Leadwood Family Suite

Silvan’s Family Masterpiece

A true icon of the African bush and the backdrop to Silvan Safari, the Leadwood tree is the entire inspiration behind this family suite.  An extremely dense hardwood, the Leadwood is a favourite for animals who feed on its leaves but also very popular for the campfire known for its intense heat and lasting embers. 

The Leadwood Suite’s majestic stone archway is the perfect entrance to greet any guest to this magnificent hideaway. However, the mighty ancient Leadwood tree emerging through the deck, having been rooted here for aeons, is the true master of this space with the beauty of this tree proving to be utterly mesmerising.

The Leadwood Family Suite is split into two separate bedroom areas, connected by the open-air deck. The soothing soft blues and grey tones within mimic the characteristic bark of the Leadwood trees found outside. Designed for families to travel and share the safari experience together, Leadwood offers exemplary luxurious family living.

The true spirit of the trees - where families are united in an exceptional African experience

Soothing, soft blues and greys adorn the interior of Leadwood. The introduction of delicate copper treasures in surprising elements bring a homely warmth to this family space. The master bedroom leads onto a quiet corner of deck with magnificent views of the greenery beyond. The second bedroom commands a front-row seat to the daydeck, superbly secluded and hidden by mighty Leadwood himself.

No detail has been spared in Leadwood’s two en suite bathrooms. The main bathroom boasts stunning views of the riverbed, especially from the large luxurious bathtub, while both offer enormous double showers. The secluded outdoor shower is an indulgence which cannot be missed.

The story of the Leadwood is entwined throughout the double bedroom suite. Initially found in the delicate embroidery of the couch and ottoman, the journey continues along the walls in numerous collaborative paintings which include a myriad of animals whose lives are all connected to this significant tree.

The all-encompassing river view from the Leadwood Suite holds the promise of magnificent wildlife sightings - particularly from the resident elephant herds which enjoy the dense and rich grazing on offer in the riverbed below.

The Leadwood's expansive day deck boasts ample room to relax and unwind. From the sun loungers and outdoor seating area to the intimate dining area and private plunge pool, there is more than enough room for the whole family.

The true spirit of Africa nourishes the soul, enlivens the spirit and leaves us wanting more.
