White River Tourism
White River, Cultural Heartland - Things to do
OVERVIEW:An important farming and tourism centre that has its origin around 1890, and is still a base for exploring the Kruger National Park (next door) and the various other natural wonders in the vicinity.
The farming traditon of the community that settled here after the Anglo-Boer War has remained virtually unchanged to this day. Lord Milner, administrator of the defeated Transvaal, demarcated land on the 'Emansimhlope' - a tributary of the Crocodile River whose name translates from the Swazi as 'White Waters' - to demobilised Boer and British Anglo-Boer War soldiers.
After a 26km canal to channel water from the river was built, the new settlers planted trees and established new cultivation methods. The agriculture involves largely the production of tropical fruits, vegetables, flowers and timber, and is one of the largest in the province.
