Saunter 5

saunter-05-map

Travelling towards Pietermaritzburg there is a crafter who tie dyes, a glass artist who makes glass decorated cutlery, a raptor rehabilitation and breeding stop and a delightful butterfly centre.

Pietermaritzburg nestles below the massive Town Hill which leads to Hilton. 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 a craft project training and selling for rural crafters, a ceramicist and a silver jeweller. The artists have a wonderful variety of styles and have studios between Pietermaritzburg and the Drakensberg. Subjects range from township life, to abstract, to wildlife and dot paintings. The quality of what you will see is exceptional. One of the artists is the current Head of Fine Art and another the former Head of Fine Art at the University. The galleries are well worthwhile as well.

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

There is a lovely country club for golfers, wonderful MTB and trail running trails with panoramic views.
