Nestled on the banks of the Crocodile River, Nelspruit provides visitors with a convenient base point boasting two airports and an enviable location on the road between Johannesburg and the Mozambican border.
Explore Nelspruit's surroundings by going to Hazyview (Elephant Whispers & Perry's Bridge Reptile Park). There's still lots to do: see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour, examine the collection at Sudwala Dinosaur Park, stop by Africa Joy, and take in the dramatic scenery at Montrose Falls.

For maps, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, read Nelspruit driving holiday planner.

You can fly from Cape Town to Nelspruit in 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a bus. Traveling from Cape Town in August, expect nights in Nelspruit to be about the same, around 12°C, while days are a bit warmer, around 27°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
