Himeville Nature Reserve is situated in the southern Drakensberg, 130 km from Pietermaritzburg. The reserve stretches along the eastern boundary of Himeville Village and was proclaimed to its present size of 104 ha in 1973. Himeville Nature Reserve offers trout fishing in two dams situated in the reserve.
Boats are no longer available for hire but anglers may use their own small rowing craft or flotation tubes. Power boats are not permitted. Visitors may walk freely throughout the reserve and view Blesbuck and Black Wildebeest. The two dams offer good opportunities for bird watching.
Himeville is only 14 km from Cobham Nature reserve which offers enjoyable walks and hikes for the whole family. Visitors to Himeville can arrange with local tour operators for day trips up Sani Pass or, providing that they have a 4 x 4 vehicle, choose to make the trip into Lesotho on their own.
For those wishing to go on their own a valid passport is compulsory. There are also a number of dams in and around the Underberg/Himeville District for the fly fishing enthusiast. Horse rides can be arranged locally. Visitors must also provide their own trout fishing equipment while a nominal rod fee will be charged for fishing in the dams on the reserve
