Silvan Safari Lodge

Silvan Safari Lodge, Kruger National Park

The six individually decorated suits at award-winning Silvan Safari Lodge are named after splendid trees that shade this new modern and intimate luxury safari lodge in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve near Kruger. Sprawled along the Manyeleti River, the lodge is dynamic, decadent and so private that guests could be alone.

For that definitive safari experience, book one of our special online deals for South Africans and find Silvan sitting cosily within a grove of ancient Leadwood and Jackal berry trees. The family suite is named after this Leadwood, a very strong, heavy wood that makes a good hot fire – animals love to snack on the leaves. So, this suite is strongly created around a live Leadwood in the deck and stone features match this majesty. It sleeps 4 people with a larger pool on its expansive deck.

The Kierie Klapper Suite is named after the bushwillow, a gorgeous bushveld tree that inspired the coppery, burnt colours in this refuge where the bee eater’s turquoise makes its mark too. Art on the walls adds splashes of authenticity reminding the visitor of the artscape outside too. Book it if you are on honeymoon, find that solitude.

Cassia Suite shows off yellows, blacks, deep greens and coppers just like this beautiful tree that makes dappled shade and offers bright yellow flowers to the bees. Knobthorn Suite is accessible for wheel chairs and is mostly muted greys, dim yellows and beautiful tones and textures that reflect the knobbly bark of this amazing tree. 

Blue Guarrie Suite is tinted with blues and greys, underlying copper tones and green leaves. Black rhinos love Guarri leaves and everyone loves the black rhinos so it all bodes well for accommodation of the finest luxury. Finally, Tree Wisteria Suite is a popular feminine abode, made up in gorgeous mauves and purples, lavenders and greys, muted coppers and gorgeous blues everywhere offset with pale green walls and extraordinary choices of furnishings.

All these lavish suites are tasteful, carefully planned and decked out in quality furnishings and décor that satisfy every guest in every way.   These bush chalets are all extraordinary in design and size, bigger than your own home and fancier than you could ever have imagined. 

Uniquely designed and decorated, they are plush, comfortable, inviting and embracing and they boast large beds, walk in showers inside and out, deep comfy bathtubs, coffee machines, mini bars, mosquito nets and exquisite decks showing off inviting blue plunge pools. The privacy is huge, you may as well be alone here. Celebrating trees, each suite is a pod, of a tree, here in the wilds of Silvan Lodge. Everything flows, is connected, is life.

A Grand Safari Affair at Silvan Safari Lodge Near Kruger

This is a grand safari venue – the experience out there, in the bushveld, on game drives and around the dinner table. Everything works and everything is about the trees, the wildlife, the aura of the real wild world outside.  Find solitary nooks and crannies to read a book from a hanging chair, or in the lounge on a vast sofa with soft cushions, or out on the enormous decks where the bee eater flits and you can stretch out on an oversize day bed while a waiter serves you cocktails. 

Cruising around the Sabi Sands, connected to Kruger, is exciting and you should see delightful lions, leopards, cheetahs and rhinos, not forgetting elephants and hippos, crocs and antelope galore. The real nature gallery where you walk and drive comes into the beauty of Silvan Luxury Lodge, a work of art in itself. Take beautiful photos and have these printed for canvas in in the Silvan Studio in modern Apple Computers. 

Afterward, hit the Ansellia Orchid Spa for a massage before going to bed to read about the trees around you. Evening meals can be paired with the best wines in the country from the private cellars signature collection. Seafood is flown in every week for guests to enjoy deep in the heart of the bushveld. 

The Silvan Safari Lodge pleasures are evidence that people make things happen, and community is vital for ongoing connectivity and success. The staff love Africa, the Kruger, and the Sabi Sands, just as most tourists fall in love with Africa too and never want to leave. The heart of the human condition.  

Sabi Sands is known as one of South Africa’s greatest game reserves and Silvan Lodge lies in the centre of this region, as big as Wales in the UK, untouched and revered for its sanctuary for wildlife. People have made it happen so community is important to Silvan Safari Lodge which has funded an education method for learners based on digital platforms that are accessible for all who live remotely. Silvan is dedicated to preserving Africa’s heritage and works with Wildlife ACT to ensure conservation is an ongoing futuristic goal.

Overview

Trees, birds, originality, colour, wonder and awe – the reality of connections in nature and with people. This is Silvan Safari Loge, a new addition to the collection of luxury safari lodges in the spectacular Sabi Sands Game Reserve next to the famous Kruger National Park.  The aim here is to impart the magical interweaving strands of life within the pristine landscape and its resident wildlife species to guests who then see the value of our natural heritage and spread the story of conservation. 

Choose one of 6 suites decorated and named after iconic trees in the reserve, the Cassia, Knobthorn, Kierie Klapper and Tree Wisteria, with verdant leaves, purple or yellow blossoms. The family suite, Leadwood is named after this huge heavy tree that grows so well in this region and is an excellent source of firewood to make roaring hot bonfire.

The other suites are so unusual and so classy that they defy description. Each one is vast, with expansive pool decks, swimming pools, outside and inside showers and deep bathtubs with wilderness views, spacious sitting rooms and large firm beds for a great night’s rest. Enormous dressing rooms and storage areas plus high tech technology – useful if you want to send photos to friends and family or download something good to listen to!

Bring the children to make the most of this extraordinary safari holiday in an opulent paradise where game rangers become their best friends and they learn about the connections in biodiversity, and how they also play a vital role in conservation.     

Set off in an open 4×4 safari vehicle to find the big cats and the bigger plant eaters like elephants, hippos, rhinos, wildebeest and giraffes. Sip a freshy brewed coffee and wait for some wildlife action, your cinema that keeps on rolling. When you get back choose a deck to laze on, gin and tonic in hand, then plunge into the large pool where you can do laps, it is so long. 

Listen to the water flowing and tickling at the Ansellia Orchid Spa while strong warm hands massage your back and shoulders, feet and neck. Coffee flows all day and staff are ever attentive. Sink into a huge couch and doze off as the birds sing to you. 

Your private suite is so private you may forget that you are part of the Silvan Safari Loge setting and need to make it to dinner on time in the boma. Here, experienced world class chefs grill fresh meat on the fire and add delicious side dishes to the table to enthral your taste buds.

The gin experience is worth waiting for, with a gin tasting of nearly 40 different gins from around the globe – pink, botanical, craft and simply, GIN.  Try a few each evening before the sky turns black. You may think that you are in a fantasy world where nothing is real anymore, but where you are the main character in your safari tale.

Remember why you are here: nature conservation, revelation in nature, being part of sustainable tourism and giving back to people and planet. Experiencing this kind of a safari is important for the soul, for all life. Choose Silvan Safari Lodge this vacation in Africa, we have the best package deals available for your family break.
