Description [ correction ]

Nelspruit is well known for the production of citrus fruits, hence is the home for the citrus headquarters. The development of the town began when President Paul Kruger built a railway line in 1891 from Komatipoort and Delagoa (Maputo) Bay and named a railway station Nelspruit. Timber production, cattle ranching and citrus fruits production, tobacco and pecan nuts are some of the major farming activities performed.

Comments [ leave a comment ]

“Nelspruit, in the Crocodile River valley is the capital of Mpumalanga. It lies 330 km east of Johannesburg in the beautiful Lowveld of South Africa, The Lowveld National Botanical Garden Northwest of the town on the Crocodile river is worth a visit. Also see the crocodile farm in the same area.. The Kruger Park Malelane Gate (+27 (0)13 735 6152), is about 60 kilometres to the east but requires crossing the tollgate at Malelane (±R40). Phabeni Gate, near Hazyview, (+27 (0)13 735 589075) is about 75Km to the North.” - Chris Smit, 2009/12/12
