About El Roi Guest Lodge
El Roi Guest Lodge is a family owned guest lodge situated on the Panorama Route, near the quaint little town of White River, Mpumalanga. We offer our guests a unique setting in which they are able to feel completely at home. We are located in a malaria free area away from the busy town.
El Roi Guest Lodge is situated on 6.5 hectares with macadamias trees, a pecan nut orchid, penny gum trees and beautiful strelitzia flower lanes. The indigenous bushveld trees and shrubs surround the lodge and attract a wide variety of bird species, which are the only source of sound to disturb your peace.

Guests are welcome to wonder through the macadamia and pecan orchids or stroll down to the river to listen to the sound of the running water of the White River.
