Best of things to see in Mbombela
Discovering new places to spend the day is the best part about being a tourist. Bored out of your mind? Not to worry, Mbombela has a lot of places to keep you entertained, whether you enjoy the outdoors or crave civilisation's finest perks.

  • Lowveld National Botanical Garden – If you love nature, the botanical garden in Mbombela is the best place to take a stroll. The escape from the city offers waterfalls, a diverse plant life and a lovely restaurant to enjoy lunch. There is an entry fee, but feel free to enquire about pensioners discount on Tuesdays. Enquiries: 013-752-5531.
  • Riverside Park – Three places are worthy of a mention here, but it all can be found on the same premises. Firstly, the Riverside Mall itself offers shopping, restaurants and a movie theatre. The Emnotweni casino and Tsogo Southern Sun Hotel offers high-class entertainment and hotel experience. Lastly, the Mafunyane Waterpark’s entrance can be found at the end of the Riverside Mall’s parking area, and offers fun-filled water-based activities for the entire family to enjoy. Enquiries: Mafunyane Waterpark on 081-538-9311, Riverside Mall on 013-757-0080, Emnotweni casino on 013-757-4300 and Tsogo Southern Sun on 013-757-3000.
  • The Sudwala Caves just outside of Mbombela offers two distinct experiences. The dinosaur park offers a fun and educational activity to learn about the extinct animals that roamed the earth while admiring their life-sized statues. The second is where one takes a trip led by a tour leader through the Sudwala Caves. Take note that the caves have a wheelchair-friendly path accessible from the upper car park, as to accommodate guests with disabilities. The gift shop and restaurant offers themed meal choices and interesting souvenirs.
