Upmarket self-catering cottage minutes away from the Kruger National Park

umSisi Cottage offers upmarket self-catering accommodation in the Peebles Valley, close to White River, in Mpumalanga for small groups 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 National Park via the Numbi Gate entrance (only 20 minutes away), the Panorama Route and all the adventure activity companies in the area. This exquisite location offers guests lovely views of their immediate surroundings including Legogote Mountain (an imposing granite monolith known as the 'Sentinel of the Lowveld') .

The cottage is exceptionally private with its own entrance, covered veranda, 2 bedrooms sharing a double shower room, DSTV with family package, functional kitchen, braai and covered parking. All linen, towels, cooking utensils, basic pantry ingredients and a daily maid service are included while picnic hampers and delicious home-cooked meals can be provided upon request (with advance notice of at least 36 hours).

Kruger Safaris: The cottage at umSisi House is located only 20 minutes drive from Numbi Gate – the first, and most appealing entrance into the Kruger National Park. Numbi Gate is located in the south-western section of the park and its higher altitude provides a sweeping vista over the Lowveld to the east and granite foothills to the north and south. This is a high rainfall area allowing for a particularly high diversity of plant and animal species.

We are delighted to be able to offer a safari solution for the entire family (regardless of age) that allows you to enjoy the Kruger National Park on a series of day trips while still returning to the privacy and comfort of your exclusive cottage at the end of each day.

We have teamed up with local operators, and their experienced guides, to provide you with the option of exploring the Kruger in an open game viewer should you not wish to self-drive. These vehicles are hired on a daily basis with a private guide.

Adventure Activities: We are happy to arrange and book all of your adventure activities through our reputable suppliers. Please contact us for further details.
