5 STAR COUNTRY HOUSE VILLA AND GOURMET GETAWAY

umSisi House

Your exclusive country house villa and gourmet getaway to the Kruger Lowveld region

umSisi House is a recently refurbished Lowveld country house inviting you to be ‘At Home in Africa’ in a beautiful and totally private setting with your friends and family. We offer an exclusive-use, luxury accommodation solution for private groups of between 4 and 10 people looking to explore South Africa’s Kruger Lowveld region.

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 (20 minutes away). umSisi House is the perfect destination for small groups wishing to visit the Kruger National Park, the Panorama Route and enjoy the many adventure activities available in the immediate area.

umSisi House sleeps six people in three ensuite bedrooms. For larger groups we can accommodate an additional four people in our cottage which is just 50 meters away from the house. We require a minimum of 4 people to process a booking at umSisi House. We offer a choice of rates to include dinner, bed and breakfast and fully inclusive as well as bespoke menus to ensure that the dining experience is one of the highlights of your stay.

Our luxury accommodation rivals that of any hotel, lodge or guest house in the Kruger Lowveld region. The design and decor of umSisi House is stylishly African; a combination of classic English and contemporary African chic with an international flair to meet the expectations of a well-travelled clientele. At umSisi House we offer a personal service that only a very small, privately owned and managed, five-star, country house can provide. A stay at umSisi is all about the small touches from the special ‘pieces’ positioned throughout the house to our attention to detail and care for our guests while they are with us.

umSisi House is so much more than just another safari destination! Here we focus on promoting the Lowveld lifestyle – the weather, the beauty, the proximity to nature and the wonderful ambience of Africa itself. The umSisi House experience has been created to offer exceptional comfort, all modern amenities, outstanding home-cooked meals boasting local seasonal produce, access to community projects, beautiful rock gardens, 10 kilometres of mountain hiking trails, endless grounds, secret hideaways and the opportunity to create timeless memories.

  • Return guests say it best – “We have stayed here several times and love the little cottage. It's perfect with my three year old. It's totally equipped for self-catering and you have the option of delicious home cooked meals prepared by the owners if you prefer (and when they don't have house guests). Would definitely recommend to stay here for couples and families. Also we have stayed at umSisi House which is gorgeous for larger groups wanting a gourmet getaway.” Tripadvisor review from Casey C. www.bit.ly/umSisiTripAdvisor1
