Mbombela, formerly Nelspruit, is the capital of South Africa’s Mpumalanga Province. It’s a gateway to Kruger National Park, home to elephants, zebras, rhinos and other wildlife. The city’s Lowveld National Botanical Garden features a man-made rainforest. This city sits right in the Lowveld which is wedged between the Mpumalanga section of the Drakensburg and Mozambique. It is in this part of the country where you find the Mpumalanga News.
