Being only 100km from the Mozambique border Nelspruit has become a gateway between the two points with equal influence from both sides. A major draw card to Nelspruit is also its close vicinity to the Kruger National Park and the role it plays as a stopover point for the thousands of visitors to the park each year.
Nelspruit was renamed in 2009 to Mbombela but all the road signs have remained the same as well as non of the locals referring to the city by its new name, claiming that it will take away an essential part of the character image that comes to mind when foreigners use the new word.
The city has well implemented public infrastructure and is easily accessible via road and air. The city has two airports namely The Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport and the general Nelspruit Airport which offers scheduled flights to most of the major cities in South Africa.
Nelspruit & White River has relatively mild winters but can become very dry during this time in certain years. Summer brings the rainy season from late November till late February and this transforms the landscape into a subtropical paradise.

Take a short drive just out of the city limits and you will find several ‘padstalletjies’ selling some of the freshest nuts, fruits and traditional home cooked delicacies like chicken pies, jams and bread.
