Major Adventures have been taking tours up Sani Pass for the past 20 years and collectively have more than 40 years of experience in the industry. The Sani Pass is regarded by some as the most spectacular views in South Africa. Originally a bridal path this has become a ‘bucket list’ experience that is not to be missed. Walls of sandstone, cascading rivers and hair-raising bends are just some of the highlights. 4x4 vehicles take you into the Barrier of Spears and into the Kingdom of Lesotho where we visit the Highest Pub in Africa . We have taken more than 200 000 people safely up the pass and have guides with up to 25 years’ experience. We our proud of having the highest safety standards in the area. Our extended tour includes a visit to an exclusive remote village to see authentic Basotho culture, a traditional healer and unique dancing with a professional guide. We also offer overnight stays in Lesotho. The very basic core of a man’s spirit is his passion for adventure.

We do collect from Bushmans Nek Resort, but do charge extra for this service as it is about 35kms from our office. Please email me and we can discuss your Sani Pass Day Trip further
