South Africa is such a multi-faceted country; before you head overseas for a holiday, remember to seek out our local gems. White River, 40km outside of the town of Nelspruit is a wonderful destination from which to explore the wonders of Mpumalanga, and the 3-star Forever Hotel at White River is a beautifully appointed accommodation venue for couples and families who require a convenient location to call home during their stay.
The Forever Hotel at White River recently enjoyed refurbishment, offers accommodation in 52 rooms, of which 32 are double rooms, and 20 are twin, each with en-suite bathroom facilities as well as tea- and coffee amenities. Guests can take their meals at the on-site restaurant, or book the open-air boma for groups. The hotel also boasts a swimming pool, lounging deck, twilight lounge bar and theme evenings.
As for visitors’ attractions in the vicinity – there is so much to explore! At the heart of the Panorama Route, the Blyde River Canyon is the world's largest green canyon. Within striking distance, you have the awe-inspiring Lisbon, Berlin and Mac Mac Falls.
You can also visit scenic landmarks like the Wonder View, Pinnacle, Bourke's Luck Potholes, and Three Rondavels. God's Window is one of the most scenic vantage points in South Africa, and offers an astonishing vista over the Lowveld that extends as far as the Kruger National Park towards the Lebombo Mountains on a cloudless day. Visitors can also walk through the thick, indigenous mist forest that stands among the clouds 800m above the canyon.
Aside from the scenic wonders and historical destinations found along the Panorama Route, visitors will also experience a wealth of fauna and flora, including klipspringers, dassies, oribi, kudu, bushbuck, bush pigs, monkeys, bush babies, and more! There's even the chance of spotting the majestic pairs of nesting eagles in the area. In short – Mpumalanga is a nature lover’s paradise.
