My visit to White House. Lodge with my son and grandsons was very relaxed and comfortable. It was a truly beautiful setting, with everything we wanted in the way of comfort and cleanliness. We had a friendly welcome despite the fact that a thunderstorm had just cut off the electricity, this sorted all was fine. Our hosts provided a homely...

White House Lodge is an absolute gem of a place to stay. The rooms are immaculate, spotless and spacious. Susann and Detlef are the fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. The pool area is fantastic and the view overlooking the valley is fabulous. I cannot recommend the White House Lodge enough !! Fabulous !!

Very quiet and cozy. The host and hostess are very kind and smart to guide around white river and Kruger park. My daughters like this place, especially the big swing.we love the landscape from the swing. I recommend this place for family trip.

I have stayed at White House Lodge several times and always feel welcome and comfortable. The location is ideal for the airport and White River but quiet and with lovely country views. I recommend staying there

Amazing host with the most spectacular setting. They've made their home everyone's home. The pool area is perfect, the big swing is a wonderful touch and the room was lovely. Can't fault the place and wish I'd been there for longer than just one night. Heavenly setting, peaceful, tranquil and perfect in every way.

Very helpful, friendly and considerate hosts with great local knowledge beyond the White River area (e.g. Blyde River Canyon, Kruger, Swaziland). Location of lodge is central and ideal base for excursions. White River itself is not particularly interesting, but lodge is beautifully located along quiet side street with great view across the valley. Big garden, pool and pool house are...

After being in the Kruger for a week, we stayed three nights with a view to seeing lots more within easy reach of White River. Must confess that we so enjoyed staying at the White House Lodge that we spent two whole afternoons staying in, swimming, watching the birds and the panoramic view, and gently swinging on the bench looking...
