Welcome to Sani Pass

Sani Pass

The only overland entry point into Lesotho is Sani Pass, a spectacular mountain road through the Drakensberg Mountains of KwaZulu-Natal. Accessible only with a 4x4, the route is not for the faint of heart due to the unpredictability of the weather. Once at the top, however, you can enjoy amazing panoramic views from the highest point in the Drakensberg, have a drink at the highest pub in Southern Africa, and visit the Basuto Cultural Village. Sani Top also offers skiing and snowboarding opportunities for the truly adventurous.

Information & Facts

South Africa has 11 official languages, including Afrikaans, English, Xhosa, Zulu and Sotho. English is widely spoken.

South Africa's currency is the Rand (ZAR), which is divided into 100 cents. Money can be exchanged at banks, bureaux de change and the larger hotels. ATMs are widely available (there is a daily limit for cash withdrawals) and major international credit cards are widely accepted, except in petrol stations where cash is required. Visitors should be vigilant when drawing cash from ATMs, as con artists are known to operate there. Travellers cheques and some foreign currencies are accepted at larger hotels and shops, but commission is charged, otherwise all commercial banks will exchange them.

Local time is GMT +2.
