The Chelmsford Resort is located 23km from Newcastle in northern KwaZulu-Natal, close to the N11 between Newcastle and Ladysmith.

It is a short 3 hour journey from Johannesburg.

The reserve offers a wonderful day trip for those who want to break away from the battlefield route, or for those who enjoy the freedom of the outdoor light, with the excitement of wind-skiing, canoeing and jet skiing.

Ntshingwayo Dam is a well-known fishing destination with carp, catfish and black bass being caught the most.
