The Highest Pub in Africa, situated on the border between South Africa and Lesotho, has always been on my bucket list. I have heard stories of this place for as long as I could remember, and having the opportunity to experience this myself was something I looked forward too.
Travellers from far and wide travel to this iconic destination, braving the harshest of weather conditions and dusty roads to get to the pub.
The pub is perched 2874m above sea level, so it would take around two hours to get there from Sani Pass. Make sure you carry along your passport as you will need to go through border control.
After a brief introduction of the day’s activities, our guide starts the drive up the mountain. With a cheeky smile on his face, he tells us to enjoy the African massage. An African massage is a reference to the bumpy road and not a spa treatment as some passengers thought.
The day tour showcases the beauty of Sani Pass and provides views of the Twelve Apostles mountain range (yes, there's one in KwaZulu-Natal).
The tour is informative and gives insight into the fauna and flora of the area, and the scenery is unforgettable.
Be on the lookout for eland and baboons who camouflage themselves behind trees and plants.
