The little town of White River's proximity to the Kruger National Park makes it a great base from which to explore the park and other undiscovered gems in the area.

The farming traditon of the people that settled in White River after the Anglo-Boer War, has remained practically tthe same to this day and still attracts many who wish to witness this culture first hand and learn more about a place such as this which is virtually untouched. Agriculture in this area relies largely on the production of tropical fruit, flowers and timber. It is one of the largest in the Mpumalanga province and is therefore extremely important to the economy of the Region.

White River is a favourite holiday destination for both locals and foreign tourists looking to enjoy the beauty of the Crocodile River Valley and with three irrigation dams and a number of nearby forests there is plenty for outdoorsy types to enjoy. Fun activities in White River include visiting the St. Georges Anglican Church and the Mission End Trading Post from which you can pick up antiques and treasures.

There’s also the Lowveld Botanical Garden and the Reptile Park which will keep children entertained for hours. White River often doesn’t receive the recognition it deserves. This is a fantastic get away place, with plenty to see and do, wonderful friendly residents and your very own piece of privacy from the world.

You can follow the original Jock of the Bushveld route, do an artists ramble, township tours, open vehicle safaris to the Kruger Park as well as day and overnight trips to Swaziland and Maputo, and the Blyde River Canyon. White River is a training centre for tourist guides so there are excellent information facilities.
