Get an early start, picked up at your central Durban hotel, and begin the drive toward the Kingdom of Lesotho, an independent country completely surrounded by South Africa. Travel through the Natal Midlands, admiring the scenery, and stop in the town of Himeville, where you’ll transfer to a 4-wheel drive vehicle.
The next part of the journey involves traveling up the incredibly steep Sani Pass, only possible with 4-wheel drive. When you reach the top, go through passport control at the border—this is another country, after all—and then you’re in Lesotho.
Visit a Sotho village, meeting locals and taking in the mountaintop views, before continuing on to lunch at the Sani Pass Top Chalet (included) with still more breathtaking views. After lunch, travel back down the Sani Pass and back to Durban.
Please note: The 4-wheel drive vehicle departs from Underberg.
