  • About 8 hours


Join us for a full day adventure up the Sani Pass into Lesotho in a 4X4 guided vehicle! Climb the world famous Sani Pass to 2874 metres above sea level, stopping for lunch at the Highest Pub in Africa and then onto visiting a living Basotho Village in Skeering, Lesotho.


We meet at our office in the Trout Walk Centre at 09.00 am, alternatively we can pick you up from your B&B or Hotel.

The Tour departs at 09.30 am and takes approximately 2.5 hours to reach the summit, climbing a grand 2874 metres above sea level! Stopping at breathtaking view sites along the Sani Pass and the two border posts i.e. The South African Border Control and Lesotho Border Control.

Once at the Top of the Sani Pass - we enjoy lunch at the highest pub in Africa - The Sani Mountain Lodge. Lunch varies from R65 - R145 per person depending on your preference from the menu. (currently closed as per 01/03/2021)

After lunch the tour continues into a living Basotho village, where our experienced mountain guide will interest you on Lesotho and its people - the hardy mountainous Basotho folk. Traditional beer and homemade bread offered on request.

We wind down the Sani Pass after this cultural experience and arrive back in Underberg between 16h00- 16h30 depending on the wildlife spotted along the way.

We thought about to make the tour ourselfs but decided to do the tour with Sani Pass Tour ls and it was the right decision...

We had a very competent guide and driver who was very experienced and helpful.

It was a lovely trip and learned a lot about the area and the people living there.

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!

The vibe was amazing and the drivers are awesome and the service was great. I would highly recommend them

Though I was uncertain due to poor weather, this was a great way to spend even a cold, cloudy, wet day. Very atmospheric drive into the clouds. And the weather on top of the pass was actually sunny.

Our guide, Sifiso, was a lot of fun. And I have to give a special thanks to him and the SPT team for helping me retrieve some last property from my previous accommodation!!

Brilliant tour. Guide couldn't have been more accommodating, stopping to let us take photos and pointing out points of interest and wildlife. Excellent stop in a Lesotho village and time at the sani top chalet, highest pub in Africa!
