Information about White River
The town of White River, situated just north of Nelspruit is the perfect spot from which to explore the magical beauty of the Lowveld. It is the home of numerous craftsmen and artists, and is a convenient central point for the many attractions of the Mpumalanga escarpment, with its many waterfalls, historic sites and hiking trails. The serene town serves as a gateway to the Kruger National Park and the awe-inspiring Blyde River Canyon, the spectacular vista of God’s Window, the cascading Mac Mac and Berlin Falls, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, Sudwala Caves, Three Rondavels and the many other natural wonders of the kaleidoscope that is Mpumalanga.

The farms in the region produce tropical fruits, vegetables, flowers and timber.
White River, with three irrigation dams and a number of nearby forests, is a popular holiday destination and the town is renowned for its scenic beauty.
The climate is said to be one of the best in South Africa, neither excessively hot in summer when rainfall is at its highest, nor overly cold during the sunny winters. The farms tend to be relatively small but the agriculture is intensive with tropical and citrus fruits in abundance, and vegetables and cut flowers readily available.
