Major City – Nelspruit, Mpumalanga

Ravels often get so caught up in the “must-see” or “must-do” attractions of a country that the other amazing, less talked about parts slip through the cracks. Mpumalanga is one of the most stunning provinces in the country. Nature is all around and in the midst of all this wild lies the beautiful city of Nelspruit.

Located on the Crocodile River, this city is also popular amongst people from Mozambique and Swaziland traveling to Nelspruit for their monthly grocery shopping. Nelspruit is home to Emnotweni Casino which is also a large attraction.

If Casino is not your thing, then maybe hiking is. Nelspruit has a number of awesome hiking trails. These include the Two Creeks Hiking Trail in Kaapschehoop.

This 5 day slack-packing hike is a circular route that covers 36.5km of stunning forest trails.
