The following itinerary has been planned and arranged with the owners. We hope to get inside of as many of these houses - or at least get close up.
08:00 Pott House. Briefing of the day’s programme, route sights and significance by Huffy Pott. We recommend that all grab a copy of Claire Neville’s White River Remembered in advance as background information. Copies are currently available at the bookstore at Casterbridge as well as the Kruger Lowveld Tourism Information centre. We will have some of the older residents like Huffy Pott along as tour guides - and as with our previous outing of old White River, hope to have Shirley Swanepoel along to tell more and fill in the gaps. All others that possibly can contribute in this regard are also requested to join us on the day and take part in the conversation.
