Attractions

Lying in the foothills of the mighty uKhahlamba-Drakensberg, a World Heritage Site, is a typical rural farm town – where dusty roads, pristine mountain streams and enormous sandstone backdrops have sculpted the rustic haven that is Underberg. Although relatively small, Underberg is surrounded by farms, so it’s always bustling with vehicles and locals stocking up on groceries and farm supplies.

Thanks to the Mzimkhulu River, the most popular attraction in this part of South Africa is fly-fishing, followed by hiking, with the Underberg-Himeville Trout Fishing Club alone enjoying rights to more than 160km of river and 60 dams.

The 300-hectare Garden Castle State Forest offers lovely scenic walks and numerous rock art sites in the sandstone caves that are so typical of these mountains. Hiking, biking and river tubing opportunities abound. Hikers can take on slow, meandering trails if they prefer, but the strong and fit will want to try the challenging trek up Rhino Peak to enjoy magnificent views over neighbouring Lesotho.

Golf junkies are even catered for – there are 18 holes to be played at the Glengarry Golf Course, the only golf course in the area. Nature lovers will be in their seventh heaven at the 104-hectare Himeville Nature Reserve, or the Swamp Nature Reserve near Pevensey, where endemic wildlife and bird species abound. Add to this the trout-fishing allure of the 1,159-hectare Vergelegen Reserve, and you have a well-rounded day full of wildlife viewing that ends with a dinner you caught yourself. One of the most enjoyable means of sightseeing in the Drakensberg is on horseback.

Loadshedding Facilities

What is loadshedding? It refers to the temporary suspension of electricity provided by Eskom, South Africa's electricity provider, to reduce consumption and thereby the load on the national grid. To compensate, South African property owners are turning to solar power, inverters with backup batteries or in some cases generators to keep the power on, wherever feasible.
