Sani_Pass_heading_into_Lesotho

Arrival

Arrive at Durban’s King Shaka International Airport followed by a short transfer by ABT to your Umhlanga Rocks hotel where you will spend the night. Here you will receive a detailed itinerary of your trip. This tour includes gravel roads and rocky mountain passes and is recommended for the more experienced rider.

Day one

We head south and ride through beautiful sugar cane farmlands, rural towns and villages. Our first day of riding will take us through stunning valleys and forests in the south of Kwa-Zulu Natal. We will enter the Eastern Cape Province and overnight in the town of Matatiele where we will have a traditional South African braai for dinner. (Barbeque)

Day two

Today we will enter the Kingdom of Lesotho via Qacha’s Nek pass. The trip will take us to the magnificent Maletsunyane Falls after which we will have lunch at the Semonkong Lodge. After lunch we travel to Roma where we will spend the night but still have time to visit the Mohale Dam or some of the iconic Roof of Africa routes.

Day three

This ride is a little longer but we will traverse the mountainous Lesotho from west to east and enjoy a beverage at the highest pub in Africa before descending the “bucket list” Sani Pass into Kwa-Zulu Natal where we will overnight in Underberg at the base of the majestic Drakensberg mountain range, now known as the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park and also a World Heritage Site. The accommodation will be luxurious and deservedly we will enjoy some wonderful local cuisine and South African wines at dinner.

Day four

To complete the loop, today will take us through some beautiful farmlands, river valleys and forests. We then ride along the Valley of a Thousand Hills before our mid afternoon return to Umhlanga Rocks where you will be transferred to your hotel and we will say our goodbyes.
