Why Your Easter Escape Needs to be in Nelspruit

The Easter break is sneaking up, and let’s be honest, the usual routine is feeling a bit stale. This year, ditch the same old and swap cityscapes for some stunning scenery. 

We’re talking about the glorious Lowveld, and the beautiful town of Nelspruit – the perfect place for an epic Easter adventure.

Your Chilled-out Easter HQ

Nelspruit – “Nellies” or “Nelsparta” to the locals – is a vibrant little city nestled amidst rolling hills and brimming with that “laid-back Lowveld charm”. It’s the ideal base camp for exploring the natural wonders of the region, but with enough restaurants, cafes, and markets to keep you entertained when you’re not out adventuring.

Autumn Adventure Awaits

March in the Lowveld is a season of golden light and crisp mornings, perfect weather for hitting the trails! The Kruger National Park is practically on your doorstep, although if you are travelling to the Kruger over the Easter weekend, you will need to book your visit to the park ahead of time as SANParks is limiting day time guests.

Feeling a bit more adventurous? The Lowveld boasts some epic scenery if you take a drive beyond the bush. Take a scenic drive through Blyde River Canyon, stopping to marvel at the majestic Three Rondavels rock formations. Feeling energetic? Hike the scenic trails of God’s Window for panoramic views that will leave you speechless.

Food, Fun, and Everything in Between

No South African adventure is complete without indulging in the local fare. Nelspruit offers a smorgasbord of options, from traditional braais under the stars to riverside cafes serving up delicious meals with a view. Spend an afternoon browsing the local markets for unique souvenirs or simply relax by the pool with a good book. And if you are looking for some local fun or a place to grab a drink, Hennies recently opened at Montana Garden Pavilion.
