About Albizia House

Albizia House Bed and Breakfast in the picturesque village of Himeville, in the heart of the rolling foothills of the majestic Southern Drakensberg. Just over two hours from Durban or an hour from Howick (all on tarred roads), Albizia House is the perfect place to getaway.

Albizia House is a Bed and Breakfast establishment situated at 62 Arbuckle Street, Himeville, the main street of this small picturesque village that is just five kms. from the town of Underberg on the Sani Pass road in the Southern Drakensberg of KwaZulu Natal.


There are three comfortable en-suite bedrooms each with tea and coffee making facilities and with their own entrance off a large patio, where young and old can sit and relax and enjoy the ambiance of the beautiful Drakensberg Mountains and a large peaceful garden.

Albizia House caters for the elderly with ramps onto the patio and grab handles where necessary. Our one bedroom is kitted out with a “walk in” shower. The Blue room is a family room with space for a cot or an extra bed for a child.

Undercover parking for your vehicle is also available.


Albizia House offers a full English breakfast or a good selection for a continental breakfast. Breakfast can be served indoors or outdoors depending on the weather. Dinner requirements are catered for as we are located near to a few suitable restaurants.
