Ladysmith - Central Drakensberg

Ladysmith is the natural gateway to the tourist delights of the Central Drakensberg and Northern Drakensberg

ladysmithLadysmith is located on the banks of KwaZulu-Natal's Klip River. Proclaimed in 1850, it was named after the Spanish wife of Sir Harry Smith. Ladysmith became a prosperous staging- post for fortune-hunters en route to the Transvaal gold- fields and diamond discoveries at Kimberley. Ladysmith made world headlines at the end of the 19th century when it was besieged for 118 days during the most crucial stage of the Anglo-Boer/South African War. Its historic heritage is its main claim to fame, with many fascinating sites to discover.

Almost halfway between Johannesburg and Durban, Ladysmith is the ideal place for a stop-over. Whether for a few nights or just a few hours - Ladysmith offers a rewarding experience to all its visitors.

Today a commercial centre for surrounding communities, Ladysmith is the natural gateway to the tourist delights of the Central Drakensberg and Northern Drakensberg.
