Adventurous Groupies will depart from the Thaba Tours offices at 9:00 before travelling to the World Heritage Site of the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park. With regular stops in between, catch some spectacular scenery as you follow the Mkomazana River up to the scenic Sani Valley and make a quick stop at the South African Border Post. Continue up the Sani Pass and view Hodgson’s Peak and the Giants Cup while climbing to an altitude of 2 874m and zigzagging beneath towering cliffs, buttresses, waterfalls and unique flora and bird life. Having completed border formalities, travellers will visit a village to learn more about the Basotho culture. A peek inside a Basotho hut, tasting of Basotho homemade bread and beer, and interactions with the Basotho people is a big highlight of the trip. Following this, travel onwards to the Sani Top Chalet – the “Highest Pub in Africa” – and enjoy a delicious lunch while towering above the world at 2 874m. After lunch, descend the legendary Sani pass and enjoy spectacular views before arriving back in Underberg at approximately 16:00.
