I booked 5 September specifically because it was my 40th wedding anniversary and to surprise my wife. What a surprise was it for both of us, The rate we paid for the one night (luckily only one night) does not justify the poor quality of accommodation we received.

Five couples travelled up Sani Pass from Pietermaritzburg and spent Saturday night at Sani Mountain Lodge to celebrate a 50th birthday. We all absolutely loved the adventure and the wonderfully friendly helpful staff and Lodge. Cozy warm fires and warm beds, food was homely and delicious. Loved everything about it, a definite must do!

The Sani Top Backpackers is arguably better than the lodge with its kitchen and the terrace protected from the wind on top of the comfortable rooms. It is a bargain for private rooms. But I was the only real backpacker, all the guests come with their 4WD. You have to stay the night for the sunset and sunrise, and the night sky, and for hiking either South (Hodgson Peak) or North, or both, for the most extensive views.
