The Spirit of Silvan

Mindful Magic Making a Difference

Silvan Safari is grounded in the breathtaking natural elements around it, the inspirational trees, our beautiful bee-eater bird, the incredible wildlife and the charismatic people who bring her story to life. These distinctive ingredients make Silvan Safari tick and bring that characteristic magic to the entire Silvan Safari experience, where inspiration meets actualisation.

An innate understanding of the bush and a deeply embedded love for Africa and her people is where Silvan Safari's story takes root.

Silvan Safari's essence is to create incredible safari experiences for our guests. However, there's a bigger purpose behind everything we do. In order to keep sharing Africa's most magical moments with you, we need to conserve every element for future generations.


Silvan Safari was created as a paradigm of inspiration, unleashing unlimited creativity with unrestrained possibility

Potential abounds in everyone, and Silvan's desire is to awaken this, create a lasting impact and initiate this journey forwards. Like a ripple in a pond, slowly growing in momentum and power, there is an embedded drive at Silvan to create a lasting impact on many lives.

Our Location

The Rolls-Royce of Reserves

We mindfully and carefully chose Silvan Safari's location in the iconic Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve. Sharing an unfenced border with part of the greater Kruger National Park, this part of South Africa is renowned for incredible wildlife sightings. However, it's also known for its conservation initiatives and efforts to restore the bushveld.

“One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.”

Conserving today for tomorrow

People are by far Africa's greatest artwork. By inference, Africa's wildlife is thus the colourful brush strokes within each painting, connecting each element and giving meaning and substance to each masterpiece. Only by protecting these special details will the overall artwork continue to hold meaning.

Guided by a love for nature, Africa, and its inhabitants, Silvan has partnered with Wildlife ACT, a cause dedicated to preserving the continent's endangered wildlife and the wild spaces they inhabit. Together, we actively participate in sustainable and long-term conservation and rehabilitation efforts in Africa.
