S10, there is great thirst for info regarding the current condition of the Sani pass. Some insight would be appreciated. Intending to do it in April.

Thanks!

Hi Super 10

We did the pass from the other direction earlier this year. We went from Katse dam to Sani pass. We took the B804 past Lihoahloeng Mine. We started out with 6 guys and ended with 4, two guys backed out once we reached the A1. After heavy rain the previous week, the roads were all washed away. We only found out that Sani Pass was closed when we got to the bottom! Here is the You Tube Link: http://youtu.be/NJwhJIJCxjY
