I recently travelled to White River to visit Tanya Cruse at Gin & Co, a new gin tasting room and distillery. Tanya arranged wonderful accommodation in a room in the Casterbridge Museum. I really enjoyed my stay there and ended up staying for nearly a week. During my stay I also had an opportunity to visited Mhoba Rum Distillery, Duke Gin at Summerfields Estate, Safari Wine Club in Hoedspruit, Qualito Craft Distillery in Phalaborwa, The Packhouse Distillery in Tzaneen, Picasso’s Mexican Taqueria in White River and Tops the Grove in Nelspruit.
Casterbridge Lifestyle Centre is a unique lifestyle destination in the country town of White River. Here you will find with tranquil gardens, quirky independent shops, restaurants, pubs, galleries, a cinema and the Barnyard Theatre. There is also a boutique hotel and a fitness centre, all just 40 minutes from the Kruger National Park.
