NELSPRUIT

Nelspruit, the capital of Mpumalanga, lies in the fertile valley of the Crocodile River about 330 kilometres east of Johannesburg. Known as the capital of the great outdoors, Nelspruit is the largest of the Mpumalanga towns. Kruger National Park is only 50 kms from this adventurer's paradise.

Colourful commercial core of the lowveld. The area is noted for fruit production (citrus, mango, banana, avocado, macadamia and pecan nuts), wayside stalls and curio shops. With its sub-tropical climate and abundant sunshine and lush covered hills and valleys it forms the ideal base to explore Mpumalanga from. The lowveld botanical gardens just outside of the town boasts a rare collection of plant species and the first man-made rain forests.

  2. Typowo afrykańska kartka :) Najbardziej intryguje mnie ten most, ponieważ mam słabość właśnie do takich miejsc :)
