umSisi Cottage is a 5 star graded property offering White River accommodation for up to 4 guests.

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, between the towns of White River and Hazyview in Mpumalanga, offering superb access to the southern section of the world-renowned Kruger National Park via Paul Kruger Gate (40 mins away), Phabeni Gate (30 mins away) and Numbi Gate (20 mins away).

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.

In this time of load shedding / rotational blackouts, we want our guests to know that we have done everything possible to keep the power on! The cottage has a gas oven, hob and kettle, a Webber braai, gas geysers for hot water and a battery backup / inverter system that easily sees us through Stage 4 load shedding with lighting, WiFi, DSTV and all plugs operational if used wisely.

Loadshedding Facilities

What is loadshedding? It refers to the temporary suspension of electricity provided by Eskom, South Africa's electricity provider, to reduce consumption and thereby the load on the national grid. To compensate, South African property owners are turning to solar power, inverters with backup batteries or in some cases generators to keep the power on, wherever feasible.

I would go and stay at Umsisi Cottage any time of the year, again and again, Amanda and Paddy are very friendly, then Esther the helper what a wonderful soul also as friendly as her managers not forgetting Zamback and Lilly the pets of the century. The place is super clean and very stylish, fully equipped kitchen, the bedrooms are on point with fresh and clean white linen on comfortable beds. the ambiance and nature so stunning, we, even saw insects we have never seen before. I give the place 10/10.

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.
