Premier Resort Sani Pass (Southern Drakensberg)

Premier Resort Sani Pass is a stunning resort in the Drakensberg nestled at the foot of the Pass and on the banks of the Mkhomazana River with its fresh water coming straight from the Drakensberg Mountains.

This Drakensberg resort is a mere 19km from Underberg with a road built from the Lesotho border post via the Katse & Mohali dams to Maseru and the South African border post to Ladybrandt in the Free State. In addition, Premier Hotel Himeville Arms is also just 12km away.

Comfortable rooms near the Ezemvelo Nature Reserve

For anyone looking for scenic and luxury accommodation in the Drakensberg area, Premier Resort Sani Pass offers comfortable rooms with its Ezemvelo Nature Reserve surrounds. The area is populated by Eland and plenty of hiking and biking trails for those who are adventurous at heart. A permit is needed to traverse the Ezemvelo Reserve and these are available at reception.

Drakensberg Accommodation Perfect For Exploring Sani Pass

Surrounded by mountains, the resort is the base for 4X4 excursions up the Sani Pass, which can be reserved for guests at our reception desk. The Drakensberg resort also provides access to horse trails up the mountain to Lesotho as well as shorter horse rides around the property and pony rides for children.

The magnificent golf course setting includes 10 greens and 18 tees and is  challenging for the better golfer, but still friendly for the beginner and lady golfer. It is a walking course and due to the greens being close to the tees and its meandering nature, it makes for an easy and pleasant walk  and a chance encounter with wildlife  is likely.

Further activities on-site include: Swimming, Chess, Snooker, Table Tennis, Bowls, Volleyball,  a Poker table, Putt-Putt, Fly Fishing and Bass Fishing. A magnificent Spa with inspirational views is open for your enjoyment.

Premier Resort Sani Pass – Scenic Accommodation in the Drakensberg Mountains

Guests can enjoy fishing as well as golfing, hiking, horse riding, tennis and bowls at Premier Resort Sani Pass. The famous historic Old English Pub  at Himeville Arms, dates back to 1904 and is famous for its mouthwatering curries and hearty stews, which can be enjoyed in front of the fireplace. The River Glen Cheese Farm is a popular stop for “foodies” looking to explore local cuisine and produce.

Guided tours are a must and whether you explore the area in a 4×4, on horseback or on foot; San Rock paintings, natural forests, waterfalls and indigenous flora and fauna are just a few of the discoveries that await you.
