Drakensberg & Sani Pass/Lesotho in a Day


A minimum of 2 People are required on this tour.

There are 2  optional activities available on this tour...

1. Hike to view the Ancient Bushmen Paintings and a Horse Ride on the Mountain Range
2. Sani Pass/Lesotho 4x4 tour

Leaving Durban at the crack of dawn around 05h30 am, we head West towards the Southern Drakensberg to begin our adventure as previously mentioned, the tour is broken into two parts and you have a choice of only 'ONE' to do on the day else do the 2 Day Tour ( see Web Page ).

Option One : Hike for Ancient Bushman 'Rock' Painting & Horse Ride

 Arriving in Underberg, a small town in Underberg we will marry up with our local community Hiking guide. Departing from this point we will then head on 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. At the hike we will visit one of many 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 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 in the area where we will enjoy a two hour horse ride. The horse ride is 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.

Depart for Durban around 16h00 pm and arriving around 19h00 pm


NB. Lunch is for your Own Account

What to Bring

. Camera with lots of film, Binoculars which is not a must                                                         

. Swimming costume and towel
· Sweater as the evening air is chilly
· Money for any personal items such as drinks, curios etc

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

  Arriving in Underberg, a small town in the Southern Drakensberg Mountains we stop off to meet up with our local guide for the day. It is also at this point that we will be transferred to a 4x4 vehicle capable of getting up the Sani Pass.

Sani Pass is the gateway from Kwa Zulu Natal into Basutoland and it is important for guests doing this option to have their passports for border control. Entering into Basuto territory we will visit one of the local villages to have a brief but well detailed understanding of Basuto culture. Visit a local homestead, share some culture and taste some of the bread that they make.

Leaving the village we head back to the highest pub in Africa for Lunch. Once lunch is finished we will start the descent from Lesotho back into South Africa arriving back in Underberg around 15h00 pm.

 Depart for Durban around 15h30 pm and arriving around 18h30 pm
