Perfectly situated for enjoying the magical Southern Drakensberg.  Scenic and peaceful... to recuperate from city life. Or with a buzz of activities like mountain biking, horse riding, hiking, trout fishing and much more.  Explore a wealth of San Rock Art, the amazing Sani Pass or simply feel inspired by the endless beauty.

Our beautifully restored Connemara Lodge is situated in Main Street, Himeville.

Built before the Boer War in 1890, it is one of the first houses ever built in Himeville, and is now registered as a National Building. It has been beautifully restored throughout, complete with its original oregon pine floors.

Two houses away you will find the famous Himeville Arms Hotel. In between, The Old Stone House is a lovely Bistro specializing in the best breakfasts, lunches and tea in the Berg. Highly recommended whilst staying at Connemara Lodge.

Our lodge offers the following:

  • Connemara Lodge has 4 beautifully appointed bedrooms, each with Queen size beds and the best linen.
  • Three of the bedrooms are en-suite. The bedroom without makes up for it with a beautiful fireplace, for super cosy winters.
  • The Lodge features a beautiful sun room, formal lounge with fireplace and dining room.
  • The kitchen and laundry are fully equipped for your convenience.
  • Outside the sun room is a veranda with a built in braai. The lounge includes full DSTV.
  • The Lodge is self catering but the Bistro next door will supply the meals, particularly breakfast at your own expense.

For the best trout fishing in the area, both dam and river, please contact us to visit or stay at our Connemara Wild Trout Lodge.

Feel free to contact us for advice on guided tours or trails. We also offer a hike to a secret waterfall in close proximity to the legendary Sani Pass.
