Why visit Ladismith?

Welcome in Ladismith

The unspoiled scenic beauty of the Klein Karoo, the majestic mountains on the one side and plains on the other provides a surprising diversity to tourists, unpolluted air and friendly people, no traffic congestion on the roads and relatively crime-free and totally malaria-free are some of the other assets.

It is situated adjacent to a series of fertile, irrigated valleys, at an elevation of 550 m above sea level, at the southern base of the Swartberg. It is currently included in the southern Kannaland Local Municipality. The nearest towns are Calitzdorp to the east, Vanwyksdorp and Riversdale to the south, Barrydale to the west and Laingsburg to the north.

Getting close to nature is an understatement

Various natural landscapes surround us – creating lush farm valleys or mountain ranges with the incumbent kloofs that provide uniquely different challenges and rewards for the nature lover, adventurer, or citizen scientist who wants to explore.
