The capital city of Mpumalanga, Mbombela City is also South Africa's gateway to the most amazing eco and adventure activities. So if you have a business trip planned, work in a little extra time around those meetings, you're going to need it to give this city justice. Hotels in Mbombela have also been developed in tune with the hospitable nature of this city.
If your idea of adventure is watching others doing the heavy lifting, then you'll want to pay the easily accessible Mbombela Stadium a visit for either a soccer or rugby match – take your pick. This impressive stadium, which has won various design awards over the years, is not only host to various sporting matches throughout the year, but also cultural events, featuring something for everyone. Another added bonus? It's easily accessible from the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport and is only 110km from the Mozambique border, making it an easy detour on the way to Mozambique for many.
Sports not really up your alley? Mbombela also offers world class shopping facilities and is only 40km from South Africa's most famous game reserve, the Kruger National Park. Adventure seekers can also visit the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve, featuring breath-taking views of this massive natural phenomenon signalling the end of the Drakensberg Mountains on the Mpumalanga side – including from the aptly named "God's Window" vantage point.
Despite "Mbombela" translating to mean "a lot of people in a small space", this particular small space has two airports, making it highly accessible and a convenient accommodation choice for those wanting to explore what the Kruger National Park has to offer. Just like the city has two airports, we've also conveniently placed two City Lodge Hotel Group hotels in this beautiful and adventure-filled city – Town Lodge Mbombela and Road Lodge Mbombela. These Hotels in Mbombela are affordable and modern. You could say we took our lead from the popularity of this great city, we could see how many people would want to sneak in a visit.
