White River lies just north of not far from the border with Kruger National Park.
It is not a large town but offers a peaceful place as a stop over, and it has many fine restaurants and accommodation in the fertile surrounding area of scenic beauty. White River is perfectly placed for visiting the rest of the Panorama Route or Kruger National Park . The climate of this area is one of the best in South Africa, lovely and hot in summer when rainfall is at its highest and cool nights during the dry winter.
The farms tend to be relatively small but the agriculture is rigorous with tropical and citrus fruits in abundance, and vegetables and cut flowers.
