Other activities in Pietermaritzburg
‘Action Jacksons’ should try Wylde Ride, which offers single and multiday rafting, mountain biking and cycling trips and a cycling-rafting combination in the area and beyond. Transfers to and from Durban (R200) are available.
Project Gateway is a recently launched community-based initiative that runs several projects to help local people, including a shelter for homeless people and a primary school. It’s housed in the former city prison, Old Pietermaritzburg Prison. A craft centre, fabric-printing shop, fashion school and cafe were opening at the time of research. The area around here has a reputation for being a little edgy; go in groups and don’t wander in the surrounding streets.
