White River

White River, a quaint beautiful picturesque little town conveniently located between Nelspruit and the world-famous Kruger National Park, is the perfect base from which to seek out the Lowveld’s leisure offerings.

Casterbridge Centre and Bagdad Centre are two lifestyle centres with an elegant but countryside flair. Here you can get lost in the quaint little Boutique Stores, local Wine and Coffee shops, Deli’s and open-air restaurants. Casterbridge Centre also boasts with a Vintage car museum, small Cinema and a Tourist information centre.
