Tourism: The Kwazulu based highest Pub in Africa showcased

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.

Once up, travellers can soak up the lush mountain views, and of course, order themselves a drink. The Highest Pub in Africa is definitely Africa’s best-kept secrets. Make sure you indulge in their delicious food spread. The in-house restaurant uses the freshest ingredients that are sourced locally from the community. Perhaps try their homemade soup with Basotho homemade bread or their curry selection, wraps or pasta.

Those who do not want to drive back can choose to stay at the Sani Mountain Lodge. Their rondavels come equipped with their own bathroom and fireplace.
