and it was a tricky drive even with a decent vehicle and I found that the Diff-Lock needed to come down the steep declines caused a fair bit of wear and tear on my rear tires so I figured I would use the tour company for the next trip up.
      Sani Pass has been sanitized over the last year or so and is much kinder on vehicles and in much better condition but its still quite a challenging drive up and when you're the driver you miss the majestic view on the way. having a professional driver and letting their car take the knocks seemed a much better option and I got to see so much more. an amazing bonus was an arranged stop at one of the Lesotho homesteads where we were welcomed into local lady's home to experience Lesotho culture and then we got to sample the most amazing warm Pot-Bread. I bought another loaf to have back at the hotel that evening. The Tour is reasonably priced considering the amazing experience you enjoy and the fact that you can see so much more and there is no wear and tear on your own car to consider.

      Our driver, Frank Mtshali, was an excellent tour guide and driver! He navigated the hairpin turns and the washed out road with skill! The scenery was beautiful, and the drive is an experience of a lifetime!
