In 1904 the Transvaal Land Department, by order of Lord Milner, formally surveyed the valley below Legogote, the brooding, lion-shaped mountain clearly visible from the present day White River town. Lord Milner believed the valley might prove suitable for the development of an agricultural settlement and a promotional pamphlet was issued by the Transvaal Land Department in 1905.
This is an extract from the pamphlet, “Class of Settler desired. Only men with some capital should think of starting at White River and the sum of £500 is a minimum amount. Men with families should have over £500 as their expenses will be considerably in excess of the bachelor’s.”
A Little Background
Jatinga is a country retreat where guests have the opportunity to escape into bygone era of colonial luxury. Built in the 1920’s the lodge is still serving both local and international guests in fine dining, hand-picked estate wines, personalized service and luxurious rooms that offer guests every comfort.
We are proud with our Restaurant. This is why we are so happy that it was featured on the yearly chart of the best places and things to do in Cape Town.
Jatinga is situated on the banks of the White River, close to Kruger Park, KMI Airport, The Panorama Route, Nelspruit and many other Lowveld attractions.
