Sani weekend – Post 2

We left Harrismith very excited since we will be sleeping at the top of Sani pass that night. 🙂

Since we basically had the whole day, I programmed Tracks 4 Africa to take the shortest route which does not mean the fastest and includes a lot of gravel backroads. T4A did not dissapoint and took us through some stunning scenery.

As can be seen by all the clouds and all the water, rain was abundant and even though we very running out of time to make the border post we had to stop often to take pictures.

The border crossing is a breeze and we started up Sani Pass. I would have loved to stop more often on our way up but we had to make it to the Lesotho top on time.

The views were breathtaking non the less until we hit fog close to the top and visibility was limited to about 10 metres.

We made it on time and spent a great evening at the highest pub in Africa.

Our bungalow was basic but comfortable and I had the fire going the whole night because even if it was middle December it was still bloody cold (and wet).

The next day we woke to a clear and chilly morning, with views to die for.

More about that in the next post.
