This beautiful town lies in a large farming area and was established in 1893. It is named after Sir Garnet Wolseley, a famous British General and Governor of Natal. The majestic Waaihoek, Witsen and Waterval Mountains that are snow-covered in winter surround the town. Four beautiful passes lend access to Wolseley, namely Nuwekloof, Bain’s Kloof, Du Toit’s Kloof and Mitchell’s Pass. The town is part of the well-known Route 62.
