In the 'hood, White River as a destination

Once you've booked your hotel or White River accommodation, peruse the info pages below for attractions and things to do during your visit to White River in Mpumalanga. The little town of White River - an important farming and tourism centre - was founded around 1890.

Directions to White House Lodge

From Johannesburg, take the N1 towards Pretoria, then turn onto N4 towards Witbank and carry on that road until you reach Nelspruit.

You will pass the following towns:
Bronkhorstspruit, Witbank, Middleburg, Belfast and Machadodorp.

After Machadodorp there are two ways to reach Nelspruit. You can either carry on the N4 where you will pass Waterval Boven and the Elands Valley or you turn left onto the R539 via Schoemanskloof towards Nelspruit. Both ways come together again about 30km before Nelspruit. The distance on both routes is nearly the same. The scenery is completely different. The R539 goes on top of the mountains and will show you forest, the N4 passes the Elands Valley and brings you into the Lowveld.

Carry on the N4 until you come into Nelspruit. At the first big 4-way junction (robot / traffic light) you have to turn left onto R40 towards White River. There will be the big shopping centre called "Crossing" on your left hand side. Carry on the R40 for about 15km.

After you pass the industrial area "Rocky Drift" you have to turn right onto the R538 towards "Plaston" and "Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport". Carry on that road for about 4km until you come to a 3-way stop. Go over and carry on straight for about 2km.

Then you will find our entrance with the White House Lodge sign on your left. Turn in and after 100m you will reach a gate where you have to ring the bell for entrance.
