Although technically part of the Midlands, the village of Bulwer is the gateway to the Southern Drakenserg and has a quaint restored chapel built entirely of yellowwood. Near the village is Marutswa Forest and Ingelabantwane Forests that form part of the Bulwer Biosphere Reserve and where there is a number of pleasant walks.

Running along the 5kms between Underberg and Himeville is an avenue of plane trees that were planted to cement relations between the two communities.
