If you are looking for a relaxing stay in Nelspruit enjoying a great garden, pool and a lodge with only a few family rooms, Mataffin is the perfect place for you. Nelspruit's shopping mall are only 10 minutes away - but you are staying in quite place on top of a green hill.

This small ideally situated lodge , is perfect for anyone who wants an honest and affordable experience. Relax in a tranquil environment nestled on the Halls estate, but still only 5min from the city centre and a stone throw away from Mbombela stadium. This property offers a number of options and facilities to cater small intimate functions, conferences, work shops,... More

Very nice, clean and quiet place above Nelspruit in a big and beautiful garden, perfect with young kids. Good family service, comfortable and friendly, the right place to stay out of city center but still very close to it.

A nice spot just outside Nellies that makes heading out into the hinterland easy and convenient. Enjoy the lawns, the pool, vegetation, trees, very friendly frogs, rainbirds, loeries and friendly family feel.
