A Guide to Accommodation, Activities, Restaurants & Businesses in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa

General Information

The history-filled city of Pietermaritzburg is situated in the KwaZulu Natal Province of South Africa.  The Boer settlers earmarked this site as their capital-to-be, having crossed over the Drakensberg Mountain range into Zulu territory on their Great Trek from British dominion in the Cape Colony.  In 1838 the foundations of a neat grid of streets and lanes of Pietermaritzburg was formed. 

It was from this young settlement that Pieter Retief embarked on his ill-fated journey to negotiate for land with Shaka's co-assassin and heir, King Dingane. And gave Pietermaritzburg the first half of its name.  Gert Maritz being the head of a second wave of Voortrekkers, gave town the other half of its name.

Within five years of establishing Pietermaritzburg, however, the Boers succumbed to British military might and vacated the area leaving their carefully-laid foundations to be stamped with a world-renowned legacy of Edwardian and Victorian architecture.
