Sani Pass

The spectacular Sani Pass pierces the Drakensberg Mountains through a narrow defile cut by the  mKomazana  River.    Once  it was  nothing  more than  a  vague  footpath  used by Bushman but later became the main route for the early traders, missionaries and travellers. Today the Sani Pass is the only major road into Lesotho from the Southern Berg, with the last 8km being restricted to four wheel drive vehicles.

Although the richness of the flora in the Sani Pass is always ‘lnteresttnq, the wild flowers are at their  most splendid from  November  to  March.    The  road twists  through  a  protected Wilderness area populated by eland.
