The community of Himeville lies snuggled at the foot of the Southern Drakensberg, in the KwaZulu Natal province. Its high altitude, extreme climates and heavy snowfall caused it to be the last place for the pioneers to farm here, yet it had rich soil, an abundance of water and the most breath-taking scenery.
Himeville is named after a road engineer and the elected prime minister of Natal in 1889, Sir Alfred Hime. It is here that every year the increasingly popular festival Splashy Fen is held.
Formerly the land of San hunter-gatherers, the Himeville Museum, which is located in what was once a fort built in 1900, has a valued collection of San artefacts and an insightful interpretation of their life and of those ancient times. There are many things to keep any visitor to this area busy. From Trout fishing to canoeing, rafting and tubing. The abundance of water in this region means that water-sports is the thing to do. Visit the Himeville Nature Reserve for some magnificent birdlife.
There is no shortage of accommodation options including self-catering houses, guest houses and lodges. Himeville has a thriving little business community and provides a wide range of goods and services to its residents and holiday makers.
