Fine Dining in the Bush: Silvan Safari Blog


August 29, 2022

Although it's fair to assume that food is not number one on your list of priorities when going on safari, fine dining in the bush at Silvan Safari will make you rethink this! From the unmatched brilliance of an African sunrise breakfast to feasting on delicious culinary treats at sunset, Silvan Safari in Sabi Sand celebrates uniquely extraordinary experiences throughout the day. And one of these is experimenting with flavourful fine dining.

Starters: Fine Dining in the Bush

The tastes of Silvan can be described as a culinary experience that celebrates fresh, local ingredients. Our chefs use the breathtaking natural surroundings as inspiration when curating each menu. Furthermore, they take great pride in ensuring each dish accentuates the dining experience and complements Silvan's stunning setting.

Mains: Decadent Dishes at Silvan Safari 

Here at Silvan Safari, we like to keep things fresh. Whether you're dining in the Modjaji dining room, on the exquisite Jackalberry tree-shrouded lower breakfast deck, or your very own private patio, no two dining experiences are ever alike.

Breakfast is a bodacious affair while lunch is kept light because even we have to admit that one can only eat so much in a day! On the other hand, dinner is a delight with a three-course menu to satisfy all of your sweet and savoury cravings, encompassing the true tastes of Silvan Safari.

High-tea is a luxurious affair with a spread of scrumptious snacks that will make your taste buds sing. And don't forget to grab a sippy cup for your afternoon game drive because there's nothing like a refreshing drink on the road!

Speaking of drinks, in true Silvan Safari fashion, sundowners are anything but ordinary. Sip on a glass of your choice of tipple as the sun sets on the horizon in a fantastic display of colour, and the bush comes alive with the creatures of the night.

As If It Couldn’t Get Any Better… 

Some experiences are truly worth "writing home about", and a bush breakfast is definitely one of them. Don't think for a second that this means you won't be eating like royalty – you can expect nothing but the very best, even if you're in the middle of the bush! Enjoy a delicious breakfast while watching nyala bushbuck a short distance away, enjoying their own breakfast.
