TOURIST ATTRACTIONS/NEARBY FACILITIES

By far, the most popular attraction is a trip up Sani Pass. There are two companies offering guided trips up the Pass being Major Adventures and Sani Pass Tours. Please remember that you MUST bring your passports to cross over Lesotho border. The legendary Sani Pass provides the only road link between KwaZulu-Natal and Lesotho, and is the only road crossing the summit of the high Drakensberg.

Originally a mule track, it is still a tortuous, hair-raising road today. At 2873m you enter the land of the hardy “people of the blanket”, a place that time has forgotten.

The views from this altitude are nothing less than awe-inspiring, with snow and frozen waterfalls in winter, and a blaze of flower blooms in summer.

Himeville Museum Open Tue-Sat 9am–3pm, Sun 9am–12.30pm. Closed Mon. The last laager/fort built in SA completed in 1899 and converted to a prison complex from 1902 to 1971. An acclaimed rural history museum with a furnished house and varied displays in the old prison cells, such as the new Rock Art display, School room, Post office and others. One of the best in SA and well worth a visit.

ROCK ART

Members of the public may visit rock art sites at Cobham and Garden Castle with an approved rock art tour guide or a member of the KZN Wildlife staff.

 

RIVER RAFTING

This must count as one of the most exhilarating experiences. When the Umzimkulu river is in full flow in summer you should try to ride it on a tube or other blow-up craft!

 

UNDERBERG CHEESERY

It is here, on the banks of the Umzimkulu River, that our small herd of Jersey cows produce the quality wholesome milk we use in the making of our farm cheese. Healthy and happy cows are Paramount to quality milk. Each one is known by name, and given individual attention from our family members and dedicated dairy staff. Our local veterinarians visit them on a regular basis to assist us in keeping them in peak condition.

Our small dairy is family-run enabling us to personally manage every step of the delicate cheese-making process, ensuring the highest level of quality control. Full cream Jersey milk, no preservatives, no colourants and no animal rennet are used in the making of our exciting cheeses
