Overview

Roof of Africa Tours offers professional guided tours of the famous Sani Pass (the third steepest pass in the world) and other interesting attractions in Underberg and Himeville. The Sani Pass tour is a must do if you will be visiting Underberg / Himeville. It takes you through beautiful mountain scenery into Lesotho where you can meet some of the Basotho people and experience their culture and way of living. The route, called the ‘Roof of Africa’ has a nerve wrecking final climb of over 800 metres in just 8 kilometres. Roof of Africa Tours offers Sani Pass tours everyday leaving at 9am and returning by 4pm. Contact us for more information.
