Our Sani Pass trip included lunch and drinks here. The food (I had the beef burger) was very good, as was the choice of drinks available. Staff were very friendly, and the view from the top breathtaking!
We stayed one night in the backpacker accommodation at Sani Mt Lodge. We felt ripped off - the place is pricy (same price you would pay for a self catering cottage in SA) for a very uncomfortable and dingy room. The lock system is such that someone can lock you in from the outside and the beds are old and very creaky. The showers are cold (despite a gas heater) and leaks extensively all over the show. The camping area outside is non-existent, it's a dirt area with building rubble. The place has many obscure rules like no picnics allowed in the lodge area (only food bought from them is allowed) which is crazy when staying for a while but even just one night. The lodge effectively hogs the whole line along the mountains so not allowing people to eat their own food there is just a…
We went up Sani Pass as a day trip, intending to stop at Sani Mountain Lodge for lunch. The road up is very bad, Rocky and steep. Don't attempt the road if you do not have a 4x4, particularly in wet conditions. If you don't have a 4x4, there are mony tours that go up the pass. The view at the top was spectacular, with the whole Sani Valley visible in all its splendor. The bar at the Lodge was full, but we were accommodated on couches overlooking the lovely view. The service was good and the waiters were friendly. All of the meals that we got were fantastic, a vegetable soup with homemade bread and mutton stew with rice. Well worth the visit!
Keep in mind that if you are not able to reach the lodge due to terrible weather conditions and destroyed roads they will charge you 100%. They put their rules above your healthy. We never ever had such an experiance in our adventure travels across the world before.
Another trip to this amazing location was well worth the time and effort to get there. this is a must see place in your life time. this time was different as we had food from a menu but the food was still tasty and very well prepared.
