Sani Pass Tours has been around since 1955 and was founded by David Alexander who wanted to make the Sani Pass accessible with 4WD vehicles so that a larger audience could enjoy the fantastic views en route and at the top. The Sani Pass Tours team has experienced guides who go daily to the Sani Pass and know the area well. They use excellently maintained vehicles with as much comfort as possible for the clients, as it is sometimes a very bumpy path that takes you to the top. You travel in small groups so that a lot of personal attention can be given. You will learn more about the history of this mountain pass, the birds, animals and plants that you can encounter here and the Basotho people.

You will leave around 9:30 am for the 2.5 hour trip to the top at 2874 meters above sea level. Along the way you will of course stop at beautiful lookout points and at the border posts of South Africa and the kingdom of Lesotho (don’t forget your passport!)
When the top is reached, it’s time to have lunch at Africa’s highest pub: The Sani Top Chalet. Lunch is for your own account and the costs are around R150 per person.
Please note: bring your passport and clothing for all weather conditions. Even though it is nice and warm at the foot of the mountain, it can cool down considerably at the top. There may be snow in the winter months. Children under 2 years of age can join for free and have to sit on their parents’ lap. Children from 2 to 15 years old receive a discount and from 15 years the price for adults is charged. Please note: are you traveling with children under the age of 18? Take the birth certificate with you! Read more about border crossings here.
