Fortunately, Nelspruit (Mbombela) is a retirement oasis ready to give your golden years an extra glow. To help you make your decision, here are ways Nelspruit takes care of its seniors. 

You will have property options

There are rustics farms if you love the country life. There are cosy flats with quick access to the city. There are modern homes with space for your furbaby. Name it and this Mpumalanga city has you covered. 

You will have easy transportation

Your car can become a costly expense. Choosing to sell it or reduce your drive time isn't such a big deal in Nelspruit. Most of its suburbs are only ten minutes or less from the CBD. You can take a taxi or bus to get around the city. For travel out of Nelspruit, there's Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport, Citybug Shuttle Service and the Shosholoza Meyl train

You will enjoy benefits and discounts

Living in Nelspruit can help you get more bang for your buck. There are a wide variety of benefits and discounts available for pensioners. As a pensioner, you qualify for a rebate on your property rates of between 40% and 100%. You'll save on groceries at Pick n Pay, Shoprite and Checkers. When you're up for fun, you'll get reduced prices at Ster Kinekor and Sudwala Caves.

You will love the warm weather 

For a healthy dose of vitamin C, look to Nelspruit. The climate here is mild and generally warm and temperate. The temperate averages 19.8 °C making shorts and slops your all-year-round uniform. Between November and March, the rainy season hits, giving you an excuse to huddle indoors with your favourite TV show. 

You will have the best healthcare

The Fountain of Youth may not exist. However, you'll find something very close in Nelspruit. There are excellent hospitals in the area including Rob Ferreira Hospital, Mediclinic Nelspruit and Busamed Lowveld Private Hospital. You'll also have access to general practitioners, gynaecologists, plastic surgeons, dermatologists and ophthalmologists.

You will lead an active social life

Your retirement can be an adjustment. Gone are the days of office parties, water cooler chit-chat and after-hours drinks. No need to worry! You'll make so many new friends in Nelspruit. In September alone, there are crafts markets, athletic meets and shows. You can make mates at a local gym or bond during a short course. Nelspruit also has a thriving social media community. There are groups if you have a question or need advice. 

You will have so much fun

You have a lot of time on your hands. Nelspruit gives you the entertainment choices to make the most of every minute. Nature lovers will delight in the Nelspruit Nature Reserve, Lowveld National Botanical Garden or take a 30-minute drive to see Sudwala Caves.
