Sani Pass

Sani Pass is one of the most spectacular mountain passes in South Africa, twisting over the Drakensberg escarpment high into Lesotho. It’s accessed via 4x4, mountain bike, quad bike or motorcycle – or you can join legions of runners who tackle it on foot each year – if you’re up for the challenge!

Sani Pass is a name synonymous with adventure, both because of its remote location and the challenging ride it takes to get to the top. The pass is a popular mountain biking destination, and for a slightly less demanding way to enjoy the scenery, quad bikes are available.  Lunch and refreshments are served to adventure enthusiasts in the Sani Top Chalet, home of the highest pub in Africa. Peaking at 2 873m above sea level, the pass is also aptly referred to as the “Roof of Africa”.
