Our Opinion: Set in 60 hectares of pristine bush, umSisi House offers a personal service that only a small, privately owned and managed, 5 star, country house villa and gourmet getaway can provide. This is the perfect destination for groups of friends and family wishing to visit South Africa’s Kruger Lowveld region and the Panorama Route. It is particularly suitable for those looking for luxury accommodation near the Kruger National Park either as a base from which to explore the Kruger (particularly for families travelling with young children who cannot book into the lodges with age restrictions) or as relaxing break pre- or post-safari.
With panoramic views of Legogote Mountain and the African village of Masoyi, guests at umSisi House enjoy beautiful gardens, abundant birdlife, hiking trails, a relaxing jacuzzi, an inviting swimming pool, enormous verandah, stunning interiors, an extensive library, WiFi internet throughout and a state-of-the-art TV room.
