Silvan Experiences

Relax. Revive. Reconnect.

Look no further than the foothold of the lodge, and you will already feel the spirit of Silvan's trees wafting through the air. From the majestic walls of stone which make up the grand entrance way to the minimalist, modern architecture accentuated by flashes of colour and wondrous designs, the Silvan Experience is one of mindfulness and restoration.

Decks throughout the lodge ensure that everyone has a place to relax and unwind. A grand, handwoven nest, swinging from a Jackalberry tree, lends artistic character to this lodge. The living areas are clad with copper bars and oversized daybeds fit for lazing on the deck and at the pool. Each moment is intrinsically woven with spirituality and harmony.

Don't leave anything but your footprints. Don't take anything but your memories. 

Game Drives

A spectacular big 5 experience

Silvan Art

Curated with mindfulness

The theme of our commissioned artworks are centred around the very nature of Silvan Safari – the trees. These works were not based on botanical renderings of trees, but more the interpretation of how the artist was inspired by nature, the individual tree species, relationships between trees and people or trees and animals, birds and insects, and even aspects of local mythology.
