Sani Top is world’s highest point at 2874 metres above sea level located at Lesotho border post in the district of Mokhotlong. The road descends the torturous meandering of the Sani pass.
It traverse through the mountain plateau down the Drakensberg mountains and into the South African province of Kwa-Zulu Natal. The spine-tingling pioneering of this route was previously travelled by Mokhotlong Motor Transport and currently is being used by adventure loving motorists.
The South African border post is 8.km from the top of the pass and Sani Lodge is a further 16k on the right. The town of Underberg is a further 19km along. The Sani Top used to be the opening to Lesotho’s Roof of Africa route that connects the breath taking scenery of the Drakensberg with the attractions of Northern Lesotho, as well as South Africa’s Golden Gate National Park via Caledonspoort or the Monontša Pass. The Sani Top was recently publicized on a TV programme called “Top Gear” showcasing and testing the endurance of the new Jaguar, Porsche and Mercedes Benz cars negotiating the winding and twisting route.
