Europcar Ladysmith City Centre gives you keys to freedom
Sitting on the banks of the Klip River, almost halfway between Durban and Johannesburg, is the quiet, rural town of Ladysmith. Named after the Spanish wife of Harry Smith, governor of the Cape, this KwaZulu-Natal town has a vibrant African feel and is best known for the popular band Ladysmith Black Mambazo. It’s also the site of the famous 118-day siege by Boer forces during the Anglo-Boer War in 1899. The Drakensberg Mountains form the backdrop of this scenic town that is easily explored by renting a car from Europcar Ladysmith City Centre with us here at Drive South Africa.
The town of Ladysmith has beautiful classic Victorian buildings and many of these historical monuments are on the main square. Hire a vehicle through us from the Ladysmith City Centre Europcar branch and visit the Town Hall, the Siege Museum and find the four field guns: Castor, Pollux, Long Tom and Feldkanonne. Also of interest is the Old Toll House where wagon drivers paid a fee before entering town.
