A beautiful weekend at umSisi House come rain, sunshine and a black out, no obstacle was too much to make for a truly memorable South African weekend. Our hosts Paddy and Amanda settled us into our luxury home and with a mix of clean modern lines, African arts, furniture and divine food prepared with love inside it is easy to recommend this home from home experience; add to this the location of umSisi which sits on a hillside of a lush valley with views of Legogote (Lion Mountain) and just up the road is Kruger National Park, close enough for a dawn safari should you choose. Our weekend was just the tip of the iceberg in getting to know South Africa and we will not hesitate to return with our daughter, to swim in the pool, explore the gardens and the vegetable garden, pick cape gooseberries, climb Lion Mountain, go on safari in the National Park, and mostly hear more fascinating stories of Africa from our hosts as the sun goes down by candlelight.
