Saunter 5

Pietermaritzburg and the Midlands

This area extends from Pietermatitzburg and then rises sharply as you journey into the mellow Midlands. On the outskirts of Pietermaritzburg there is a crafter who tie dyes and a raptor rehabilitation and breeding centre which has a wonderful show.

Pietermaritzburg nestles sleepily below the massive Town Hill which leads to Hilton and the start of the Midlands. It has an interesting history and this very multi-cultural South African city, is easy and safe to explore on foot. Find out about Ghandi and see his statue and the City Hall. It is an old University town and former seat of power for both the short lived Boer Republic and then the capital in Natal under the British. There are some good Victorian buildings left. The museum is good for pre-history.

Our crafters include ceramicists, superb leather work, a fantastic mosaic artist, weavers, cheese makers, craft brewers and a very special vineyard. The artists,  charcoal drawings, painters and a sculptor, have a wonderful variety of styles. Subjects range from township life, to abstract and to wildlife paintings. The quality of what you will see is exceptional. One of the artists is the current Head of Fine Art at the University. The galleries are worthwhile as well.

One of the highlights of this saunter are the artisanal food stops. There are a couple of great places to eat including a cookery school restaurant.

There is a lovely country club for golfers, MTB and trail running routes with panoramic views. We include some great places to take a walk.
