5 STAR COUNTRY HOUSE VILLA AND GOURMET GETAWAY

umSisi Cottage

Your private retreat under the Mobola Plum trees

umSisi Cottage offers upmarket self-catering accommodation in the Peebles Valley, close to White River, in Mpumalanga for small groups (4 people in total) of friends and family wishing to explore the Kruger Lowveld region. The cottage is based in the grounds of umSisi House and provides unbeatable access to the Kruger Park via the Numbi Gate entrance (only 20 minutes away), the Panorama Route and all the adventure activity companies situated in the area.

The cottage is exceptionally private with its own entrance, covered veranda with exceptional views, TV with DSTV family package, functional kitchen, braai (BBQ) and covered parking. It offers 2 bedrooms sharing a bathroom with a double shower. Accommodation options include a double room and a twin room with two singles or a double room and a king room. The double room is our primary bedroom. 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. For your convenience, all linen, towels, cooking utensils, basic pantry ingredients and a daily maid service are included while picnic hampers and delicious home-cooked evening meals can be provided upon request (with 48 hours prior notice if there are no guests at umSisi House).

At umSisi Cottage, you are perfectly situated to explore the game reserve as well as the original home of Jock of the Bushveld as we are set in 60 hectares of pristine bush within the Jock of the Bushveld Conservancy. This exquisite location offers guests panoramic views of their immediate surroundings. To the south is Legogote (an imposing granite monolith known locally as the “Sentinel of the Lowveld”) while to the west beautiful rock gardens lead to 10 kilometres of walking trails in the mountains behind. The northerly view encompasses rolling farmland while the view to the east couldn’t be more different and guests at umSisi Cottage will be enchanted by scenes of an African village slowly creeping down the valley. This is Masoyi.

At umSisi Cottage, we are privileged to offer a destination that truly embraces the essence of Africa – its people, its wild places and its wildlife.
