More info about Sani Pass

Viewed from Google Maps, the Sani Pass on the border of South Africa and Lesotho looks like a lie detector graph gone haywire. The road up to the summit of the Southern Drakensburg Mountains (known on the Lesotho side as the Maloti Mountains) climbs steeply through a series of zigzags that’s best travelled by horse rather than by a vehicle. The road is gravel, with inclines that rise rapidly and sharp bends that will have your heart in your mouth. Yet, travelling over the Sani Pass is one of those ‘been there, done that’ bucket list events in life that should be attempted.

The Sani Pass can only be negotiated using a 4x4 vehicle and the pass climbs over 1000m to a height of approximately 2800m. In winter, the road is treacherous and is best left to experienced drivers. Occasional snowfalls can greatly aggravate the situation. For their own safety, drivers may be refused entry by the South African border control authorities if the vehicle is deemed to be unsuited for negotiating of the pass.

Originally a mule trail, a gravel pass was constructed in 1950 to open a border post between Lesotho and the KwaZulu-Natal Province. The pass is still traversed by the Basotho, Lesotho tribesman who make use of ponies known as Basuto that have adapted to the altitude and severe mountainous roads. It’s not uncommon to see the ponies and their riders on the pass.

The Roof of Africa road race has been held here since 1967. Initially a car race, it later developed into an enduro motorcycle race that attracts big names in the sport. The race no longer travels the Sani Pass, however, prior to 1982 it was included and one must salute those brave souls who attempted the race at speed, some in cars, on this hair-raising pass.

The scenes at the top of the pass are breath-taking and a massive reward for travelling the Sani Pass.
