Underberg, East Griqualand - Things to do
OVERVIEW:Underberg, on the Mzimkhulu River, started out as a single store built to serve the settlers who had started farming there in 1886. Because the authorities thought the settlement lacked adequate natural defences in times of trouble, they promoted a new village, Himeville, 5km to the north, as the seat of the magistracy for the district. Nevertheless, in 1916
Underberg was chosen as the terminus of the 62km branch railway line built from Donnybrook (on the Pietermaritzburg-Kokstad line) to serve the area. The village is dominated in the east by the mountain Hlokoma (1904m) whose name means 'the place of echoes'.
