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.

Beginning as a specialist in scuba diving safaris, and based in White River, it was a natural transition to “marry” a wildlife safari and become Dive the Big 5 in 1996. The ‘offspring’ division, Transfers and Tours, grew to adulthood and focuses on providing transfers from Kruger Mpumalanga International airport near White River, Eastgate airport in Hoedspruit and Skukuza airport in the Kruger National Park to the Lowveld lodges and hotels. They also transport clients from Johannesburg and Pretoria to various Lowveld destinations.Details

Mashesha isn’t only for rural communities, however, people are buying them for patio use (think our chilly Lowveld winter evenings). “Your chosen social entrepreneur for the environment” is her business slogan but Louise Williamson is incredibly modest and is so much more.Details
