Situated amongst green expanses of the KwaZulu-Natal Province and with the majestic Drakensberg Mountains as a backdrop, Ladysmith is a delightful town on the battlefields route. This route traces the many battles that took place in the 1899-1902 South African War and Ladysmith took centre stage during a bloody siege that resulted in the loss of many lives. Two of the world’s most iconic figures, Winston Churchill and Mahatma Ghandi, had a role to play in the Ladysmith siege.
The town was officially established in 1850 and named after the title of British Governor Harry Smith’s wife.
With a small aerodrome and located close to the main highway between Johannesburg and Durban, Ladysmith is the primary commercial centre for the region.
