White River Country Club

Golf Course - Superb golf course! The course is a championship layout in a beautiful tree lined environment. It plays as a par 71 over 6 036m and is challenging but fair. A must when visiting this part of the province. There is also a lovely Restaurant to go and unwind at, relax and enjoy a delicious meal.

Orange Wine Tasting at Rottcher Wineries - Sample delicious orange wine from Rottcher Wineries at Casterbridge. Locally grown Valencia oranges are fermented in the old fashioned way to produce Avalencia, a unique orange 'wine' with an alcohol content of 14.5%. Avalencia can be enjoyed as an delectable alternative to sherry, port or other dessert wines. Rottcher also produces Avalencia Ginger and Avalencia Chilli. 

Wellness at Casterbridge Spa - Wellness@Casterbridge Spa has up to 8 full time therapists and a nail technician providing basic beauty treatments. The Dermalife Spa Oceana hydrotherapy Bath, body wrap and lymph drainage massage produce excellent results for weight loss, improved blood circulation, cellulite, stiff muscles, or deep relaxation. Open 7 days a week, mostly until 18:00. Treatments on a Sunday afternoon must be pre-arranged.

Three Rondawels - The Three Rondawels are also known as 'The Chief and his Three Wives'. The flat-topped peak to the right is named Mapjaneng - the 'Chief', whilst the three wives are named Maseroto, Mogoladikwe, and Magabolle. Towering in isolated and massive splendour behind them is the 1944 m high peak named Mareiepskop, which forms the southern portal of the canyon mouth. To the north of Magabolle is the magnificent, almost arrogant, jutting profile of the Swandini Buttress, which forms the northern portal of the canyon mouth. It offers a superb example of the powerful effect of wind and water on raw rock interspersed with layers of shale.

Lowveld National Botanical Garden - The Lowveld National Botanical Garden is divided into eight sections with the Crocodile and Nels rivers surging through the riparian forest. The garden has a tropical African rainforest section, with approximately six hundred indigenous plant species. The other seven sections are the bulb garden, the South African rainforest, dry bushveld, corkwoods and cabbage trees, cycads, baobabs and wild figs. The 158-hectare escarpment boasts rugged, rocky river scenery with Sour Lowveld Bushveld vegetation on either side of the river banks.

I'Langa Mall - Free Parking, 110 stores, exciting tenant mix hosting 45000 sqm of retail. We are disabled friendly, sufficient parking for disabled persons at most major entrances. Baby friendly with dedicated changing rooms.

God's Window - This is the spot where everyone takes their shots. Serious shutterbugs will be reaching for their polarising filters and best wide angle lens. Choose a clear day and you can see all the way to the Kruger National Park and Mozambique. Glance towards the east and you’ll see the Three Sisters, also known as the Three Rondawels. Just two kilometres north is Wonder View, the highest viewpoint in the region. Spend some time here and soak up the spectacular panoramic Lowveld landscape from God's Window in the lush Blyde River Canyon. The largest vegetated canyon in the world, Blyde is third in size only to the Grand Canyon and the Fish River Canyon. This beautifully green paradise has numerous plant and animal species and is a major core of endemism. And it's also the place where Africa split from Madagascar and Antarctica during the break-up of the Gondwanaland millions of years ago.

Kruger National Park - Exploring Kruger National Park on a self-drive safari is something you have to experience at least once in your lifetime. To get the most out of your Kruger road trip, drive slowly and allow plenty of time to get from the Entrance Gates to the Camp Gates. Kruger Gate opening and closing times depend on the seasons and differ from those of the Camps. The main camps have petrol stations and Skukuza, Letaba and Shingwedzi also have workshop facilities. The speed limit is 40km on dirt roads and 50km on tar roads, but it’s best to allow more time for sightings and delays. Our guide to travelling times is based on driving at 25km per hour. 

Oliver Lodge Restaurant - Enjoy gourmet cuisine at Oliver Lodge Restaurant in White River. The cuisine shows Mediterranean and Continental influence and the a la carte menu is varied. There is an on-site wine cellar that is stocked to the brim with favorite South African vintages. Friendly service, high class food and views of the golf course - it doesn't get better. Booking is advised.

Magnolia Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge - The open flowing spaces invite the seamlessly decorated ambiance into the dining experience inspired by international good honest food. Striking locally made chandeliers boasting over 6000 beads welcomes diners into this gem of creativity as seasonal and varied dishes grace the palate over relaxed breakfast and lunches.

Picasso’s - Picasso’s Mexican Taqueria opened in White River, Mpumalanga, in 2014 offering delicious, freshly-made Mexican food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, whilst you relax and take in the beautiful scenery and sip on one of our famous Margaritas or other unique cocktails. Picasso’s not only offers extraordinary Mexican food, but also an extraordinary experience whilst you enjoy a delicious meal and free Wi-Fi to boot.

Ocean Basket White River - Modern chain restaurant with a cheerful vibe, serving up seafood, sushi and sharing platters.

And there are many many more wonderful places to go and explore as per your personal requirements...
