Looking for a break away from Johannesburg, umSisi provided the perfect answer. The hosts Paddy and Amanda have created a home away from home and ensure your every whim is catered for. Paddy is the most exceptional and passionate cook, creating delicious home cooked meals using many ingredients straight from their garden. The bedrooms are amazing, such comfortable beds and with lovely bathrooms. We enjoyed some fantastic walks straight from the house, relaxed by the swimming pool, explored the local area and above all returned back to city life feeling refreshed and revitalised. Highly recommended for a place to stay outside of the Kruger and you really will not want to leave at the end of your stay!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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). We offer a personal service that only a very small, privately owned and managed, five-star, luxury country house villa and gourmet getaway can provide. 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 4 and 10 people) on either (a) a dinner, bed and breakfast basis or (b) a full board (all inclusive) basis. It is particularly suitable for those looking for luxury accommodation near the Kruger Park. A booking service for local activities (including bespoke Kruger safaris in open game-viewers) is also provided. All meals are planned with guests in advance to ensure that the dining experience is a daily highlight. TGCSA 5-Star Country House. ... more less
