Full description
Beginning at 7:30 AM, in a luxury 4x4 vehicle.  Traverse the breath taking Sani Pass stopping frequently for photo opportunities, tea or coffee and snacks at view points. Water is available in the vehicle at all times. Arrive at the top of the Sani Pass by mid-morning and cross the border control into Lesotho.

Lesotho is a region rich in culture, with traditions steeped deep in the past. The people are open, warm and friendly. Travel deep into the mountains and just before the isolated town of Mokhotlong turn off towards a homestead where you will be met by a village guide. Spend the next two hours engrossed in the skills of the traditional healer, learning the significance of local dance and gym routines. Watch the unique methods of baking of bread and beer making.

These villages are seldom visited, and are therefore able to give tourists the most authentic displays of culture and tradition. After your visit, head to the Highest Pub, on the edge of the Pass for a quick drink and photo opportunities. Then be returned to your accommodation, via the dramatic downward winding road.
