Silvan Family Tree

The true heartbeat of Africa

The Silvan Story is marked by the people who make it exceptional. Hailing from all corners of the continent, our experts in all aspects of safari hold their responsibility for creating the Silvan Experience in high esteem. They eat, breathe and live the journey.

All branches of the Silvan Family share a deeply-rooted love for Africa. Shake the hands of those who mould our story. Return the smiles of those who light our way. Africa's greatest artwork is her people, and nowhere is this masterpiece more celebrated than at Silvan.
