It’s a new year. The Silly Season is fast coming to an end and we are once again faced with the “reality” of life. The shops already filled with “Back to School” advertising as our Matrics are hopefully celebrating the culmination of 12 years of school, ready to move onto the next chapter in their lives and many wonder how they are going to get through what feels like the longest month of the year with pay-day very far away!Details
This website aims to promote our town and the region by providing helpful information & advice.

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.

It’s that time of year again, a time of slowing down or gearing up if you happen to work in the retail or hospitality sectors. While many look forward to lazy days and holidays, time to replenish and rest, others are facing the hustle and bustle and long days in their stores and lodges making the most of the “milk and honey” time.Details
Thanks to NASA research in the late 1980’s, we have a list of air-purifying houseplants we should have in our homes. These beauties filter out harmful compounds in the air and make it healthier to breathe. If the space stations can green their living space with greenery that removes toxins from the air, we have no excuse.Details
