White House Lodge
sits among ten hectares of mountain top with beautiful vistas of the farmlands and indigenous sour bushveld trees and shrubs surrounding the lodge.
The White River area’s climate is renowned as one of the most congenial in South Africa, and ensures you of a relaxed time - with the right combination of luxury indoor and outdoor living with a lovely rock pool in which to keep cool.
The Lodge is situated just 5 km from the small town of White River, 8 km from the new Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport and you can reach White River’s 18 hole Championship Golf-course in ten minutes.
A mere 30 minutes drive taking you into the world renowned Kruger National Park and in the opposite direction you`ll find the escarpment at 1400 m altitude where you will find Blyde River Canyon, Gods Window and Pilgrim’s Rest.
It is a 20 minute journey to Nelspruit, the provincial capital city with all modern amenities including a casino. The Kingdom of Swaziland is only an hour’s drive away, and a further hour can see you in Maputo, the capital city of Mozambique.
The surrounding area provides a variety of sporting and leisure activities like trout fishing up on the escarpment and helicopter trips over the main landscape landmarks.
Many famous artists have made their home in the area, and high class crafts, curios and artifacts are available.

The owners went out of their way to make my husband's 80th birthday special. I had requested a dinner option and we were spoilt with the most delicious ostrich dish. White House is a gorgeous guesthouse with excellent service. Shall definately go back for longer next time.

We had a really enjoyable stay at White House Lodge. There is a very nice friendly environment and the hosts are warm and welcoming. The location is great, near the Kruger Park and the view is great over the surrounding valley. Will definitely come again.
