The city of Ladysmith sits at the foot of the Drakensberg mountains in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa. The stunning backdrop sets quite a scene for enjoying the land or taking in the historic battle sites the area is known for. King Shaka International Airport
serves as the gateway for long distance travelers before a drive south brings you to this wonderful little city.
Ladysmith has some international recognition due to its role in the Anglo Boer War when the city was under siege for 118 days and includes historic figures such as Sir Winston Churchill and Mohandas Ghandi. The Statue of Ghandi, Siege Museum, and Castor and Pollux all pay homage to this era and can be explored by those interested in the city’s history. Soofie Mosque
is an exquisite example of architecture and really stands out. There are the Biggarsberg Horse Trails and Kwa Cheetah Breeding Project, found right inside the Nambiti Private Game Reserve
, which are great activities to really feel Ladysmith and South Africa.
