Sani Pass

Sani Top is the highest point at 2874 metres above sea level located at Lesotho border post in the district of Mokhotlong. The road descends the torturous meandering of the Sani pass.

It traverses through the mountain plateau down the Drakensberg mountains and into the South African province of Kwa-Zulu Natal. The spine-tingling pioneering of this route was previously travelled by Mokhotlong Motor Transport and currently is being used by adventure loving motorists.

The South African border post is 8.km from the top of the pass and Sani Lodge is a further 16k on the right. The town of Underberg is a further 19km along. The Sani Top used to be the opening to Lesotho’s Roof of Africa route that connects the breathtaking scenery of the Drakensberg with the attractions of Northern Lesotho, as well as South Africa’s Golden Gate National Park via Caledonspoort or the Monontša Pass.
