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 were really pleasantly surprised with this venue. It was in perfect condition, with attention to detail. We felt very safe and the view was amazing. Even when there was a power failure, the hosts, Amanda and Paddy went more than the extra mile to ensure we were comfortable. We will definitely be back!

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... Read more

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.
