Thanks to Russell Shaw for adding this peak.
The highest point in Southern Africa, Thabana is at the southern end of the Drakensberg range, near the top of the Sani Pass between Lesotho and South Africa.
It is about a 25km round trip from the top of the Sani Pass, and camping can be done in the valley before the summit next to a river.
Conditions vary from pleasant to blizzard-like, so ensure that you are adequately prepared for anything from snow to extreme winds and temperatures well below freezing.
