Away from the crowds, the Sabi Sand Game Reserve allows for night drives, off-roading, and nature walks across its dynamic terrain. 4x4 open vehicle game drives offer you the best chance to experience the incredible variety of animals, from herds of elephants to Silvan’s resident leopard, Tiyani, often seen milling about the area. The Sabi’s dense foliage can make some of the animals harder to see, but Silvan’s skilled trackers will easily do the job for you.
An early wake-up call at dawn will see you rise with the bush and its residents. Once up, stretch your legs on an expert-led nature walk. Learn about the various plants and their medicinal uses, as well as some of the smaller animals and insects found in this region. After an adventurous day out and about, the Ansellia Spa is the place to be for a relaxing and holistic treatment.
A gin and tonic have long been the quintessential safari drink, dating back to its use as an anti-malarial remedy, due to the presence of quinine in the tonic. As a nod to this signature drink, Silvan has added a special G&T pairing experience where you can savour some of the best gins sourced from across the world. They do think of everything at Silvan Safari Lodge!
Silvan Safari Lodge certainly sings the song of serenity and relaxation. Named after the African orchid, Silvan’s Ansellia Spa is just the place to unwind after a full day exploring the Sabi Sand Reserve. The massage therapists have designed their signature treatments using locally-sourced, indigenous ingredients, making this spa experience truly unique to the lodge.
