Things to do in White River

The small town of White River boasts a number of great places to grab a bit to eat while it is also filled with quaint shops. If White River doesn’t satisfy your shopping needs, you can always take a short trip down the hill and visit Mbombela, to enjoy a shopping spree.

But if you prefer to stay within reach of our White River accommodation, you can enjoy the following nearby activities/things to see:


This lifestyle centre is just around the corner from Greenway Woods. In fact, if you’ve come to our White River based lodge via the town, you passed Casterbridge along the way in. There is something for everyone here, such as:

  • A stylish vintage car collection/museum
  • Locally made sculptures and jewellery from Roy Sarkin
  • An art gallery filled with exquisite works of art from throughout South Africa
  • All kinds of unique crafts to take home as souvenirs
  • Delectable handcrafted chocolate and all kinds of delicious treats

There are also great restaurants such as Magnolia and Gum Treez, where you can tuck into affordable food and simply enjoy the atmosphere of country living.

Within the town, you’ll find a plethora of bookshops, antique stores, old buildings and even older trees. It’s the perfect place to stroll around in and the town has all of the modern day conveniences, so even though you are in a wilder part of South Africa, you are never too far from the finer things.

Things To Do In The Area

This part of the country is best known for its wildlife safaris, what with the Kruger National Park being minutes away. We offer our guests the opportunity to book a safari and travel from the lodge to the Kruger, in the comfort of a safari vehicle. This way of seeing the park is ideal for anyone not wanting to drive themselves.

Nearby Hazyview is the place for anyone looking for an outdoor adventure of a different kind. From zip lining through the canopy of trees in the nearby forests to white river rafting on the Sabie River, there are plenty of activities to indulge in. You can ask our reception for more information but please note that most of the activities will have to be booked well in advance.

Things To Do At Greenway

Our family-friendly accommodation has a swimming pool, outdoor activities for the children such as a play gym, and a golf course. Greenway Woods is also the best place to simply relax. As our lodge is quite far away from the noise of busy towns, the surrounding green trees and lawns offer a tranquil place in which to simply relax and enjoy a sundowner.
