This tour leaves from Durban or similar first thing in the morning as we drive 2.5 hours to a place called Underberg at the base of the Southern Drakensberg. Bring for yourself a packed breakfast althouh we will stop either along the way or when we get there, where you will be able to purchase some coffee and a bite to eat.
On arrival in Underberg you will transfer over to a 4X4 vehicle which will be taking you up the mountain pass and into the country of Lesotho. You will pass through the Drakensberg National Park (uKhuhlamba), a world heritage site. This is due to its unique bird, plant and animal species. But also the some 50 000 rock art sites that are found throughout the mountain range in caves and over hangs. These were made by the San or Bushmen people the true indigenous people of Southern Africa.
You will need your passport as you pass through the SA border post and then drive on very rough off-road conditions up the mountain pass, eventually zig-zagging back on yourself numerous times and arriving at the Lesotho border post 2825m up.
Enter the country of Lesotho and visit a traditional Basothu homestead. Your guide will give you some history and info about these hardened people and how they survive in such difficult conditions. Enjoy some home made bread and beer, then it is onto the highest pub in Africa for Lunch.
