About umSisi Cottage

The cottage at umSisi House offers upmarket self-catering accommodation for those wanting unbeatable access to the Kruger National Park without having to stay in the park itself. The cottage is based in the grounds of umSisi House in the Peebles Valley, close to White River in Mpumalanga, and is only 15 minutes drive from the Numbi Gate entrance into the Kruger Park.

umSisi is set in 60 hectares of pristine bush within the Jock of the Bushveld Conservancy. This exquisite location offers guests panoramic views of their immediate surroundings. To the south is Legogote Mountain (an imposing granite monolith known locally as the "Sentinel of the Lowveld") while to the west beautiful rock gardens lead to 10 kilometres of walking trails in the mountains behind.

The northerly view encompasses rolling farmland while the view to the east couldn’t be more different and guests at umSisi will be enchanted by scenes of an African village slowly creeping down the valley. This is Masoyi.

Self Catering Accommodation

The cottage is exceptionally private with its own entrance, covered veranda with exceptional views, TV with local channels, functional kitchen, braai (BBQ) and parking. It offers 2 bedrooms sharing a double shower room. Accommodation options include a double room and a twin room with two singles or a double room and a king room. There is also a travel cot available upon request as well as a high chair.

At umSisi, we are privileged to offer a destination that truly embraces the essence of Africa – its people, its wild places and its wild life.

What a great way to spend New Year's Eve! The Masoyi fireworks were truly more than we expected. Waking up in umSisi Cottage with that magnificent view was just the cherry on the top. Hopefully we will enjoy many more nights in the cottage - a good place to just chill.

We had a wonderful stay at the pleasant Umsisi cottage. With the magnificent views and all the fresh air we had a very relaxed time in the beautifully furnished cottage. We enjoyed having a barbeque in the evenings looking out over the valley with the beat of the African drums coming from the valley below us. We experienced great hospitality from our hosts which contributed to our unforgettable time in White River. We are sure to return to Umsisi.
