South Africa is often described as 'a world in one country' as the South African landscape offers a breath taking variety of scenery: from desert and lush forest, to soaring mountains and vast empty plains. Culturally as diverse as the landscape, many visitors are drawn to experience for themselves the miracle of the peaceful overthrow of Apartheid. Others are attracted by endless golden beaches, big game, diving, snorkelling or bird watching.

Whatever their reasons, visitors will find their holiday in South Africa a positive experience due to world-class infrastructure, transport and accommodation.

umSisi House is situated in Mpumalanga ('the place where the sun rises') which is South Africa's most easterly province bordered by Mozambique to the east and the Kingdom of Swaziland to the south.

The Mpumalanga province is lush and land-locked; filled with deep ravines, verdant valleys, crystal-clear streams, magnificent waterfalls and plenty of wildlife. It is considered to be the heartland of South Africa's classic safari territory, and is home to the famous Kruger National Park game reserve. Mpumalanga enjoys a subtropical climate and is very fertile. There are many huge plantations growing produce ranging from avocado pears to bananas to pecan nuts to citrus as well as hundreds of thousands of hectares of timber plantations.

umSisi House is a mere 15 minutes away from the Kruger National Park and 20 minutes away from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA), which is the main destination for visitors flying into the Kruger Lowveld region. Renting a car when flying into KMIA is hassle free as the airport offers numerous car rental options.

White River, the nearest town to umSisi House (15 minutes away), is the pretty floral gateway to the Kruger Lowveld region and can be found just north of Nelspruit (the provincial capital of Mpumalanga).

Nelspruit offers all the modern amenities of a first world city from shopping malls, family entertainment, medical facilities and banking to tourism services.

Looking slightly further afield Maputo, the buzzing capital of Mozambique, is only two hours drive from Nelspruit and is en route to the many popular and pristine African beach destinations that the country has to offer. The beautiful kingdom of Swaziland is approximately a three hour drive from Nelspruit and offers a world of bygone African traditions and culture.

It is recommended that you hire a car when staying with us for longer than three nights. On shorter stays, we are happy to arrange your transfers and Kruger Park activities; as the safari park will most likely be your main point of interest and it is unlikely that you will have time to experience the regions many other highlights.
