Lady Grey is tucked away in a valley below the awesome Witteberg mountain range. This little town and area is rich in sandstone, fossil beds and rock or san art. Lady Grey was founded in 1856.

 The Joubert's Pass with a gradient of 1:6 is the third highest pass in the country. This pass was originally built by hand by the Joubert family and other farmers. The scenic route over the pass treats the traveller to an ever changing view of river gorges and majestic mountains. A variety of birds, game, alpine plants, rock and stone formations can be seen here.

Lady Grey is also known for its railway track, where the train has to manoeuvre backwards and forwards up the slopes in some areas. Unfortunately this railway line – with its reverses – is no longer operational. Registered tour guides can take the tourist for historic and botanical tours around town.

The Cape Vulture Sanctuary in the Karnmelkspruit gorge is well worth a visit where you can get an eye-level view of these magnificent birds. This area has some of the best fly-fishing waters in the country with crystal clear streams and breathtaking scenery.

All activities in the area will be by prior arrangement with the relevant people.  Fishing is catch and release only. You will catch yellow fish and trout in these waters. There are lots of lovely hikes in the area.

There are also camping sites on the Karnmelkspruit River and in town for keen caravan enthusiasts.

Lady Grey hosts a few artists and The Arts Academy produces young artists in drama, dance, music and singing. The Altec choir has live performances throughout the year. Exhibitions are held regularly. Apart from the church and the museum, other historical places include the Powder Magazine, historic buildings and the cemetery with graves of soldiers form the Boer War.

Accommodation in town varies from back packers to four star accommodations. Accommodation in the countryside varies from lodges, camping sites, game farms and self-catering establishments of high quality.

There are a number of restaurants and coffee shops in Lady Grey.  A padstal on the R58 towards Barkly East provides the traveler with home-made goodies from this area.
