With the turn of the year, there is much hope that travel will be a little easier during the coming 12 months. After almost 2 years of uncertainty and having to put travel plans on hold, there does seem to be a genuine light at the end of this tunnel, and if this is the year that you hope to shake the dust off of your suitcase, why not start the year with a local adventure?

The pristine beauty of the Lowveld is one of many reasons why travellers from all over South Africa journey to the area. Not only is it a green paradise, especially in the summer months, but it is also home to all sorts of spectacular sites, including vibrant forests and hiking trails, and ancient historical towns.

Our corner of the world is a wonderful place to have a solo trip, a family getaway or a romantic break, and when you are looking at making White River the base for your trip, there are plenty of comfortable and interesting places to stay in the village.

White River is an idyllic place, because while it has all of the modern conveniences you could possibly want for your trip, it is also a peaceful haven well away from the crazy crowds. And given its location, it is a town that is close to some of the very best attractions the area has to offer. Here are some White River accommodation options to think about in 2022:

Accommodation in Whiteriver

Greenway Woods

Greenway Woods is a comfortable and affordable place to stay just outside of White River, on the Hazyview road. Here guests can enjoy lazy days under the Blue Gum trees, or by the pool, while being close enough to explore some of the best attractions that the area has to offer. A big pull for those considering Greenway Woods is the fact that it is just a stone’s throw away from the Kruger National Park.

Monkey Thorn Guest Lodge

For a more homely stay, Monkey Thorn has a lot to offer its guests. The lodge is just a 35 minute drive away from the Kruger National Park and since it only accommodates up to 18 guests, a stay here is private and somewhat secluded.

Ku De Ta Bed and Breakfast

Guests looking for a short term place to stay, which is both luxurious and homely, the Ku De Ta Bed and Breakfast is an ideal option. Incredibly affordable and close to all sorts of exciting things to do, this bed and breakfast is one to consider.

El Roi Lodge

Self-catering accommodation is the perfect route to take if you don’t mind making your own meals and if you are looking for a cheaper stay. And at El Roi Lodge, with its self-catered facilities, guests can better plan their stay. This lodge is conveniently located on the Panorama Route, close to some of the best things to do in the Lowveld.

Paradise Falls

Another self-catered option in another beautiful spot, a stay at Paradise falls will have anyone feeling more relaxed and at ease throughout their holiday. The accommodation sleeps a small number of guests and it is well priced.
