    We were blessed with beautiful weather whilst we stayed there. The country side is beautiful out there. This was my first time in Nelspruit, White River, Hazyview, Sabie but certainly not my last. The rooms and guesthouse we stayed was very neat and comfortable. The hosts were very gracious and friendly and we felt at home there.

    A great find in White River! Breakfast was lovely and the large room and en suite bathroom was spotless. Loved the lapa area and the view overlooking the farms below from the property was breathtaking! Susann was very accommodating ( but not intrusive) and gave us helpful advice about the local area.Will recommend the White House Lodge for anyone looking for affordable good accommodation near Kruger Park.
