We were very impressed how the owners combined & managed the integration of the "bush/nature" with a luxury & open "living experience". The benefits of the wildlife without the negative feeling or risks being chased by bugs or other annoying creatures.... And that in combination of a superb kitchen lead by Lydia & Hill. Thank you, we enjoyed the days in umVangati House as one of the highlights of our tour.
The lodge and its separate villas for the guests are amazing. We liked the high-grade wooden interior and handmade timber furniture of its best. Lidias cooking is extraordinary and we felt so welcome! Next time we will definitely stay longer.
This accommodation took our breath away. We were mesmorised from the moment we arrived until we had to leave. Everything was absolutely perfect. Location, views, food, hosts, rooms, everything. Highly recommend. If you get the chance to dine in their wine cellar, you're in for a treat. Our honeymoon was made so much more special by finding this gem. Thank you for allowing us this amazing opportunity to experience such a luxury. Would love to revisit in the future.
My husband and I had a remarkable two nights with Lidia and Giel in what is truly a 5 star experience! Friends joined us for a night as well and we had a lovely dinner in the wine cellar which was outstanding! The suites are spacious and gorgeously designed. The detail around the care of your stay is without equal. They've done an incredible job of creating an oasis that is aesthetically stimulating in a location of stunning beauty that leaves you feeling as if you're the only people in the world. The food and wine are excellent and we would absolutely recommend this and would quickly stay again. It's rare to find such a concept so expertly executed! Thanks to Lidia and Giel for their vision!
This place is INCREDIBLE. The hosts are the nicest people. The views are even nicer than the photos make it look, and the same with the actual place There's a huge open area in the main house and two decks. Then the rooms also have incredible views. We had dinner each night and breakfast each day and all the meals were great and very filling! Would highly recommend coming out here and seeing Blyde River Canyon and enjoying this incredible home.
