Description

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, close to White River in Mpumalanga, and is only 15 minutes drive from the Numbi Gate entrance into the park.

The cottage is exceptionally private with its own entrance, covered veranda with breathtaking views, TV with local channels, functional kitchen, barbeque and parking. It offers two bedrooms and one double shower room. Accommodation options include a double room and a twin room with two single beds or a double room and a king room. Please notify us in advance as to what your requirements are. There is also a travel cot available upon request as well as a high chair.

With advance notice, we are happy to arrange picnic hampers for your day trips and stock your freezer with delicious home-cooked meals to make the return home, after a long day’s game viewing, that much easier.

We stayed in umSisi cottage for 5 days this place is stunning with the beautiful garden and nice walking route outside the property. We appreciate the privacy very much.Although it's a self-catering cottage, Esther came to clean and organize every morning - what a service.Very good location to explore the beautiful surroundings of Mpumalanga and a stroll away from Numbi gate Kruger. Thanks Amanda and Paddy for your great hospitality, the 5 days was not enough.The cottage is much better than the pictures.

Perfect spot close to Kruger. You can tell the owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. Hammocks, fresh fruit, a bottle of wine.Owners make you feel very welcome in an unassuming manner.The view and cottage are better than the pictures show.

This was the perfect place for our honeymoon. It was very private and peaceful. The surroundings are beautiful and the cottage is fantastic. The cottage was comfortable and relaxing. It had everything we needed. The service was excellent and the view from the balcony was stunning. The local restaurants are excellent and there are lots to do in the area. It's also a great location to explore the Kruger Park and the Blyde River Canyon. Would definitely recommend!

We had a wonderful four days at Umsisi cottage, which is beautifully furnished and thoughtfully equipped with everything we needed for a self catering holiday. The cottage is situated in the grounds of Umsisi house in a beautiful established garden with the most amazing view of the mountains and valleys. Thank you to Amanda and Paddy for their very helpful suggestions and their friendly hospitality. Also a big thank you to Esther who made our stay more comfortable by cleaning the cottage every day. Highly recommended.
