Within the city itself the Riverside Mall makes a great starting point and is a convenient city centre. Connected to the mall is the home of Lowveld entertainment, the Emnotweni Casino. Get tickets to a show, dine in style, catch the latest blockbusters and stay in famous Southern Sun comfort at two of Nelspruit’s best hotels, Southern Sun Mbombela and StayEasy Mbombela.
A short walk from your room at Southern Sun Mbombela the Lowveld National Botanical Gardens is a calming and verdant destination filled with more than 800 plant species, twisting walkways and shady spots. The Crocodile River and Nels River not only feed the rare African rainforest on their banks, but create spectacular photo opportunities at their waterfalls
Towards the west of Nelspruit, a half hour drive out of the city is one of the Lowveld’s most popular tourist destinations, the Sudwala Caves. Regarded as the oldest caves in the world, a tour of the 240 million year old caves will take you past amazing formations like Samson’s Pillar and the Screaming Monster, give you glimpses of its prehistoric history, and tell tales of bloody battles when it was used as a fortress.
