Drakensberg mountains Tour(Sani Pass)
This is a beautiful day out in the Drakensberg mountains with a border pass into Lesotho (via Sani Pass), a land locked country within South Africa. It is on average the highest country in the world and is a Kingdom which got its independence in 1968 from South Africa.
In the Drakensberg mountains the land is very rugged and the route up Sani pass into Lesotho is steep but more than worth the experience and only 4×4 vehicles are permitted to drive to the summit. This Drakensberg mountains day tour begins very early at 6am from you hotel in Durban as we need to be in the Southern Drakensberg which is 2.5 hours from Durban at 9am.
On route to the Drakensberg mountains your guide with educate you on the area you are driving though and cover the history of the people both in South Africa and in Lesotho before you arrive in the Southern Drakensberg.
The Drakensberg mountain tour begins here where we ascend the mountain in a 4×4 discovering beautiful cliffs, mountains, waterfalls, flowers, trees and the Basotho people who live in Lesotho.
The Drakensberg mountain tour is a must as it mixes a bit of Sotho culture as we enter a very poor Sotho village on the eastern side of the Drakensberg mountain and visit on of the ladies huts (home) to see how these people live so far from the real world. We will hopefully get a chance to sample some home made fresh Basotho bread and Beer before having lunch at the highest pub in Africa. (2874 meters above sea level)
If you are in Durban and wondering what to do for a day then this tour is one of the best things to do in Durban.
