My mother and I travelled to Umsisi House for a 4 day mini break from London. It was perfect.
My mother lived in Zimbabwe for 3 years and we have both travelled extensively around Southern Africa (20+ trips) - but we were thrilled to explore rural Mpumalanga and the stunning scenery around Umsisi House.
Umsisi House is like walking into your dream house. It is beautifully designed and yet so comfortable you feel at home from the moment you step inside. Paddy and Amanda are perfect hosts. The food is wonderful - I haven't had so many second portions in my life. We were full board and everything was fresh, locally sourced and utterly delicious - even the seed smoothie for breakfast!
We did 2 full day safaris in the Kruger National Park arranged by Amanda. Wonderful game viewing with our excellent guide, Frances and amazing picnic lunches provided by Paddy and Amanda complete with linen table cloth. 5*.
A wonderful few days and I can't wait to return with my husband and children.More
