About Ladismith Country House
Ladismith Country House is situated 7km outside the town Ladisith in the Klein Karoo and nestles on the slopes of the Klein Swartberg mountains. Only three and a half hours from Cape Town, this privately owned and managed Country House offers the discerning traveller the perfect Klein Karoo experience. With 55 hectares of mountains and plains, Ladismith Country House is a nature lover's paradise offering a variety of birdlife, fynbos and succulents.
