We invite you to explore, indulge and dream amongst the gentle hills and warm-hearted people who call the KwaZulu Natal Midlands home. The Midlands Meander route is situated between the city of Pietermaritzburg in the East and the majestic uKhahlamba Drakensberg mountain range (a World Heritage Site) in the West, in the uMgungundlovu district. In the Midlands, life is lived at a gentler pace, we take time to chat to strangers in the trading store and shell our own peas. During your visit, explore the forests and farmlands and the small villages inhabited by interesting characters. Gather inspiration and original art from world-class crafters, enjoy gracious hospitality, savour new flavours, and celebrate memorable moments.
The Midlands Meander is South Africa's first, largest and most popular arts and crafts route in South Africa, and is currently consulting to the European Union on tourism route development through the Collabor8 programme.
