Welcome to Ladysmith Info

A Guide to Accommodation, Activities, Restaurants and Businesses in Ladysmith, South Africa

 

Ladysmith lies on the banks of the Klip River in the Battlefields Region of KwaZulu NatalIt is approximately halfway between between Johannesburg and Durban.  Officially declared a town in 1850, Ladysmith was named after the wife of Sir Harry Smith, Lady Juana Smith. 

Today Ladysmith is the commercial centre for the surrounding communities and serves as a gateway to the central and northern parts of the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park. During winter the snow-capped peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains form an awe-inspiring backdrop to the town.

Ladysmith has an historical past as it was an important transition point for fortune-hunters en-route to the Transvaal gold fields and diamond discoveries at Kimberley and become well known round the world as the site of the 118-day siege. 

The Qeduzi dam which lies about 4kms outside of Ladysmith has flooded its banks every year for the last 150 years.  Activities in Ladysmith include many hiking trails to historical outposts as well as the Spioenkop Nature Reserve just outside of the town.  At 6000 hectares there is plenty of opportunity for walking and fishing.  The nature reserve spreads out next to the Spioenkop Anglo-Boer War battle site.

Ladysmith has a growing business community and provides a wide range of goods and services to its residents and holiday makers.  Ladysmith is not to be confused with Ladismith another town of the same name located in the Western Cape.
