Ingwenyama Conference & Sports Resort

Hotel / Boutique Hotel Accommodation In White River

Breakaway to Ingwenyama Conference & Sport Resort

A beautiful, tranquil country estate nestled in the town of White River, Mpumalanga on the outskirts of Nelspruit or otherwise known as Lowveld, known for its great food, comfortable accommodation, superb facilities and immaculate gardens. A mere 3,5 hour drives from the bustling city life of Johannesburg and Pretoria.

Ingwenyama is a sought after destination for those wanting to escape the city life, for corporate seeking a unique business experience or for the sporting team looking for a pre-season camp facility.

We have been very privileged over the last 22 years in hosting many dignitaries and VIP’s but for us our biggest accolade to date has been the privilege in being one of 32 venues in South Africa to host a world cup squad in 2010, we hosted Chile.

Ingwenyama Conference & Sports Resort has been striving to make this winning resort the perfect place for work and play. This is a difficult balance to achieve but following recent developments we believe we have created a truly unique destination catering for all guest requirements in an spectacular setting.

The rooms are detached & semi-detached, and located in clusters around the estate, all with balconies leading out to the gardens and open space to enjoy.
