Botha's Hill is a small town outside Hillcrest in KwaZulu Natala, Afrika Borwa. It is the gateway to the Valley of a Thousand Hills. Kearsney College moved to Botha's Hill in 1939.

The village is 37km north-west of Durban, on the old main road to Pietermaritzburg before the N3 highway was built. It was named after a settler, Philip Rudolph Botha, grandfather of General Louis Botha (1862-1919), first Prime Minister of the Union of South Africa.[2]
