The Spirit of Silvan

Mindfulness, nature and the people of Silvan 

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

Magic is created when inspiration meets actualisation. Silvan’s essence is to create an incredible safari experience, but in so doing being able to make a difference far wider reaching and far more significant. Silvan has a responsibility to leave a lasting legacy, one which inspires others, one which uplifts and influences for many years to come.

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

Only by protecting these special details will the overall artwork continue to hold meaning.
