2 Day Drakensberg & Sani Pass/Lesotho Adventure

2 Day Drakensberg & Sani Pass/Lesotho Adventure

 Day One : Hike for Bushman Paiting & Horse Ride

 Depart from Durban around 05h30am and head to a small town called Underberg where we will marry up with our local community Hiking Guide. Departing from this point we will then head onto a gravel road to the hiking area. The hike is an average walk with a reasonable degree of fitness and does allow for slow walkers to keep a good pace. We will visit one of the ancient historical Bushmen Rock Painting sites to view these ancient artwork of these early day hunter-gatherers. The guide will show and illustrate how the paintings refer to hunting methods, family life and ritual tradition that have occurred centuries ago. Some pristine little waterfalls and just the sheer tranquility of being one with Nature will touch you. Guests are advised to have a reasonable supply of water.

Lunch back at Underberg.

We then move on to a Working Horse Ranch nearby where we will enjoy an early afternoon horse ride for two hours. An opportunity to get your natural spiritual senses into overdrive as you enjoy the Mountain Range on Horseback which is awesome, The chance to spot antelope on the mountainside or maybe a small Duiker {antelope} in the forest. Majestic views are all around and the pace is great for many photographic opportunities.

Freshen up, enjoy your Dinner and accommodation at the Horse Ranch/Hostel

 Day Two : Sani Pass/Lesotho ( Passport a MUST )

 An early Breakfast and then depart to Underberg where you will be transferred to a 4x4 vehicle to take you up to Sani Pass/Lesotho.

Sani Pass is the gateway from KwaZulu Natal into Basutoland and it is important for guests to carry their "PASSPORTS" for Border Control. Entering into Basuto territory we will visit one of the local villages to have a brief understanding of the Basuto culture and taste some of the bread that the homestead make.

Leaving the Village we head back to Sani Pass to the 'Highest Pub in Africa' for Lunch. After Lunch we will start the descent from Lesotho back into South Africa arriving at Underberg around 15h00pm
