Located in a semi-arid region in the Western Cape and sandwiched between 2 mountain ranges, Ladismith is an exquisite little town, the buildings made up of a variety of architectural styles, giving the place a unique character.
Ladismith was named after the wife of British Governor Harry Smith during its formation in 1852. To show her gratitude, she sent the townsfolk £10 and a Bible. Many years later, the spelling of the name was changed to Ladismith to avoid confusion with a town further north previously named Ladysmith.
There are a host of spectacularly engineered passes in and around Ladismith, the most notable being the Seweweekspoort Pass that summits near to the Seweweekspoort peak, the highest in the Western Cape at 2.3km above sea level.
For an escape from city life simply to breathe in clean air, clear the mind and relax under big skies, Ladismith is the perfect destination.
