We didn't stay at the lodge but had lunch there, which was ok. This review is about the drive to get there - unbelievable! The so called road was essentially a river bed and a true switchback with huge drops on one side and shear cliffs on the other. 4x4 only although there was one idiot in a rear wheel drive that got stuck up and down. Well worth the bumps for the scenery and wild life.

+Beautiful view +good food (if buffet, a la carte is cheap) -Staff woke me up at 7 am to clean the room -the guy who fill up the heating entered our room without knocking -they charged me in advance 1100 Zar for a horse ride (official price at the reception 550ZAR) The lunch packet was terrible but costed 300 Zar -Almost all staff members are unfriendly and they show you that you are disturbing them -room was very cold, even when they light the fire -store was always closed I compare to the next lodge (masoba-soba lodge) which is almost as good as the sani mountain lodge. They charge only ⅓ for the room

For all the hype about the highest pub in Africa it's not worth it. Plus a Swiss guy told us there's a pub at Kilimanjaro now. The ride up the pass was hard, average meal about R110 and R50 for a Maluti beer. Cappuccino R30. Our waiter Joseph was friendly but the place was crowded and noisy. There's cell signal there.

Beer in hand, and looking down into the valley. A worthwile reward for driving up the Sani Pass. Lunch time quite a rush with the tour vehicles coming up. Wait an hour and then enjoy a meal. Worth to stop there and enjoy. Spend time to walk around and see what nature is up there.

Our party of 11 enjoyed a drink and toasted sandwich after our 4x4 trek up the Sani Pass. The restaurant boasts the title of the highest pub in Africa, and has gorgeous view over the pass. It was a perfect place to stop for a break before heading on our journey. We didn't stay over so cannot comment on the rooms.
