Nelspruit: Gateway to the Exotic Wildlife and Natural Wonders of South Africa

Nestled in the eastern part of South Africa, Nelspruit, also known as Mbombela, serves as the capital of the Mpumalanga province. Positioned on the Crocodile River’s banks and surrounded by mountain ranges, this city is celebrated for its breathtaking landscapes and proximity to South Africa’s famed wildlife reserves.


The city was founded in 1895 by three brothers from the Nel family who saw its potential as a farming hub, hence the name Nelspruit, meaning ‘Nel’s stream’. Over time, it grew into a significant agricultural centre and a gateway to the country’s most iconic wildlife reserves, such as the Kruger National Park.

Places to Stay

From luxury lodges to budget-friendly guesthouses, Nelspruit offers accommodation options to suit various tastes and budgets. Francolin Lodge and Loerie's Call Guesthouse offer opulent stays with beautiful views, while the Town Lodge Mbombela and Shandon Lodge provide quality accommodation for budget-conscious travellers.

What to do

Nature and wildlife enthusiasts can enjoy a thrilling safari at the Kruger National Park, known for its diversity of wildlife including the 'Big Five': lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and buffalo. Similarly, the Blyde River Canyon offers excellent hiking, bird watching, and photography opportunities. Explore the rich flora of the region at the Lowveld National Botanical Garden or take a leisurely stroll through the Nelspruit Nature Reserve. For a dose of history and culture, visit the Sudwala Caves, the oldest known caves in the world, or explore the Nel family's history at the Nelspruit Museum. Shop at the Riverside Mall or indulge in local and international cuisines at one of the many restaurants and cafes in the city. From the verdant landscapes of Nelspruit to the exotic wildlife of the nearby reserves, this city offers a captivating blend of experiences. Uncover the magic of Nelspruit and let its natural beauty create unforgettable memories for you.

Where To Go​

The prime attractions of Nelspruit are its proximity to natural wonders. The Kruger National Park, one of Africa's largest game reserves, is just a short drive away. Similarly, the Blyde River Canyon, the world's third-largest canyon and a natural wonder, is within reach. In the city itself, the Lowveld National Botanical Garden, with its cascading waterfalls and tropical rainforest, is a must-visit. The Mbombela Stadium, with its unique giraffe-like structure, is also a sight to behold.
