White River, Mpumalanga
The serene town of White River, situated in the Mpumalanga province just north of Nelspruit, is the perfect spot from which to explore the magical beauty of the Lowveld. This includes the world famous Kruger National Park, many other game reserves and also the awe-inspiring Blyde River Canyon; God’s Window and numerous waterfalls on the escarpment.
White River is the home of numerous craftsmen and artists, exquisite restaurants and places to stay . There is plenty to do and the area is central to some of the best cycling and hiking trails.
White River is easily accessible via a good road network (either self drive or tour bus) and a well-connected airport just 15 minutes away. The cooler climate & higher altitude make it a good option for a base for a safari (game reserves are 25minutes away). Add to this the good schools and facilities and you get a great place to live.

This is where each of us can make a difference. Farmers, municipalities and home gardeners can reverse this trend by choosing bee-friendly plants as ornamentals, windbreaks, on field edges and ridges, and along roadsides. Fortunately, a number of plants used for soil erosion control or for shelter have abundant flowers to feed bees, making the selection of multi-purpose plants more desirable. This has been done on a large scale by farmers and apiarists in Israel, where more than 1 million trees have been planted within the last 10 years to provide forage for bees. In a desert country that goes 6 months of the year without rain, the provision of bee forage has now enabled them to produce more than 3,600 tons of honey per year, enough for export. Other successful programmes have been implemented in Australia, New Zealand and the USA.Details
This forage garden planting plan contains a variety of plant options (medium shrubs and herbs, small and large trees, and pasturage) to meet the needs of both the grower and the bees. It also lays out detailed information on their growth and flowering specifics, their location and soil requirements, and their value to the bees in terms of nectar and pollen.Details
The church is not one to keep its pleasant spot to itself and is opening up a coffee shop on the veranda overlooking the garden. All will be welcome and we can attest to it being a good spot to relax, either with your children playing on the lawn or for a quick meeting.Details
