White River is a pleasant small town situated in a picturesque district. It is geographically well located for tourists wishing to visit the Kruger Park or to travel the Lowveld and the Panorama Route.
Due to its altitude of nearly 1000 metres above sea level the climate is moderate and pleasant even in midsummer. It is ideally suited for the growing of subtropical fruit such as citrus, mangos, avocados, litchis and nuts. There are lots of small farms and vast plantations of pine and bluegum trees around the town.
