KwaZulu Natal DestinationsHimeville, Drakensberg

The hamlet of Himeville lies nestled at the foot of the Southern Drakensberg, its high altitude, heavy snowfalls and climatic extremes possibly the initial reason for its relative neglect.

But the breathtaking scenery, abundance of water and the Himeville and Underberg district’s reputation as a fly fishing mecca, now make it an attractive alternative to the busier parts of the ‘berg.

The Splashy Fen Music Festival, on the farm of the same name, has also been responsible, in part, for placing Himeville on the map. Every year, normally over the long Easter weekend, thousands of local music fans descend on this part of the Underberg to set up camp for a combination of music, arts and crafts, food and drink.

There are three golf courses in and around Himeville and the abundance of water means that water sports like swimming, rafting, canoeing and tubing are the order of the day. The Underberg-Himeville Trout Fishing Club has access to over 160 kilometres of river and 60 dams. Add to that a number of private dams in the area, and any fly fishing fundi would be fascinated.

Formerly the terrain of San hunter-gatherers, who spent their summers in and around Himeville, the Himeville Museum, located in some of the original stone buildings erected in 1900, has a valued collection of San artefacts and is worth a visit.
