Ladismith Tourism

Ladismith is scenically located in the shadow of the formidable peaks of the Klein Swartberg mountain range and enjoys the typical clear skies and sunny weather of the Klein Karoo.

Travelling along the R62 from Barrydale the unmistakable cleft peak of Towerkop comes into view from many miles away. First climbed in 1885 by a 23 year old Ladismith man, Gustav Nefdt, a feat that was not repeated until 1947, the mountain still draws the adventurous.

The rich farmland of the valleys, vibrant with colour from vineyard and orchard, contrast with the blue-grey mountain slopes and the dark kloofs. The town itself boasts historic buildings with eight distinct architectural styles, several of which have been declared national monuments. The quiet leafy streets and starlit evenings make for a recuperative stopover.

Just 25 kms east of Ladismith the impressive Seweweekspoort links the Klein and Great Karoo. Glancing upwards from the winding gravel road the tortured folds of the sandstone mountains are awe inspiring and well worth the short detour. Seweweekspoort Peak, the highest in the province at 2 325m, rises up on your left.
