Umvangati is a beautiful modern house looking over the Drakensburg and Blyde River Canyon - with amazing views! It's a perfect escape for some peace and quiet, a bit of forced 'switch off', which is what we needed. Rooms are lovely (we were in queen), and the whole house spacious and stylish. Hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Food is excellent. My only suggestion for dinners is to give a choice of main in case it's something you don't eat. We drove from Kruger Park and was great to do both. Thanks for the lovely stay.
