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.
