The hustle and bustle of city can be very hard, leaving one feeling exhausted. Every now and then, we have to unwind and renew the soul in a tranquil environment. umVangati House rejuvenates the weary traveller by reconnecting them with nature.

Situated in the heart of world-renowned Blyde River Canyon, umVangati House offers an inescapable closeness to the natural elements while offering top class facilities and unparalleled hospitality. 

Our location in the canyon means that our guests are exposed to the best the Panorama Route has to offer.  With landforms such as Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the Three Rondavels, Pinnacle Rock and God’s Window, the route has breathtaking scenery. Witness Klipspringer and dassies as they wander about their daily business in the canyon. Birding enthusiasts can view African fish eagle as they fly majestically in the skies from our deck.

Stargazing at umVangati is also another relaxing experience.  How better to end a blissful day in Africa, but to sit reflecting under the star studded-canopy of African skies, the vastness of infinite galaxies stretching before one.

If you’re looking for safari-based experience, the Kruger National Park is situated at our doorstep. Only 90km away from umVangati, the Kruger National Park exposes you to the African Big. Alternatively, you could visit the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre and get acquainted with African wild cats, ground hornbills and Sable antelope. For those seeking adventure, Hot Air Ballooning and Rifting in the Blyde River Dam will leave you feeling reinvigorated.
