Head Chef

Sabie Park, Mpumalanga, South Africa · Silvan Safari


Silvan Safari Lodge redefines the notion of luxury safari, by providing guests with exclusive access to an authentic African bush experience paired with exceptional service. From waking to the resounding roar of the lion as the spectacular African sun rises over the midlands, to dipping in the crystal safari pool, champagne in hand, as the silhouetted landscape disappears with the sunset; Silvan Safari pushes the boundaries on an all-inclusive escape. Surrounded by lush vegetation on the outskirts of the Kruger National Park, Silvan Safari boasts six aesthetically pleasing modern suites, each equipped with a private plunge pool. The main lodge, suspended in the indigenous treetops, provides majestic panoramic views of the Manyeleti River. The lodge also hosts its very own spa, encapsulating the epitome of a luxurious safari experience.
