Pietermaritzburg's Rural Warmth and Hospitality

Pietermaritzburg is a constantly evolving city which has recently experienced rapid growth although it has long been a central point for many attractions and recreation. It is the host city for international events such as the Comrades and Dusi Marathaons which are considered amongst the premier running events in the world. The Midmar Mile swimming event boasts the largest open water field of its kind internationally. The dam at which it takes place also provides ample other interests all year round. Accommodation at Midmar is provided at picturesque shoreline camp sites, cottages or a bush camp.

The Midlands is a popular area in KwaZulu Natal. This warm and welcoming country experience has its humble beginnings in 1985, when a small group of crafters came together to create an art and craft route that holds the biggest culture attraction on Pietermaritzburg and the Midlands known as the Midlands Meander. It has grown into a vibrant network of 134 members, some of local extraction, and some who have turned their backs on the city to make their living in this beautiful environment.

The Midlands Meander, which offers great diversity, good value and excellent service at hundreds of farms, hotels, guest houses, bed & breakfasts and spas, scattered along a well-marked corridor. In existence for over 20 years, this craft and leisure self-drive route has long been one of the country's most successful attracting regular return visitors to its diversity and special atmosphere. Cheese farms with quaint goat's towers, a mini-beer brewery, award-winning pottery studios, butterfly research projects, colourful herbal centres and leatherworks all provide quality products made with a personal touch.

Hot air ballooning offers the exhilaration option of seeing the sights of the Midlands from a different viewpoint. Howick is a pleasant historical town close to Pietermaritzburg which features the impressive 97m high Howick Falls. Nearby is a monument that marks the location at which Nelson Mandela was arrested prior to his imprisonment on Robben Island.

This is just a sample of what is on offer as the Pietermarizburg Midlands in KwaZulu Natal offers a galaxy of attractions as diverse and plentiful as the ample stars in its gloriously clear night skies making it the aptly billed "Capital of the Zulu Kingdom".
