The owners, Lidia and Giel, run this beautiful guesthouse with breathtaking views. umVangati House is intimate (max, 10 guests) which means you'll have privacy to do your own thing, but it still has a cozy home-feel to it.
There are three suits which are separated from the main house so you'll want to get one of these if you can, although the two luxury rooms in the main house are very comfortable as well. All units have king-size beds, air-con and oodles of class.
There's lots to do nearby, such as day-trips to Kruger National Park and exploring the Blyde Canyon.
With gracious hosts, good food, and an amazing location, you'll certainly enjoy your time here.
