Attractions and Activities
The Spionkop Nature Reserve and the Nambithi Conservancy are both short distances from the town and offer game viewing. The Central and Northern Drakensberg mountain ranges are within an hour and a half's drive. Historical battlefield tours of the Anglo-Boer or Anglo-Zulu wars with registered SATOUR guides can be arranged by request.
Ladysmith is well positioned on the main route between Johannesburg and Durban, being four hours from Johannesburg and three hours from Durban. The town of Ladysmith featured very prominently in the Anglo-Boer War (1899 - 1902) and is subsequently steeped in history. The Siege Museum is definitely worth a visit, as well as several other memorial sites and monuments, and of course the Mahadma Gandhi Memorial and Soofie Mosque.
The Ladysmith Country Club which offers golf, tennis, squash and bowls is a stone's throw from Bullers Rest.
