Conveniently located between Nelspruit and the Kruger National Park, White River is a tight knit community of artists, farmers and nature lovers, along with those wishing to escape city life.

White River has many fine dining places, while local delis and road side stalls are filled with tropical and citrus fruits and nuts. Businesses are mostly directed at tourism, however the town provides a well-rounded infrastructure which caters to all requirements.
