Set beneath a Leadwood and Jackalberry forest, this opulent safari lodge forms a private and contemporary space in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. If you want a safari experience that will truly impress, this is it.
Silvan Safari Lodge does safari like it’s never been done before. Alluring wooden decks extend to hidden corners throughout the lodge where you can relax and unwind. Spend some time swinging in the handwoven chair-nests or head over to the main living areas complete with oversized daybeds fit for lazing about with a good book and a crisp G&T.
The private suites at Silvan Safari Lodge are also worth a mention. Each suite is named after the tree it takes inspiration from and, more often than not, the one it is built around. Each space is individually decorated, much like a mini art gallery, with artwork from contemporary South African artists and elements unique to a specific species such as the Cassia, Knobthorn and Kierie Klapper.
When you’re ready for some exploring, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve offers a vast bounty of game. This area shares an unfenced border with the Kruger, so while out on morning and evening 4x4 open safari vehicle game drives, keep your eyes peeled for prowling felines, happy four-legged herbivores such as buffalo, giraffe and elephant. With just over 500 bird species in the area, bird-lovers will be in their absolute element.
Dining at this exclusive Sabi Sand safari lodge is a culinary breakthrough and one of the main draws to Silvan aside from its design and wildlife experiences. Each dish celebrates fresh and local produce inspired by the spectacular natural surroundings. One of the most important key ingredients, however, is the service and hospitality warm-hearted team who are always on hand to attend to your every request.
