    Default Sani pass to Johannesburg

    Hi all

    So i'd like to visit sani pass in 2 weeks time, and stay over at the lodge.

    the next day we head for home, and i'd like to cut through lesotho via the A1 and make our way out via Fouriesburg.

    how are the road conditions on the A1?

    TIA

    Brilliant tarred road all the way. Lots of twisties. Really no issue. Nice drive.

    Just be careful of being in a hurry on that road, especially if itís been raining, and leave ample time to take it slow down the pass from Afriski towards the border. That road might be beautiful tar, but it can still catch you out if you in a hurry.

    plan 4 hours driving time from Sani Top to the border at clarens

    From Sani to Mokhotlong is great tar, then it's the odd pothole through to the bottom of the pass before Letseng, then great again to the Oxbow measuring station. It's potholes again from there to the bottom of Oxbox pass and then fine through to Caledonspoort. Watch out for road blocks just before Buthe Buthe (where the bypass road shortcuts to the border post).
