We were looked after quite beautifully by Paddy and Amanda at their stunning home on the edge of the Kruger. Very comfortable rooms set within amazing gardens minutes from the Kruger and all the activities you could ever want at Hazyview.

They are both obsessed with providing the most incredible food - taking effort not only in the prep, but also in the sourcing. Oh - and the BEST coffee in the world, which is welcomed the morning after enjoying wines from Paddy's excellent cellar.

All in all - perfect. Thank you.

After my first visit in 2016, Umsisi Cottage was a definite must on my return visit, with a Finnish friend, to the Lowveld in March this year.
Situated in the most beautiful surroundings, next to the very imposing Umsisi House, the very tastefully furnished cottage offers every amenity that even the most discerning traveller can desire. It is the most wonderful place to enjoy an absolutely carefree stay with the delightful housekeeper Gogo making sure that all one's needs are taken care of.
We were especially fortunate to have been able to spend a great deal of time with Amanda and Paddy, which made our stay even more enjoyable and memorable. We were also delighted that your very loveable dogs, Bella and Zambuk, frequently visited us at the cottage - it made us feel truly at home !
Thank you to two of the most amazing hosts in the Lowveld !

We recently spent 2 nights in the White River area at Umsisi House and were blown away by the location and warm hospitality we received. Paddy and Amanda couldn't have been more helpful and efficient with sorting out our itinerary for our stay in the area, offering to book all activities and giving first hand reports on each option. They provided delicious wholesome breakfasts and gourmet suppers. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time to enjoy the beautiful grounds, house and pool - so would highly recommend at last 3 nights and booking on a full board basis. I hear the gourmet picnics are to die for! If Paddy’s suppers are anything to go by, we will certainly go back to try them. Thank you Amanda and Paddy!
