#1 of 29 in White River
Set in 60 hectares of pristine bush, umSisi House is strategically located between the town of White River and the Numbi Gate entrance to the southern Kruger Park (20 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 on either (a) a dinner, bed and breakfast basis,(b) a full board (all inclusive) basis or a self-catering basis (maximum 6 guests). 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.

What an incredible place. We booked into Umsisi house for a birthday celebration weekend and what a wonderful time we had. The home itself is beautiful, Paddy and Amanda are phenomenal chefs and the views are breath taking. It can be as relaxed or as active as you choose. Perfect spot to escape to. Can’t wait to go back again soon!

We celebrated two family birthdays in the exclusive villa. We had a superb time. The hosts, Amanda and Paddy were fantastic hosts. We shared great moments on the property with views over the Legogote mountain and the food was outstanding. A relaxed home away from home with exceptional standards. We will certainly be back.

It's not easy to describe the feeling of being at Umsisi House. You have to go there to experience it for yourself. Paddy and Amanda are there to welcome you to this exquisite villa on the hill and from there, you feel like a beloved and very special family member. The Spanish-themed dinner was better than any of our top restaurants in Cape Town and the attention to detail in every meal made each of them memorable for all of us. What a special piece of paradise. Thank you Amanda and Paddy! Umsisi House now has a special space in our hearts and we hope to get back there soon! David, Mel, Kate, Nick and Lucy.
