Only 20km from the Mpumalanga Province capital city and close to the Kruger National Park and many of the province’s other major attractions, White River is an excellent base from which to enjoy a holiday in this attractive part of South Africa. This serene little town lies within the fertile Crocodile River Valley in the Lowveld region where tropical fruit and vegetables are grown on a large scale and where timber plantations and natural forests dominate the horizon.
The original settlement was named after the White River that ran to its east but today, the river meanders through the suburbs.
The climate in White River lends itself to outdoor activities, with warm to hot days and clear evening skies. White River has become somewhat of an escape for city dwellers seeking a more relaxed lifestyle out in nature and modern enclosed bushveld estates are rapidly springing up around the town.
