    Geography, History and Economy

    Area: 5 394km²
    Description: Mbombela Local Municipality is situated in the Mpumalanga province. The municipality came about through the amalgamation of previous local councils in December 2000. The local councils were Nelspruit Transitional Rural Council (TRC), White River TRC, White River Transitional Local Council (TLC), Hazyview TLC, and the Greater Nelspruit Area. Mbombela (previously Nelspruit) is the capital of the Mpumalanga province. Mbombela is the Siswati word for ‘a lot of people together in a small space'. The city serves as a gateway to some of the best eco- and adventure activities in Southern Africa and, with its moderate climate, becomes the preferred tourist destination all year round. Its subtropical fruits (like mangoes, avocados, oranges, lemons, litchis and bananas) are a huge drawcard for visitors, and during springtime the blossoms of orange trees can be smelt kilometres away. For shopping enthusiasts, the city offers world-class shopping malls, casinos and entertainment venues with air-conditioning systems. This creates excellent opportunities for prospective investors and businesses to establish themselves in the area.
