Lesotho Sky is the most spectacular mtb race in the Southern Hemisphere.
“This is Lesotho. A small mountainous Kingdom entirely surrounded by South Africa. I spent several years of my childhood here and when I returned as a young man, passionate about mountain biking, I rediscovered paradise.
Forget fences, forget limits, forget riding as you seen it before. A dream was born. An endurance mountain bike race for only the toughest of riders. 6 days, 500 km, 14 000 m of climbing. I wanted to see riders on paths taken only by herdboys and animals. I wanted to share with others the untamed beauty of this country, it’s rugged landscapes and the warmth of its people. An experience which I’m not sure how to put into words. A place which people simply need to come and see for themselves.
This is Lesotho Sky.”

The 9km drive up the Sani Pass is a 4×4 adventure drive along a rough road connecting Kwa Zulu Natal with Lesotho in the Drakensburg Mountains. The day we did it the weather was appalling! The reward for our endeavours was a cool beer in the bar of the Highest Pub in Africa, at the strategically placed Sani Top Chalets.
Some adventurers take a stroll through the Northern Drakensberg, and later head out on a serious 3 day hike from Mweni to the Senqu River in Lesotho. For people who haven’t been to the Ukhahlamba Drakenberg.
