The steep descent down the Sani Pass provides some of the most stunning natural scenery on the continent. Fortunately the skies were clear when I began the descent on Christmas Day morning, with plenty of waterfalls, wild flowers and mountain streams along the way.
Very happy to be going downhill! Some sections of the descent have gradients of 20%.
Back into South Africa. No wild camping here! A lot of South Africa’s land is fenced off to prevent unwanted intruders.
