People forget and “out of sight out of mind” applies. You need to keep reminding them you are around. Find out what community organizations exist, White River has the brilliant We Are White River, a concept that was born out of a passion to build bridges, bring communities in the town together and create opportunities for businesses to grow.

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.

The fences have a range of styles from 750mm high single rails to higher 2.5m high 4-rail Buffalo enclosures. These ranch style fences can be used for gardens, horse enclosures, balustrades for decks, road edgings or simply decoration. They are easily fitted with wire mesh to keep dogs in or buck out.Details
We are now well into the swing of 2019, for some it has been a frantic start, a sort of ‘hit the ground running’ after the Festive season while for others it has been more challenging to get going. It looks like this year is going to be every bit as interesting as last year, with political turmoil across the world and we are just 3 months away from our own general election. If you are someone who watches the news regularly you may be shaking your head in a combination of amazement and horror at the insanity of it all.Details
Colonial Homes in White River visited by the Mpumalanga Heritage Interest Group – We Are White River
The Mpumalanga Heritage Society recently did a tour of White River and some of its many colonial homes and buildings on the Yaverland and Plaston roads. It was a great day out with around 40 people in attendance. The group met at the White River Square in town and then drove in convoy to some of the colonial houses in the area.Details
The new outreach centre was created with the support of many local people and particularly the Japhet family, who have done so much good work for Uplands and the local community. It is a beautiful centre, set amongst tall trees on the Uplands property and you could hear the excitement in Violah Moya’s voice as she talked about it. Violah is the Operations Manager at Uplands outreach.Details
Mieke’s focus is on teeth whitening, general check-ups, crowns and dentures and she has a quick turnaround time for both. She wants to make the dental experience as comfortable as possible for everyone, but especially for children. Her kind, approachable demeanour helps with any anxieties children may have and the experienced dental assistant, Carmen helps to make the patients comfortable and put their minds at ease. The practice is contracted with most medical aids so that is one less thing to worry about. Mieke always goes the extra mile for her patients and makes sure they understand the procedures and when to come for follow up visits.Details
Ozonation is where ozone is used to sterilise and disinfect the water. This process is faster and stronger than adding chlorine. The by-product of chlorine is really bad for you, but the by-product of ozone results in three times more oxygen in your water. Although reverse osmosis is one of the best ways to purify water, it also strips water of all its minerals. That is why Gozone reintroduces certain salts and minerals to the water to create electrolyte balancing, ensuring effective hydration.Details
Our key pillars remain social, environmental & economic resilience. The town will thrive if we are able to bounce back from the many challenges that are thrown at us in these three areas.
We Are White River supports a positive approach to life and connects with the community in a number of ways.Details
