TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

This popular day tour gives an all round taste of Lesotho via the spectacular gateway of the Sani Pass (2874m). Travel up the only road through the Drakensberg cliffs in a 4x4, hearing tales of the pioneering of the route, learn about the natural history of the Drakensberg and see the beautiful wildflowers, wildlife and birds which inhabit the slopes. We drive further into Lesotho, visiting a household in a small shepherd’s village to get a feel for the unique way of life. We visit the shearing shed to view sheep and angora goat shearing (by hand) in season. Ascend Black Mountain (3240m), second highest road pass in Lesotho and picnic with stunning views. We will meet the shepherds who spend the summer months in the highlands tending flocks of sheep and goats and get a sense of the life they lead. We take a short walk to view Thabana Ntlenyana, the highest point in southern Africa at 3482m, then return via a stop at Sani Mountain Lodge for a drink in the highest pub in Africa. Tour price includes a contribution to the Sani Top community which we visit. Our ground-breaking approach to community tourism means that your tour price brings the benefits of tourism to a wide segment of the local community.
