Join Us for a Silvan Summer: Silvan Safari Blog


October 15, 2021

Summertime is nearly here in South Africa, and there’s no better place to spend it than at Silvan! The holiday season is fast approaching, and if you’re looking for the perfect location, the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve where you’ll find Silvan should be at the top of your list. We have plenty to keep you and your family entertained during this special time of the year. If you ask us, there’s nowhere better to spend Christmas than in Kruger!

Top Reasons to Spend Summer at Silvan

1. Exhilarating Activities

If you’re heading south to visit us, swap the snow and cold for a sunny safari adventure. Spend time with our famous spotted cats as you venture into the bush with our expert guides. From game drives to walking safaris, we’ve got plenty to keep the entire family entertained.

For those wanting to take it easy, the onsite Ansellia Spa offers various world-class treatments to pamper you from head to toe. Most importantly, our staff are on hand to ensure that your time at Silvan is as memorable as possible by catering to your every need.

2. Christmas in Kruger, Anyone?

Our “reindeer” look a little different and are far less fond of sleighs. You may also battle to find snow at Silvan over Christmas time. But, one thing we can promise is that we always celebrate in style!

Our team goes the extra mile to ensure plenty of festive cheer and celebration for guests at Silvan over the holidays. If you’ve been looking forward to a hearty Christmas lunch since Boxing Day last year, you can rest assured that we’ve got you covered (and then some).

3. Pools with a View

Spend your summer days at Silvan watching wildlife wander past from the comfort of your very own private plunge pool. Each of our six suites has its own pool where you can cool off and relax as the animals stroll by. From time to time, you may even have a curious visitor or two!

If you don’t feel comfortable sharing your pool with our local pachyderms, the main lodge’s pool is the perfect place to sip on a cocktail, soak up the sun, or get in a few laps.

4. Ice-Cold G&Ts

One of the most iconic moments on any African safari is sunset. At Silvan, we’ve made it a tradition to honour this magical time of day. Savour the beauty of the African bush as the sun dips beneath the horizon as you sip on a perfectly blended G&T.

The classic safari refreshment, G&T and sunsets go together like Silvan and safari. We’re proud to have the widest selection of craft gins anywhere in the Sabi Sand, and our team will ensure that you celebrate sunsets in the time-honoured safari tradition.
