The capital of KwaZulu-Natal, Pietermaritzburg is home to colonial architecture, museums and a large enclave of Indian South Africans. Pietermaritzburg features shopping and verdant surroundings that include Albert Falls Nature Park, Queens Elizabeth Park and the KwaZulu-Natal Botanical Garden. While Liberty Midlands Mall is the city's shopping hub, the Golden Horse Casino is the center of Pietermaritzburg's nightlife.
When you fly to Pietermaritzburg, be sure to tour the Msunduzi Museum, the Macrorie House Museum and the Tatham Art Gallery. Other points of interest include the 19th-century Church of the Vow, the colonial-era City Hall and a statue of Gandhi, who was removed from a first-class train car in Pietermaritzburg in 1893. City Hall is the Southern Hemisphere's largest load-bearing redbrick building. In addition to the KwaZulu-Natal Museum, Pietermaritzburg is home to Butterflies for Africa, a tropical butterfly and cotton-top tamarin monkey habitat.
