What to Expect

Day 1: Underberg to Oxbow

Stop At: Sani Pass Border Control (Lesotho), Sani Pass, Mkhomazi Wilderness area, South Africa
We depart from Underberg at 8am and tackle the 4x4 drive up the legendary Sani Pass. After a drinks break at the “Highest Pub in Africa” we make our way up Black Mountain Pass and down the beautiful Sehonghong river valley and on to the remote village of Makhupung. Here we visit the resident traditional healer, observe a unique song & dance routine and a secret ceremonial dance. Interact and picnic lunch with the villagers. A true, once in a lifetime, cultural experience.

We then climb to the “Roof of Africa” past the Letsing Diamond Mine (world’s highest diamond mine), over the highest pass in Lesotho (Tlaeeng Pass, 3279m)(Africa’s highest motorable pass) and on to Oxbow Lodge. Overnight.
Duration: 12 hours

Day 2: Oxbow to Thaba Bosiu

Stop At: Thaba-Bosiu National Monument, Mafeteng Road, Maseru 100 Lesotho
This morning we leave the Maluti Mountains as we drive down the scenic Moteng Pass and into the Lesotho lowlands. We visit the Liphofung Cave which has been used by people since prehistoric times and includes San rock art on the walls. Learn all about this special site.

We then take a slow drive past numerous Basotho villages, through the town of Butha Buthe to a site that contains 3 species of dinosaur’s footprints, Massospondylus, Heterodontosaurus and Lesothosaurus ("lizard from Lesotho").

After a visit to the Leribe Craft Centre we make our way to the Ha Kome Cave Dwellings. This area was once home to cannibals and past generations of Basotho fled to the caves to hide from them. (lunch – own cost). Next stop is Thaba Bosiu where the Basotho nation was built. Moshoeshoe and his people took occupation here and was never conquered by his invaders. Overnight at Thaba Bosiu.
