About Rustic Butler
Our Guests - Our Friends
That is our motto and we live by it. Since the establishment of Rustic Butler in 2009 we have improved, improvised, renovated, extended, and just simply got better, and are looking forward to hosting you!
Covid-19 forced us to make a lot of changes because your health is important to us!
We will do our utmost best to ensure a safe and hygienic stay. We have taken all the necessary hygienic measures to minimize the threat and to protect our guests and will be ready to host from 1 May 2020.
This virus will not disappear overnight, and we have rethought the services we offer. Request our special offer during May, June and July.
Breakfast (Extra R70,00 per person during May, June and July)
We will not be serving breakfast in our dining room any longer but directly to the table and chairs outside each room / or packed as a breakfast-on-the-go. This will continue until it is deemed safe to do otherwise.
Dinner on demand (R160,00 per person)
A home-cooked meal is specifically prepared to meet guests’ needs while they relax in our 4-star facility.
When it is safe to do so, the guests may be invited to join me in the kitchen while I am cooking with a glass of wine!
Rustic Butler is perfectly situated in a residential area of White River. We are within reach of the Kruger National Park (± 45 km from nearest camp), Blyde River Canyon, and the warm waters of Maputo, yet at the same time close to the lively city of Nelspruit. Riverside and Ilanga malls with their shops, restaurants and movies are 12 km to 18 km away and Casterbridge with its art, cinema, and restaurant a mere six minutes.
A new shopping center in White River with all the necessary shops was completed in August 2019.
White River is also a mecca for artists with the likes of Zakkie Eloff and Esias Bosch. For adrenaline junkies, Induna Adventures is the company to contact for anything from the Big Swing in Graskop (40 km), river-rafting, zip-lining, kloofing to geckoing. A local company offers trips to the Kruger National Park and Panorama Trail.
After a short drive to Sudwala Caves, you can explore the insides of the mountain and afterwards go back in time at the Dinosaur Park. Kaapsehoop is known for its wild horses and has the reputation of snow in winter.
The area boasts numerous cultural and sports festivals throughout the year: Innibos, Panorama, Jock and Uplands Festival are extremely popular. The local schools, Rob Ferreira, White River Primary, Flamboyant School, Penryn, Curro, Nelspruit Hoërskool, Bergvlam, Lowveld High, Nelspruit Laerskool and Laeveld Akademie are known to host rugby-, hockey-, netball- and cricket festivals. Mountain biking and hiking is just two of the many activities happening in and around White River!
We have fantastic restaurants in White River: Picasso’s, Magnolia, Oliver’s, Gumtreez, Loose Mongoose, Zannas, Sip and 24 on Coolmore to name but a few.
Covid Safety Approved: Your health is important to us and we will do our best to ensure a safe and hygienic stay. We have taken all the necessary hygiene measures to minimize the threat and to protect our guests.
