Visiting Nelspruit South Africa
The Sudwala Caves are a natural phenomenon over thirty kilometers in length that date back three thousand million years to the time when the Drakensberg Mountains were formed. The six kilometers, which are accessible to the public, are adorned with an incredible array of mighty chambers studded with giant examples of stalactites, stalagmites and flowstone formations. Hour-long tours introduce visitors to a crystal chamber with dazzling examples of sparkling aragonite crystals – a once in a lifetime experience which involves stretches of crawling through tunnels.
Fifteen kilometers outside town lies Chimpanzee Eden, a one thousand hectare refuge established by Jane Goodall for animals that have been deprived of their natural homes and families. Many other species of game also roam the beautiful bush land to the delight of visitors.
There’s a great deal more to Nelspruit than meets the eye – in fact, it is the perfect place to rest awhile in one of the many fine hotels before sallying forth into nature.
