Our Guest House sits among ten hectares of mountain top with breath taking views of the surrounding farmlands and other hills and mountains, particularly Legogote or “The Lion Head” – a rennant of a long extinct volcanic core.

The indigenous sour bushveld trees and shrubs surround the lodge as do around one hundred species of bird, which are the only source of sound to disturb your peace.

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 us, with the right combination of luxury indoor and outdoor living, with our lovely rock pool in which to keep cool.

White House Lodge is situated in South Africa’s province of Mpumalanga –“the place where the sun rises” – just 5 km from the small town of White River and 8km from the new Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport with its unique thatched roofed terminal and you can reach White River’s 18 hole Championship Golf-course in ten minutes. A little further away and a twenty minute journey is Nelspruit, the provincial capital city with all modern amenities including a casino and the new Mbombela Stadium which hosted the Soccer Worldcup 2010. 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 on Africa’s East coast.

Finally we can assist you with car hire, organized tours and transfer services.
