Pietermaritzburg is the capital of the state of KwaZulu-Natal, a historic part of Africa. Hire a car to see the Victorian aspects of the city including the town hall which is the largest red brick building in the southern hemisphere.

Queen Elizabeth Park is a great place to visit with many wild animals running free – don’t worry, they’re all herbivores! It’s the perfect place to take a stroll with a picnic and enjoy nature at its best. Finally, for the floral kind of nature, go to the National Botanical Garden which has examples of all the indigenous plants.
