umSisi House provides easy access to all three gates servicing the southern section of the Kruger National Park through Paul Kruger Gate (40 mins away), Phabeni Gate (30 mins away) and Numbi Gate (20 mins away) which allows guests to explore different eco-systems within the park and affords them the chance to see a wider variety of game.

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.

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.

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".
