Nelspruit & White River & Surrounds
Mbombela, formerly Nelspruit, is the capital of South Africa’s Mpumalanga Province. It’s a gateway to Kruger National Park which is home to the big five. The city’s Lowveld National Botanical Garden features a man-made rainforest. White River lies 20 km north of Nelspruit not far from the border with the Kruger National Park and is located in an area of considerable scenic beauty. Compared to other parts of South Africa, the climate is neither excessively hot in summer when rainfall is at its highest, nor overly cold during the sunny winters.
