Pumelani Bed and Breakfast accommodation situated in White River, Mpumalanga, South Africa. Pumelani is a small tranquil indigenous farm set on the outskirts of White River. the accommodation is set away from the main house, the unique cottages are quirky and creative, decorated with flair using artistic elements creating a warm ambience.
High in the hills of the Lowveld, where the crushing warmth gives way to salubrious, soul-expanding air, sits Pumelani, a little Bed and Breakfast so aboriginal in form and reflects its primeval terrain, this Bed and Breakfast is the creation of modern native: and painter and ceramist Rene Eloff. With strong artistic influences from her late husband the renowned lowveld artist Zakkie Eloff, this guesthouse is alive in colour, vibrancy and true African spirit!
Style-wise, the Eloff homestead is a farmhouse - solidly and inexpensively built, with rough plaster walls and a welcoming abundance of timber. Wooden French doors open out onto views that are pure bushveld, and the couple's artworks - like Zakkie's Letaba elephants - remind visitors of their proximity to the wild. "Zakkie was best known for his wildlife paintings," says Rene, "but he was also an excellent portrait painter, and I have a wonderful collection of these 'other' works throughout the house."
Pumelani Guest House is the ideal weekend retreat if you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Alternatively, if you are on-route between the Kruger Park or Mozambique, this is an ideal stop-over to catch your breath and take in some spectacular shopping and quaint restaurants scattered in and around the area!
