Living in Pietermaritzburg

Located in between the Drakensburg mountains and the beaches of Durban, historic Pietermaritzburg is the capital city of KwaZulu Natal. Relatively small, surrounded by lush countryside and still offering the comforts of a city, Pietermaritzburg provides a quality of life many cities can’t match. Home to the University of KwaZulu Natal as well as some of the country’s best schools including Hilton College, Epworth School, Maritzburg College and Pietermaritzburg Girls High School, much of Pietermaritzburg is made up of residential areas, although it contains some small business hubs and a handful of sizable shopping centres as well.

The city is renowned for the Victorian architecture and historical buildings that remain here, but is now home to a variety of modern buildings as well. Home types in Pietermaritzburg include houses of varying ages, sizes and styles as well as apartments and small holdings. Attracting students and families, Pietermaritzburg is ideal for those who are after a life closer to the countryside but not too far away from Durban.
