In 1994 Nelspruit became the capital of Mpumalanga. Situated in the valley of the Crocodile River, the town was named after the Nel brothers, who bought the farm upon which the town stands. Today Nelspruit is a substantial town with its varied residential suburbs shaded with beautiful flowering trees and all the convenient amenities expected in a modern city. Recent surveys conducted by Realty 1 among Nelspruit households, indicate that the conservative family values, the rich local flora & fauna and the sense of ‘Lowveld open spaces’ all contribute to make Nelspruit the residential destination of choice. Nelspruit is the administrative and business centre of the Lowveld. It provides a perfect base from which to explore the province due to its proximity to the world-famous Kruger National Park and many other attractions which are all within easy driving distance. The warm Lowveld climate produces luscious gardens & trees that attract the many species of bird life which are common in every garden.
