Accommodation in South Africa and Namibia
White River lies just north of Nelspruit not far from the border with Kruger National Park. It is not a large town but there are some stunning establishments in the fertile surrounding area of scenic beauty. All are well placed for visiting the rest of the Panorama Route or Kruger National Park. The climate is said to be one of the best in South Africa, lovely and hot in summer when rainfall is at its highest, and cool nights during the winter. The farms tend to be relatively small but the agriculture is intensive with tropical and citrus fruits in abundance, and vegetables and cut flowers.

Activities and Attractions:
Casterbridge Farm: the former Mangofarm was converted to a shopping and entertainment complex. Buildings in Tuscan and Victorian style, bush gardens and sunny courtyards with mango, fig and jacaranda trees add a charming flair to the complex. Amidst the gardens you'll find restaurants and caf├ęs, shops for furniture, clothes, art, paintings, arts&crafts and books as well as the White River Museum and The Barnyard Theatre & Cinema, which promises the guest an evening full of fun with music, cabaret and theatre performances in the revamped barn. Rottcher Wineries: The Macadamia Nut Farm in the Nutcracker Valley runs the only orange winecellar in South Africa.
