Staying at our Guesthouse in Nelspruit this September? Here’s what you can do in the areaSeptember 1, 2023

September is a highly anticipated month here in the Lowveld. It marks the return of the Spring months and the warmth that the area is so well known for, and if you plan on booking a stay at our guesthouse in Nelspruit this September, not only do you have the lovely warm weather and early Spring rains to look forward to, but there will also be all sorts of exciting social activities that you can participate in this month.

At Pensao, we are one of the best guesthouses in Nelspruit. Situated in the green and leafy suburbs of a quiet part of town, we offer our guests an oasis in which to escape from the city, or to spend their evenings when in town on business. Our guesthouse is close to the shops and entertainment facilities, which means when you stay with us you can explore our town, enjoy the scenery and still be close enough to your accommodation that you don’t have to worry about planning a long trip back in the evening.

With the weather changing, the bird song returning and the early flowers starting to bloom, now is a great time to treat yourself to a weekend getaway before the year end rush begins and with something to look forward to just about every weekend, here’s what you can add to your events calendar.
