Nelspruit is a gorgeous city in the province of Mpumalanga, South Africa. Notably, it was one of the Host Cities for the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, testifying to its infrastructural, commercial and cultural significance in South Africa. Because it is well-equipped as a host city and can accommodate many local and international visitors, Nelspruit is a popular base from which to explore the rest of Mpumalanga, Gauteng and the Kruger National Park.
But, Nelspruit is also acclaimed for its natural beauty and exquisite climate. The humid subtropical climate means that the vegetation is lush and plentiful, giving the entire area a fertile appearance. This means that your wedding venue is likely to boast magnificent views and that your wedding photographer can rely on fabulous backdrops for stunning pictures. The sheer diversity that characterizes the landscape means that your wedding guests can gaze onto undulating hills, deep ravines, forested valleys or mountain faces.
Because Nelspruit is a viable, bustling epicenter in its own right, wedding planners and bridal couples are assured that the full spectrum of bridal products and services are available. In addition, Nelspruit is home to the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, which has regular flights to and from the OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and less frequent flights to the Cape Town International Airport.

Nelspruit is only 330 kilometres from Johannesburg and a mere 100 kilometres from Mozambique.
