Ladysmith - Central Drakensberg

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

ladysmithLadysmith marks the starting point of the KwaZulu-Natal Battlefields Route, and has guided day trips to the famous battle sites of Rorke’s Drift, Isandlwana, Blood River, Colenso, Vaalkrans, Tugela Heights, Spioenkop, and Elandslaagte. Apart from the numerous battle-sites, both Zulu and Boer War related, there are many havens of bird and animal life and early history sites to be visited.

The 6 000 ha Spioenkop Nature Reserve, situated only 25 km from Ladysmith, is home to various species of wildlife including rhino, giraffe, zebra, a variety of antelope and an abundance of bird life, while Spioenkop Dam is a popular venue for angling, yachting, water skiing and power boating.

Birdwatchers are well catered for, with the Malendeni Bird Sanctuary home to 263 species of bird recorded at the maturation ponds and surrounding flooded areas.
