NEED TO KNOW

We did this trip in a day from Afriski Moun­tain Re­sort to Sani Moun­tain Lodge, as part of a re­con­nais­sance mis­sion for an up­com­ing guide. I rec­om­mend do­ing it in two stages, with Malo­raneng as the overnight stop. This trip is best done in the win­ter months, when the Khubelu River is low enough to cross safely.
