About umSisi House

Set in 60 hectares of pristine bush, within the Jock of the Bushveld Conservancy, umSisi House is strategically located in the Peebles Valley between the town of White River and the Numbi Gate entrance to the southern Kruger Park (15 minutes away).

umSisi House is the perfect destination for groups of friends and family wishing to visit South Africa’s Kruger Lowveld region, the Panorama Route and enjoy the many adventure activities available in the immediate area.

The house only caters for private groups (between four and ten people) on either a self catering, dinner, bed and breakfast basis or a full board (all inclusive) basis. It is particularly suitable for those looking for luxury accommodation near the Kruger Park.

All meals are planned with guests in advance to ensure that the dining experience is a daily highlight. umSisi House welcomes children of all ages. TGCSA 5-Star Country House. This is a destination offering Kruger Park accommodation at its best while truly embracing the essence of South Africa: its people, its wild places and its wildlife.

The Accommodation

umSisi House has three en-suite bedrooms (master suite with dressing room) in the farmhouse. Luxuriously appointed bathrooms all with large showers, deep baths and wonderful views of the surrounding mountains.

Bespoke menus chosen by the guests themselves, delicious home-cooked food prepared with love and local seasonal produce.

An inviting swimming pool heated by the sun, surrounded by sun loungers and a nice big umbrella for those seeking shade. A vast covered veranda with dining area and charcoal-fired oven / barbecue, comfortable plantation furniture and a day bed for those lazy afternoons.

Colonial paddle fans in all rooms and on the veranda to fight off the African heat. A roaring fire in the sitting room and heating throughout for those chilly winter nights when the skies are icy blue. A Jacuzzi in the rock garden to help you unwind before dinner after a day’s game viewing.

Wifi internet available throughout the house. A wide selection of books and other reading material in the Library (which doubles as the TV Room) including a collection of natural science reference books covering all of the region's wildlife as well as guide books and maps of the surrounding area. These are available for your use when exploring the Kruger National Park.

A TV Room for those rainy days or times when guests feel the need to catch up with the outside world offering satellite TV with an HD decoder / recorder, DVD player and a large collection of movies. A selection of games and puzzles. Speakers in all the entertainment areas allowing you to connect your iPod to our system.

Attractions and Activities

umSisi House is located only 15 minutes drive from Numbi Gate – the first, and most appealing entrance into the Kruger National Park. Numbi Gate is located in the south-western section of the park and its higher altitude provides a sweeping vista over the Lowveld to the east and granite foothills to the north and south. This is a high rainfall area allowing for a particularly high diversity of plant and animal species.

We are delighted to be able to offer a safari solution for the entire family (regardless of age) that allows you to enjoy the Kruger National Park on a series of day trips while still returning to the privacy and comfort of your exclusive African villa at the end of each day.

We have teamed up with local operators, and their experienced guides, to provide you with the option of exploring the Kruger in an open game viewer should you not wish to self-drive. These vehicles are hired on a daily basis and the guides are trained to identify everything from the smallest dung beetle to the great African Elephant.

Verified reviewexcellent

umSisi House is a very special place and an inviting home perfect for holiday with family and friends. As owners and hosts - Amanda, Paddy (and their staff) pay attention to every detail and, as a result, have created a unique lodging and dining environment that stands out even among the best lodges, guest houses and hotels in the region. Plan for a three night stay (minimum!) and allow Amanda and Paddy to take care of your safari bookings inside the Kruger Park and have them organize other activities in the area. Meals are exceptional and creatively prepared by Paddy and Amanda and their selection of wine is impressive. Simply put, umSisi House is a "must stay".
