White River is situated north of Nelspruit in Mpumalanga in South Africa. It is a very popular small town because it is 46 km from Hazyview which is the easiest access point to Kruger National Park. White River has a reputation for its arts and crafts and is a popular holiday destination for visiting the Crocodile River Valley.

Scenic White River with its three dams and number of nearby forests with its many waterfalls is one of the largest Agricultural areas and produces tropical fruit, lowers and timber. There are a few good restaurants in White River of which the restaurant at the White River Country Estate with the Lowveld forests as a backdrop is spectacular. The town has many historic sites and hiking trails as well as the Lowveld National Botanical Garden (17.60 km away). It also offers endangered wildlife tours, game drives, mountain biking, bush braais, chimpanzee tours, night drives and archery.

The farming traditon of the people that settled in White River after the Anglo-Boer War, has remained practically the same to this day and still attracts many who wish to witness this culture first hand and learn more about a place such as this which is virtually untouched.

Agriculture in this area relies largely on the production of tropical fruit, flowers and timber. It is one of the largest in the Mpumalanga province and is therefore extremely important to the economy of the Region.

White River is a favourite holiday destination for both locals and foreign tourists looking to enjoy the beauty of the Crocodile River Valley and with three irrigation dams and a number of nearby forests there is plenty for outdoorsy types to enjoy. Fun activities in White River include visiting the St. Georges Anglican Church, visiting the Mission End Trading Post from which you can pick up antiques and treasures.
