... whenever you stop people appear and watch you and despite the countryside appearing desolated you soon realize that you are never alone! The initial roads we rode on have no barriers and you ride on passes winding their way through mountains where you soon realize that if you make a mistake and go off the road there will be no way of stopping yourself or your bike rolling for hundreds of meters down steep slopes and ending up in the valley or rivers below with no way of ever ...
... very short stretch and I got through OK feeling very relieved that I had not come off. While waiting under some trees for Mark to catch up we saw 2 other GS's come along the road. They were couples and later that night we heard that they had ridden down Sani Pass - something none of us felt confident to do on our own, let alone with a pillion passenger on the back!! We now headed towards Underberg on tar and a filling station for fuel. It was clear that there was some tension as ...

... today the only road link between the South African province of Kwazulu-Natal and the landlocked Lesotho.
The road to the top of the pass is best traversed in a 4WD specially fitted with low range gears that can handle the rough terrain. Accompanied by a guide-cum-driver, we left next morning with a few fellow travellers in two Land Rovers, the most trusted vehicle in these parts. The route passes through the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg ...
