Houses for sale in Nelspruit

Welcome to Nelspruit; a provincial capital of Mpumalanga and a gateway to the Kruger National Park located on the North Eastern corner of South Africa. Snuggled amongst the beautifully flourishing Lowveld of the country, at the banks of the Crocodile River, Nelspruit's fertile soil, adequate water supply and a level valley floor played a major role in this town's foundation. It was mainly because of these elements that farmers and traders were attracted to the area, amongst them, the three Nels brothers who claimed the land as their own while grazing their cattle during the winter months of 1895. They named their farm Nelspruit which literally means Nels’ stream.

Today, not only because of its proximity to the Kruger National Park, but other sites of interest such as theSudwala Caves and the Bourke's Luck potholes as well, Nelspruit has evolved into a tourists haven of Mpumalanga Lying just about 100 kilometres west of the Mozambique border and 330 kilometres eastward Johannesburg, Nelspruit is rapidly becoming a key manufacturing and agricultural hub for northeastern South Africa, making this town an ideal residential area for business orientated people as well. Based on an interesting pace at which Nelspruit is growing, it would be a wise move to invest in property in this town for prospectivehome buyers.

In 1940, Nelspruit became a municipality of Mbombela, a Swati word that means “many people together in a small place". In 2009 the city was officially renamed Mbombela but the residents and visitors of this town still refer to it as Nelspruit. The rejection of the name Mbombela projects evidently through the road signs that are still boldly marked Nelspruit.

To accommodate the 2010 FIFA World Cup, a 1.05 million Rands worth soccer stadium was built in Nelspruit. This arena, Mbombela Stadium has a capacity of 45 000 and ithosted four 2010 Soccer World Cup matches. Mbombela Stadium and the Emnotweni Casino have recently become popular attractions for the residents and visitors of Nelspruit.
