Eco tourism

Red hot pokers are common in the Drakensberg in summer.

Due to the fact that it is quite high, we will have some hills to walk up.

We start off just below 3000m and end up at 3482m. Therefore, you can certainly expect some great views over the mountain kingdom of Lesotho. The first day of hiking is about 5 hours to where we camp below Thabana Ntlenyana. Read more about Lesotho here.

On day 3 which is the last day, we wake up early to summit the pretty little mountain. Then it is another 4 hours back to Sani Top for a well-deserved lunch. After an amazing time in the mountain kingdom of Lesotho, we drive back down Sani Pass and then onto home. Now we can say we have summited Thabana Ntlenyana the highest peak in the whole Drakensberg.
