It takes two hours get to Sani Pass Backpackers along this way from Giant’s. If you go back to the N3 from Giants and down to Howick and back in to Sani, it will take the same time, much further but faster.
At Sani, there are many things to do, walks, overnight hikes and also the Giant’s Cup Trail with huts. Sani Pass itself is accessible by 4×4 only, but day trips that can be arranged.
Further south from Sani there are the areas of Drakensberg Gardens and Bushman’s Nek.
