For off-road aficionados, today’s ride represents the most technically challenging of the trip, as we use the Sani Pass to reach the Sani Top Chalet at the top of the pass. The pass is a notoriously dangerous road and only 4x4s or dual-sport motorcycles are permitted to leave the South African border post to climb the pass.
Don’t be fooled by today’s mileage. Although the pass itself is only about 10 kms in length, we’ll enjoy additional riding today – both in South Africa and Lesotho.
We’ll spend the evening at a delightful (and very unusual lodge) at the top of the pass. Although the lodge features “the highest pub on the African continent”, be sure to stay awake long enough to see the incredible white carpet of stars after the sun goes down.
