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.

Getting involved does not necessarily mean you need to start participating in marches, or chaining yourself to palisade fences, but never under-estimate the impact you could make with your voice or action, and encouraging others to do the same. Teach your children who, after all, are the ones who are going to inherit this current mess!Details
It is good to celebrate where you come from and to be proud of your school, your language, your history, your culture, your religion but is not ok to teach your children that yours is the best or the only right one. That is based entirely on your opinion or belief. Passing this on as fact is limiting and dishonest. Children need to know that there is a bigger world out there. Outside of your beliefs, outside of White River, outside of Nelspruit, outside of South Africa.Details
“Every patient is free to come and ask questions; it is our job to make sure you understand your medication and the side-effects,” she states earnestly. Some advice she has for her patients, is to look after your health; like following a healthy diet, or just walking around the block if you don’t have time to exercise.Details
The reality is that it’s who you know and how you connect with the community that’s important. It’s about keeping the awareness of you and your business out there. 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. Connect with the influencers, the “faces” and ask questions. Get involved with, and support, community events.Details
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
